As for the contacts list, my name is Van. About the Hadley chess course, I will look into it as I am sure it will help me better my chess gameplay. The chess board, I already have as it belongs to my step-son who received it after finishing his time at the California School for the Blind. Although, from all the chess variants that I have been reading about, a second board would surely be used. Alice chess sure sounds fun to play. Alvin and myself have already started a game, and this will be the first time I will be using notation. I'm learning as I go, and I hope I don't break any rules of the list unintentionally. even if I get frustrated with a current game, I always think that there is the next one. I've made some out an out silly mistakes and learned not to do them the next time around. Here's to making mistakes and learning from them. Cheers! Talk soon, Van .
