Chess friends and families:

Due to a variety of personal and practical reasons (including my ongoing flood recovery efforts) I have decided to retire from being a Tournament Director.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 20+ years of running scholastic chess events, but it is time to pass the baton.  I am hopeful that others will pick up where I am leaving off, and take Vermont youth chess to new heights.  If you are interested in being involved in planning, running or promoting scholastic chess, please let me know, and I will connect you with other like-minded people.

I am still willing to assist with future chess events (monitoring, scoring, etc.)  In addition I have numerous resources, including equipment and funding, that I will gladly pass along to the person or group that is willing to direct the Vermont State Scholastics in the future.  If that might be you, please let me know.

Thank you for all the wonderful times!
