Trusting the Executive Director by samsloan
If you have an Executive Director who is utterly worthless, or who does not tell the board what he is doing or who often lies about what he has done, then you have a situation where the ED cannot be trusted with such critical decisions as the hiring or firing of the Editor of Chess Life. The USCF has lost more than two million dollars since 1999 and is losing $300,000 more so far this year. None...

Beware of Rob ("The Robber") Mitchell by samsloan
I am posting this here just to warn the occasional passers-by to ignore the postings by Rob ("The Robber") Mitchell. Rob (The Robber") Mitchell is not a chess player. He has never played a rated game. He is not a member of the USCF. He really has no connection with chess. He joined the USCF for just one year in 2004. That was just so that he could apply for a job with the USCF. He applied first...

My Big Win At Foxwoods by samsloan
I won $2 (two dollars) at Foxwoods. If you ever go there, be sure to take the Chinese Bus. Do not go by Greyhound. The Chinese Bus costs $10 for a round trip ticket plus they gave me $55 in coupons. The $15 coupon is to pay for food. The $40 in coupons are what we call "two- for-ones". Basically you bet $10 cash plus one $10 coupon on a even- money bet like roulette, red and black. If you win,...

More Mishandling of Life Membership Assets by samsloan
More Mishandling of Life Membership Assets Grant Perks puts his finger on the problem but misses the solution. The problem is not the board and not the failure to pass a balanced budget. We always pass a balanced budget. If the Executive Director presents an unbalanced budget including a lot of money for his friends, we simply write in a bunch of nice looking numbers and presto- chango the...

Great Accomplishment by Erik Anderson in Idaho Schools Chess by samsloan
I initially missed the article that appeared in the New York Times two days ago, but this is a truly great development: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/20/us/20chess.html What needs to be noted (and what nobody else has commented on thus far) is that this program comes from Erik Anderson and his American Foundation for Chess. It also should be recalled that a certain person was attacking Mr.

Where is the Quarterly Financial Report? by samsloan
I think you recognize and agree that during my one year on the board I consistently advocated a big cut in expenses. In particular, I advocated very specific cuts that would have reduced expenses by $80,000 without any reduction in services to the membership. Unfortunately, at that time the board was deadlocked. I could only get two-and a half to three votes to cut expenses. With a...

Watson on "The Outline of Contract Bridge" by samsloan
Louis Henry Watson was a rapidly rising star in the World of Bridge. At the age of only 29, he had won virtually every major title that existed, playing with partners that included Oswald Jacoby, Howard Schenken and Sam Fry. Watson was ranked the number four bridge player in the world. On Valentine's Day, February 14, 1936, in what seemed to be perfect health, after a luncheon, Watson became ill...

Know about GRAND CHESS by Sanny
I was talking about new Games and Help Bot suggested me that why not have a board 100x100 size. That is too Big. We see people have mastered Chess so deep that they have just memorized first 10 Moves. But the beauty of Chess lies in its complexities. Here is a new GRAND CHESS I propose.
