Andrew Martin arrived safely and soundly this afternoon at O'Hare international. Then we had supper with our mutual friend, a master from the Chicagoland area, Vince Berry. Vince, ever the gentleman, picked up the tab and hopes to play in Hastings next year (the December after this December). Andrew is tired and has gone to sleep. All three of us thought "Jamie" was an excellent waitress at "Al's Steakhouse." In Joliet, try it.

The second "safe" landing is the arrival of the Lasker The Ultimate Streetfighter book. It looks very nice and everyone who comes to the Chess Clinic this weekend gets one for FREE. There will be copies available at $12.95 after the event plus $2.00 for shipping in the USA. Or you can join the G&L Continuity Program and get a FREE book from the "Chess Gangs of New York and London" collection if you purchase an average of $50 a month or more for each paired month (Nov-Dec, Jan-Feb, Mar-April, etc.)

Sorry I didn't write yesterday, have made up a list of 39 things to take care of before this Friday. It wears one out just looking at it.

If you come to the Chess Clinic this weekend at the last minute, we will welcome you, but right now I am thinking of the 35 who have paid and bought in early.
