If I remember my high school Latin correctly Caesar sent this message back to Rome after a successful military campaign. Translated it means: I came, I saw, I conquered. Chris, our Club visitor last night, could have sent the same message back to his brother after he went through me like a dose of Epsom salts winning 5 out of 6 games against me and going 2 for 2 against Joe.
Chris was visiting his brother, a soldier at Ft Knox, and found our web site which prompted a visit. Chris if you are reading this, look up Dr. David Armisto in the phone book when you get home; David is not a USCF member either but loves to play chess. And please visit us again anytime you are in town.
Other news from last night includes the return of Sal. Sal and I played two games last night to help him clean the cob webs from his "chess mind". Sal, it was good to see you back!
Rudy and Johnny played a ladder game, I don't have the outcome. Joe and Gelvic also played a ladder game which I believe resulted in a stalemate. Johnny will probably post the results later as he played in the first game and observed the second.
Here's wishing everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
