Ending Notes...

Hello ANCC players,

Two items to make known.  One:  I would like our in-house chess tourney to be completed by our club meeting on Tuesday, May 29th.  Most of the games are in, but there are a couple players with a couple of games left, so please come in these next two weeks to cover your games.  Our goal was to have this tourney done in 3 months, and it would be great to reach that.

The other item I need to announce, which impacts the above, is that I will be moving to Kansas likely in the beginning of June, and will be unable to continue to host ANCC.  ANCC could continue in a number of ways.  One is an ANCC member becoming a Turner's member, and continue holding gatherings in our current wonderful location in Turner Hall.  A Turner member must be present at our gatherings as per Turners agreement in letting us use the facility.  Or, a current ANCC player could facilitate the club at a different location.  I would love to see the club continue, but it does take time and commitment to keep the club going. 

As some of you know, I have been looking for full-time work for some time, and I have some opportunities in Wichita Kansas that I am pursuing.  In addition, my school age kids live there, and I wish to be back with them and more involved with their activities and such.  I am looking at the first week of June to be moving.  We could meet one last time at ANCC on 5 June, but I am not for sure on that yet.  Hence, finishing up the tourney by 29 May.  Even if we were to meet on 5 June, it would be nice to have the tourney finished anyway, and have more time for casual games. 

It is very sad to say good-bye to ANCC.  I truly appreciate and value the frienships of all of you, and hope to stay in touch as I continue my journey.  I also hope to start a chess club in Wichita, and perhaps us chess players will meet in other chess venues and events!
