Former club helpers

Here are some people you may recognise who used to help out at the club!

Greg Young is a former USA junior chess champion who helped out at the club in 2015. He is a great chess teacher and he organised lots of fun events such as bullet chess and a chess-go competition, and he played 13 players at once blindfold. He had some special tape for sticking on people who made "tapeworthy" moves (in other words, mistakes!).
