Great news! Congratulations!

This is becoming old hat for you Dan but it is a state web site that the members can't compensate you enough for . Thank you for all the time you dedicate to maintaining the site .

The awards list page has links to several first rate stories . My favorite would be the Amsterdam Pub Crawl .

Wouldn't it be nice if the Portland Chess Club could do something similar using coffee houses along with the establishments serving alcohol .

Congratulations! You've been adding to the great experience Maine players have had for so long and we're grateful for the work!

Always so proud of you guys...............Jon

Congratulations Dan- well deserved!
