"Once again this will not be possible without the kind sponsors of Annaleen Bob of American Airlines, William & Tiffany Kennedy, Mark Pidal, and Yvienne Lawrence. They deserve a warm congratulations and a high-five for their generosity. Both R.J. and myself would like the world to know that the spirit of Christmas is alive, and angels do exist."
Young Ronnie was also the subject of a two-hour interview at Trinidad's Cable news Channel 3 detailing the importance of chess. Ronnie's story was a testament to the value of chess in assisting with critical thinking, reading skills, mathematical skills and team spirit. The show was hosted by "Gisselle" and also featured Lesley-ann Nelson and Akennie Murray, both of Kids Chess Club. Ronnie will be representing Trinidad and Tobago Chess Association at the Tournament and Kids Chess Club.
