Every American and Canadian team members have emailed or called to report their travel information to us for logistical purposes. Guess what the information showed?
50% of both TEAM USA AND TEAM CANADA will be arriving on the same flight!
Six American parents with children and two Canadian parents with children will all meet at the same boarding gate in the United States. For security reasons we will not mention the city nor the flight, but you parents know what I am talking about.
1. Abol Taghizadeh - United States
2. Nam Nguyen - United States
3. Miriam Istafanous - United States
4. David Zeng - United States
5. David Gilchrist - United States
6. Dan Troff - United States
7. Janak Awatramani - Canada
8. Amanda Sui - Canada
However not to be undone, Pardha Karamsetty with two adults and two children will be arriving 25-minutes before "THE HAPPY 50%" straight from Texas.
But, an American and Canadian parent and chessplayer will be arriving the night before straight from Mexico City:
1. Ashok Aaron - United States
2. Anna Jin - Canada
So who is the last member of both the American and Canadian delegation to arrive?
1. Steven Finney and son - United States
For the first and last American to arrive at the airport in Mazatlan, you will receive a free pick-up from your head of delegation PERSONALLY - no taxi for you but a ride in our vehicule at no charge - that would be Ashok Aaron and son as well as Steven Finney and son.
