The Twin Ports Fianchetto --- Team Cold Climate

  • Duluth, MN International 
  • Formed: Sep 7, 2008
  • This is a group for those chess warriors living in cold climates, or maybe you were born in a cold climate, or maybe you'd like to live in a cold climate, or perhaps you once had a dream in which the temperature dropped below freezing, and you have nothing better to do on a cold winter night than play the great ancient game... and it shows. We will participate in as many team matches and vote chess matches as possible. Anybody from anywhere is welcome. If you're not from anywhere that's fine as well. All skill levels are absolutely welcome, and feel free to invite friends from anywhere in the world!

  • Fun facts not mentioned in Willard Scott's Smuckers segment during Good Morning America. Least we forget time may still allow Diesen may break that record, or you, or I for that matter. Lord willing as some may say.

  • Since more than a few members have Chicago connections of one kind or another I will relay this information: while looking up current news in Chicago Trib I noted reference to "Leighton Criminal Courts Building"..It rings a bell.. luckily names are not only awarded posthumously..per Google Judge George N Leighton is 103 years of age..well known to those who played under the 'el' on Wabash decades ago..
