Bill Murray

Personally, my first encounter of Bill Murray was not from Bill Murray, but actually the chess clock of Bill Murray.  You see, I was a sub adult with a sub 1000 rating when I played my first MN Open.  -Does anyone else remember that Thunderbird Hotel?-  I was awestruck.  Not only playing in the same room as grown men, but best players in the State.  I found myself observing games from the higher boards.  A very fond memory of mine was this chess clock I kept seeing.  Much of the back was taped up, and it read “MURRAY”.  I could see it from across the playing hall.  When I was done with my game, I made it a point to find the “MURRAY” clock and observe that game for a little while.
That.  Sure.  Takes.  Me.  Back.

Bill still has the clock, and is the author of Chess Chatter, which can be found on the Chess Castle page.  Bill does a wonderful job of keeping people plugged in with the chess community.    Look to Chess Chatter as a source of what is going on at the Castle and many other chess kibitz.
