  1. I hope other media outlets give credit to Mr. Perry and the subsequent benefits which charity and chess offered to our community youth. We need more Tyler’s amd Orrin’s.
    As for myself I find great joy in teaching beginners the joy of chess. The widen eyes of confidence and smile of pride from a new “I can do it” attitude are great rewards in making a difference in a youngster’s life.
    God bless Tyler and Orrin.
