The Oregon Open was an interesting event!  Not just for the outstanding games and great location... the OCF Organizational meeting was a big surprise!!!  Local teens Marcus Robinson and Taylor Bailey are now board members.  I couldn't attend the meeting, but rumor has it that Marcus was doing some major politicking during the giant bughouse tournament held just outside the playing hall.  With the even ratio of adults to kids, he was easily elected to the OCF board.  (Note to adults with political aspirations... you could learn a thing or two from Marcus!)  Taylor Bailey and Lisa Kudva will share the OCF Scholastic Director position with the idea that Taylor will take over in a year or two. 
 
I think it's an exciting change and am thrilled that my prediction that these kids are the future of chess in Oregon is happening earlier than expected.  I've got my fingers crossed that these two technology buffs can help the OCF finally join the rest of the world with a website that not only shares information, but also allows online registration.  With Mike Terrill's help, maybe they'll even get the bylaws updated and passed.  While I believe the fresh ideas and new membership will be a great thing for the organization, there's no question that Jerry Ramey helped set the stage with his work and devotion over the last several years.
 
One thing is for sure... we all need to give them our support and encouragement during this transition.
