What a tumultuous beginning to the school year. Already our Florida chess families have shown resilience during this trying time. Your determination to remain cool while facing danger and willingness to show leadership while small eyes watch and learn, is a large feat and I commend all of you. The children in the communities hit by this year’s hurricane season will be fighters and a force to be reckoned with for years to come. All because of your preparedness and our Florida community leaders. Your ability to help one another out in the midst of destruction is what keeps me focused on the goal, keeps me fighting and keeps me motivated to advocate for all the tiny chess players coming aboard and the tall seniors, graduating this year. Looking towards the future the way we do in chess, observing every move and patiently moving ahead, strategically winning.
Families, I welcome you back to some normalcy, to focus on what our children love and participate in all our safe and enriching tournaments we have planned for you. We are proud of our supportive families and are honored to be involved with such a dedicated chess community.
Children, I welcome you to join us along with thousands of chess players throughout this great state of Florida and hope that you challenge yourself to be the best at what you excel at, chess.
I welcome you to enjoy a fun and educational experience with FSCL as we are determined on creating tournaments that enrich the player’s chess experience while expecting well managed quality events.
We are always trying to improve our organization and surpass the goals from the previous scholastic year. We welcome your thoughts and suggestions in trying to create a safe and challenging experience. Your cooperation is instrumental in order to have well-organized and successful events. We are enthusiastic and ready to have another amazing year!
