Editor Tom Braunlich, of Oklahoma Chess Federation has included an extensive article on Westark Chess Club and President Karis Bellisario, in the January 2017 issue of Oklahoma Chess Monthly (OCM). The article features results of recent tournaments, as well as promotes upcoming Arkansas chess events: this months Winter Warm-up and march’s AR Open. There are feature photos from the OK/AR Friendly Feud, plus a map of the chess region.
Check out the excellent article, with photos, here: http://ocfchess.org/pdf/OCM-2017-01-01.pdf. The third issue of this new publication covering chess in the area. The OCM replaces the former OK Chess Quarterly that was a printed newsletter (more like a book) published by Frank Berry for over 10 years.
The newsletter also includes other articles of interest to chess players anywhere, and puzzles to conquer, games to replay and learn from. If you want to get email notification of future issues, be sure to register for the free monthly online publication here.
