the pinnacle of Indiana Chess, the time when all chess studies are proven. The Indiana State Chess Championship re-We are winding up the summer and moving into the State Championship over the next three months. Time flies when you are having Chess fun. In just a couple of weeks the Masters/Generations Championships will be at the start gates, held at the Logansport Mall. Compete in one of the Masters, Senior, Amateur, or Junior Champion-ship sections.  August will be time for the Indiana State Class Championships in Kokomo at the1166 UAW Local Union Hall. A very nice facility on the north side of the City. You will find a section of your own strength to compete in. U1200 Begin-ners can compete for Trophies or Cash Prizes depending on entry. Finally in September the Main Event, turns to Logansport for its historic 24th time. Glen Donley would be proud and Donley Chess Center members are Hon-ored to invite Indiana chess com-petitors from all over the state. Unsound Lines was not an idea of mine but is derived from Wick Deer when he was editor back in the late nineties. He published a couple of newsletters during his office. Due to the shortage of pub-lications over the past few months the Board passed a resolution to give discounted membership re-newals to select members depend-ing on expiration. I apologize for the tardiness of the magazine. I am not an Editor or Writer and the newsletter is my best effort.
