Ummi petik dari blog Andrew Ooi di GilaChess
I sat beside Encik KZ for most of the NC tournament and I know it’s a thankless job. Sure, It may look easy but it’s not. He missed his lunch on many occasions just because somebody had to be there at the tournament hall while me and Arshad went for our lunch. Besides that you have to be quick on your toes to make unexpected changes in the pairings (eg: dropouts, byes, walkovers etc). Those that are eager but new to arbitering is easy to spot. The event usually starts a few hours late because of “unexpected” events. The NC ran very smoothly thanks to Encik KZ.
Comment Ummi: Sebenarnya abah tak sihat mmg dah 3 minggu makan bubur je tu sebab kalau tak kene berada kat tournament hall pun mmg abah tak larat nak keluar. Alhamdulillah balik dari tournament tu dapat appointment di Pusat Kesihatan Alternatif. Walaupun masih menyeret2 kaki kerana kebas tangan kanan abah dah lega dah boleh drive (hehe seronok Ummi boleh “off” duty jadi driver sepanjang cuti sekolah ni🙂 )
