The Shipping News

What is it about chess and cruise ships? First there were the chess cruises with Susan Polgar, Larry Christiansen, et. al. and now this:

America's Foundation for Chess (AF4C) today announced that, together with Holland America Line, it will be hosting an exclusive luncheon on June 11 aboard the ms Westerdam, which will be docked at the Port of Seattle. Attending this first-time-ever event as a guest speaker will be David McEnulty, whose success in teaching inner-city kids chess inspired the A&E movie 'Knights of the South Bronx.' Guests will also witness a blindfolded grandmaster chess match and savor a five-star meal.
