SCHOLASTIC CHESS UPDATE  10.12.01

By Bob Ferguson, Member of USCF Scholastic Council

Greetings to All Chess Folks,

One of the Scholastic Council’s goals is to improve communication among members of the scholastic community.  This e-Newsletter is the second step towards reaching this goal.  Our first step was the creation of a Scholastic Chess Website to communicate what the Scholastic Council is and what goals are being pursued.  For details, please visit www.chess.isgenius.com.

The following alphabetical list is a partial listing of the topics on the site.  We will continue to update this information monthly.  If you are not interested in scholastic chess, please click the reply button and type “remove” in the subject line.  If you know others who would like to receive this information, please forward the URL for the website to them.

We hope to soon have online registration, so that we can establish a means of identifying problems and discuss solutions.

Creativity is absolutely necessary to express the best chess at the board.  I realized that being a grandmaster is like being a painter.  A grandmaster is an artist—he paints on the chessboard.  Like a great painting, his game is given to the world!
