I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the 12th Holly Heisman Memorial! We had over 90 players, the most we have had when I have directed. We were also able to give out a large number of prizes and raise quite a bit of money for a great cause. If you failed to donate while at the event, but would still like to, you may do so at: https://www.philafound.org/tabid/160/Default.aspx?tp=SPEC&fn=Holly%20Heisman%20Memorial%20Fund

Quick Note from Ohio

Posted by joshuamiltonanderson on June 22, 2014 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (0)

According to Brandy, my wife, I don't blog enough.  So, I thought I would take a quick moment to do so.  As expected, June has been fairly quiet in a chess sence, but Juy and August look lively.  

1)  Tri-Bridges is doing well in the Mastermind League (see Links and Tri - Bridges CC tabs for more information.)  

2)  The FM Dov Gorman seminars are planned for Bryn Mawr on July 13 and July 20.  If you are betwe...

A Day with No Students

Posted by joshuamiltonanderson on May 21, 2014 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (3)

Tuesday is the day that I don't teach students.  I see at least 3 every other day of the week and though I could find more to fit into Tuesday, I choose to keep this day free so that I might work on other things.  What sort of things does a chess coach do on a day he doesn't coach?  Well, I am glad you asked.  

1.  I started the day corresponding with potential judges and book companies that might be involved with the Chess Journalists of America Awards.  T...

Dusting Off

         After almost 18 months, I thought I should write a new entry.  As has been discussed previously, I am not much of a blogger and one should not expect that to change.  Nonetheless, there have been many substantial changes and those are worth noting.  

1)  I am in the process of securing a business license.  This have numerous benefits that I hope visitors will notice over time.

2)  I have become the State ...

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I am looking forward to football games and an opportunity to spend a relaxing day with my wife. Several family members will be visiting tomorrow.

While wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a moment to congratulate the winners of the Greater Scholastic Chess Championship, held a couple of weeks ago. Aneesh Raparla, a student of mine, won the K-3 section. The K-6 section was won by Tate Pa...

It turns out, I am not a great blogger. For those I have had the pleasure of talking to, this may come as a surprise, it certainly did me. Perhaps I shouldn't be so suprised. My parents will tell you that I didn't talk much as a child, and of course, now, I am almost never quiet. There are two really great events that I got to be a part of recently that I should mention.

The first, is that I was invited to help out the Philadelphia Art Museum. They have a great new e...

Many people have been involved in each of these events and i just wanted to thank everyone as all of our great work couldn't have been done without them. That being said, I am looking forward to getting to spend a few weeks focusing on camps for Silver Knights and my private ...

I want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there, many of whom taught chess to their children. I know, because one of mine did. He taught me a great many other things as well and I appreciate them all. My other father, I didn't really know until recently as I was growing up in Pennsylvania and he was in the military and then worked for the state of California, but I am enjoying getting to know him better now.

I have no human children, but I do have quit...
