Jamaican chess has experienced a surge of activity under the helm of Ian Wilkinson. Over the past couple of years, the Kingston attorney has been instrumental in promoting and organizing chess. His visibility also led to his role as FIDE delegate at the 2002 Chess Olympiad after which he wrote a very interesting story about his experience.

The Chess Drum posed a series of interview questions for the Kingston native and current President of the Jamaican Chess Federation. He produced comprehensive answers which amounted to  almost 20 pages of information. In "The Talking Drum" segment, we bring you large portions of the interview which will hopefully intrigue and inspire.
