Open letter to the Fresno Chess Club

This page was last updated: September 17, 2018

Do to the many successes of the Fresno Chess Club our Club was recently displayed on the Home page of the U.S. Chess Federation website. There is a slide show of 12 popular personalities displayed on the Home page and the Fresno Chess Club is slide #6. If you click on #6 a special page dedicated to the Fresno Chess Club appears. 

During the interview with CLO I mentioned several times the team effort made by members of the Fresno Chess Club and the valuable contributions they’ve made. Unfortunately most of that conversation was left out of the online article currently posted. I would like to set the record straight. Here are the names of some of the people who I feel are responsible for the success and achievements made by the Fresno Chess Club.









As you can see our success was the result of a team effort.
Currently the Fresno Chess Club is being spotlighted by the US Chess Federation as a model chess club for all the world to see. We should all be thankful for the affiliation of those people I’ve named. For the Fresno Chess Club to be receiving this acclamation that it is now receiving this would be impossible for one man to achieve by himself. 

Sincerely and respectfully, 

Bob Rasmussen
