BROOKLYN64.COM is happy to support Beatriz in her campaign for the upcoming USCF Executive Board Election. There is no question that her election would be a change for the better for New York Chess, and the clubs that we frequently play in. If you are a member of the USCF and have not yet registered to vote, please take a moment to do so now! With so few voting members, every single vote counts in this election.
Beatriz, a member of the Marshall Chess Club, is the current Vice President of the World Chess Federation (FIDE), a former President of the U.S. Chess Federation and a candidate for the upcoming USCF Executive Board elections.
Following a reception from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Beatriz will talk about the difficulty of returning to high-level competitive chess after a long semi-retirement and the challenges she faced when preparing for and competing in the 2011 U.S. Women’s Championship. She will present and analyze some of her most interesting and instructive games played in that event.
We will learn about Beatriz’ work at FIDE and will have the chance to ask questions about world chess politics. Beatriz will also share her vision for the USCF including how she plans to support chess clubs such as the Marshall.
If you are unable to attend tonight’s event but would like to support Beatriz in the upcoming USCF elections you are required to register here by March 30, 2013. It is an easy process – USCF members aged 16 and older only need their USCF ID and date of birth.
