October 9th is National Chess Day

Today is National Chess Day by "Presidential Proclamation". With the World Chess Championship down to the wire (see Kramnik Strikes Back) now is a good time to get yourself - and your family and friends - playing the game.

Poor Rook, however, has not been playing chess much of late. I suffered some minor injuries in a fall off of the backporch stairs. But the worst is behind me and I look forward to getting back in the groove playing chess and in updating this blog with more chess items of interest and progress updates on my chess improvement plan.
