Beau Mueller, webmaster for Hawaii Chess, sent an email announcing the 2015 Hawaii Chess Festival. The last time a big chess event was held in Hawaii was the 1998 US Masters/US Open.
Suddenly, thoughts of a comeback fill my head. Yesterday, I ordered the 4th edition of Jeremy Silman's How To Reassess Your Chess. I broke out the instruction manual for my Chronos chess clock and figured out how to program Game/120 + 5 second delay, the time control to be used in the Under 2000 section. In the near future, I plan to join chess.com to see how much rust built up from 10 years of inactivity. It's starting to get serious.
