Hello
My Step-Father spoke of his involvement as a Secretary to the Detroit Chess Club. He made that statement to me in the 1960s. Is there any info on that statement.

I played back in the 60's in some city tournaments. I had the privedgled of playing and learning under on of the greatest players from Detroit Newell Banks. Back in the 40,s and 50,s he was the only living master at both chess and checkers. He held world records at playing blindfolded. Also held the worlds championship speed record at mixed play. having played 75 checkers and 25 chess games simultaneously. He held the record for blinfold speed record playing 62 games in 4 hours winning 61  and drawn one at an exibition at Cobo Hall.  He became a master at age 7.  He was a member of the Detroit Chess and Checker Club.

Hello Chess Club,

My name is Dayna White, I went to Duffield Elementary/Middle School where i met Mr. Fite. He was my 7th grade math teacher and he was just wonderful. I was wondering is he still affiliated with this chess site. If so make sure he contacts me I want to know how he's doing. && if any of you recognize me contact me also. 

I wish all of you good luck with you future && chess experiences though. 

Bye,

Dayna White

I had the pleasure to play and learn from Lennen "Binky" James.jr, Booker Thomas,Dwayne Riggins and NM John Brooks while i was in detroit.Some of the guy's still hang out at Hart Plaza downtown during the holidays to play and i really miss playing in detroit and my game has gotten sharper since then.If anyone is reading this note and if you know any of these guy's that i have mentioned have them to email me ASAP at carlsmith07542@yahoo.com and let me know how they are doing,ok? I really need to know and thank you very much because the club is doing a good thing in the Motor City.Right now i'm working on the "Budapest Gambit" and the ever complicated "Queen's Gambit Accepted and Decline and the Defence for them both which is teaching me to look over the board for the correct line to play.The book i started learning from is called "Chess Made Simple" by zondervan publications and it's for every player who's learning or forgot the basic fundamentals of the game,so keep in touch with me and "Keep On Pushing"!!!
