At our first club tournament member Justin Werstler emerged victorious, boasting a clean sweep of all his boards. This made Justin our first Our Friendly Chess Club champion.
That was the cool part. The next part really sucks.
Justin recently passed after what appears to be an epileptic seizure. His body was laid to rest at Greentown Cemetary on July 3rd, 2021.
As we continue to mourn the loss of the man who was a valued friend, brother, son, uncle, cousin, and member, we will not be meeting as a club this month.
Justin will be sorely missed. We need to take some time to grieve.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP HIS FAMILY…
