Johnny Owens Wins The ECC October Monthly Swiss!


Bob Kilmer, Rudy McKinney and Johnny Owens did battle tonight at the Elizabethtown Chess Club Monthly Swiss.  Last month only Johnny and Sal played in the monthly swiss. Sal recently had a fall and was too sore to make it this month. In the end, Johnny came out the victor.

I find it sad that in the last 2 Tuesday tournaments (monthly) only a total of 5 members played. It shows that a majority of club players are no longer interested in supporting the chess club. When I'm here at play at the Chinese restaurant, we're lucky to have 4 players anymore. It has been Rudy, Sal, Jerry and myself. But, on 1 Oct, only I was present. I got there about 6:15 and departed about 1 hour later. I realize people have things going on in there busy schedule and sometimes chess has to take a back seat. In order to revitalize the club, maybe we should think about bringing the meetings back to ECTC or changing the day we meet. Or maybe we should contact all club members and find out if any of them plan on making the commitment necessary to insure that the club remains active. If not, we should consider disbanding the chess club. Kerry
