Armies push through weather to win!

While the known saying that an army fights on its stomach is historic in its roots and truth, modern armies must not only be fed, but fight through all types of weather, be it hot, cold, wet or dry. 

At ANCC last night (Tuesday, 19 April 2011) we proved just that!  Feeding on Turner food, we generals pushed our forces across the board while storms raged turbulently.   At one point, our forces were pitched into darkness, but alas, quick thinking club members kept the war on across the chess table by playing via cell phone light/flashlight app!!

The power at Turners did come back on after about 15 minutes or so, but the battles did continue, and were not in the least slowed by outside forces.  Identify, adapt, and overcome!  :)

While the weather outside was frightful (I know, its not holiday time, but still) and probably kept a few players from joining us, we still had a good, strong showing.  Thanks to all that came and had fun!  Thanks Brad for the visit, and I hope your 'little brother' saw something of the chess world where he might want to join someday/time. 

Till next week, or until some news too juicy to keep until then..
