West Coast Chess Institute, Welcome 2021 to all.

Blog Discussion Forum

Greetings to all my fellow bloggers and readers. I had to take a break as family time is vital and rest from online platforms to ensure one comes back rejuvenated and inspired is essential. Even though I took a break I still played the occasional online chess game…lol, just could not totally break away. I did not complete what I set out to do last year and will conclude with the remaining World champs in due course. Phew, I am so excited!!

Nevertheless I would like to wish everyone a Blessed 2021, I hope that our journey will be even more interesting and exciting this year. I already kicked off the year with an article I wrote for our local newspaper, more about that later.

Till next time, burn the chess candle on both ends.
