After a lot of back and forth and logistical confusion, the arrangements are made. I’ll be accompanying my daughter and her chess team when they go to compete in Nashville, Tennessee, at the 2005 US Chess Federation Supernationals. The PS 282 Royals, in only their second year as a team, managed to score a wild-card slot in the NYC Chess in the Schools Grand Prix. That earns them a trip to Nashville. The kids are excited, the parents are proud, and the knights and bishops are ready to fly.

So in the first week in April, I expect I’ll be trying my first attempt at chessblogging.
