Making It All Worthwhile

Published on Sunday, April 23, 2006 in , ,

I just received the following e-mail, and I am republishing it here with the permission of the sender, who asked to be kept anonymous:

Hi there Scott, I just wanted to tell you thank you for your wonderful site. Currently I'm working on a mentalism/hypnosis show that I will be doing for free for a charity for Katrina victims, and I'll be incorporating your lesson on the Knight's Tour as a publicity stunt for the local chess club to try and sell more tickets.

I've gotten to the point where I can do it without seeing a board and just doing it in my head, so I'll have several of the local chess experts do their best first while looking at a board (and hey, if they make it, they are chess experts, after all. No big wupp.)

I'll then be blindfolded and do the Knight's Tour with no board to look at, and surrounded by chess club members who will make sure I am not using a crib sheet.

This should be good. This should be so freaking good. Afterwards, donations will be collected, and tickets to my charity show will be sold.

Thank you so much! I couldn't have done it without you!

You're welcome! While I put this site together because it covers my own particular interests, it's nice to hear that others are not only using the information on here, but making a difference with it, as well!
