Happy National Chess Day!
Here in the US, today (Oct 9th) is National Chess Day. Originally President Ford issued a letter in support of National Chess Day, but it never quite became official. This year the USCF worked with members of the US Senate to get an official proclamation issued. More details can be found here. What does all this mean? Well, for one thing, Wholesale Chess is having a National Chess Day sale. You could pick up a nice tournament set for 10% off!
