This weekend at the biggest annual scholastic chess tournament in the United States, the Elementary School National Championships, I was honored to interview US Chess Federation (USCF) Executive Director Carol Meyer, and the President of the US Chess Board of Directors, Mike Hoffpauir. They both devote a big part of their lives to chess, and I think you will enjoy it as:
Carol and Mike both talk about their backgrounds and share how they became involved with the USCF
Carol discusses her vision for the USCF and discloses short-term and long-term plans that the organization is undertaking
Carol and Mike discuss the role that the USCF plays with an American in the upcoming World Chess Championship
Mike and Carol discuss some changes that they are implementing at future scholastic tournaments in light of a recent controversy. We also got some book recommendations and discussed the overall health of the USCF. Thanks to Carol and Mike for an insightful and fun interview.
