I wrote a book that outlines the following things about KY Chess:

(1) Scholastic tournaments throughout KY (not just Louisville)
(2) Adult tournaments throughout KY
(3) Weekly/Monthly chess clubs and their basic info
(4) Chess League information (JCPS league, BCPS league, King of Kings, etc...)
(5) Simul information (I will be doing Simuls around town with people so I put info in about that)
(6) Useful Kentucky chess websites for more information
(7) The Kentucky Chess Hall of Fame is in there (I also included the KCA website and informed the reader where the info came from)

In the future, the book will have much more information. I will be distributing free copies as soon as I get them. My hope is to distribute them this Saturday at our "Free USCF Membership Tournament" where we pay each participant's USCF membership. However, if I do not get them on time then I will distribute them at the Halloween Tournament.

Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Kentucky-Chess-Guidebook-Season-Guidebooks/dp/1502546035/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1412175417&sr=8-1&keywords=Kentucky+Chess+Guidebook

If you want a copy it is like $6 bucks but the goal of this book really isn't to sell it. I bought 200 copies personally to distribute for free.

Was I the first to purchase it? I expect it hand delivered with a bow. The bow should be on you and not the book.

Very impressive book!

This was a lot bolder of a project than I thought you would produce. I will have to start taking you more serious now.
