R.I.P. Mike Goodall

Mike Goodall, my friend and colleague in chess, passed away on October 5, 2010. For 40 years Mike Goodall gave time and money to the cause of improving chess in California. Highlights of his service include directing the United States Chess Championship in 1975, 1984 and 1986. Mr. Goodall also directed the United States Women’s Chess Championship in 1984 and 1986. Mike Goodall will be remembered for his ability to run chess tournaments in the most professional manner and for his great skill at chess.
