First Steps ...

During the Liberty Bell Open of 2011, I was very fortunate to have two very young and promising players participating in the lower sections. One of my students drew the attention of the other 9 and 10 year old participants by not just being 5 years old and in Pre-K, but by his ability to keep score of his games, as is required by both the rules as well as all of my students, regardless of age.
"This kid is writing down his moves!" one such young fellow remarked to another as the players were settling into the 6th, and penultimate round.
"It's as easy as walking." replied the 5-year old.

I felt inspired by the need to chime in at this point.
"Fortunately, there are electronic wheelchairs available now called Monroi devices... and there is no longer any need to know the names of these 64 life-long friends that you will need to analyse deeply."
