In this week’s Tactics Time podcast Tim interviewed Fred Spell. Fred is a great asset to the Colorado Chess Community, serving as Editor of the Colorado Chess Informant and doing an outstanding job, being an active tournament player, organizing and directing outstanding tournaments, and maintaining his own website where he publishes his own monthly newsletter with games played in Colorado Springs, and back issues of the Colorado Chess Informant (in technicolor!).
Fred and Joe Fromme are running a “Tribute to Bobby Fischer Tournament” next weekend (May 21-22), which sounds like it will be outstanding. This will be the third Bobby Fischer Tribute tournament held in Colorado.
Fred does a class act with everything he touches, so I have no doubt that the Bobby Fischer tournament is going to be outstanding. Fred mentioned that all of the entry fees go towards the prizes! The playing site is a great, beautiful location, which easily accessable from both Denver and Colorado Springs. There will even be free coffee (yay!)
