USCF Top Correspondence Chess Players

Below is a list of the United States Chess Federation top 25 correspondence chess players for June 2010. Of personal note is number twelve, Thomas Langland. He is our current Calchess president and very active in the scholastic chess scene of Northern California. In fact, every time I see Tom he is burdened as a chief tournament director at a major scholastic event but still takes the time listen to my concerns. I hope Tom is able to continue as our President because I feel he puts the chess players of California first and avoids the dirty politics that have plagued Calchess in the not so distant past.  Make sure to pay http://tracychess.home.mindspring.com/ a visit to see what Tom is doing for his local scholastic chess players.

Number 18, Gary Walters, is another  player of personal interest. Gary just finished winning the 2009 USCF Absolute Championship. This is the United States Chess Federation’s strongest correspondence chess tournament held each year. Gary Walters also maintains a wonderfully informative blog  at http://graysonebc.blogspot.com/ It is very apparent from his blog that he enjoys chess a great deal and writes from a position of great understanding. I am recommending that USCF members strongly consider casting a vote for Gary Walters so that he can be a part of the next United States Chess Federation Executive Board.
