Note, this is purely a non-profit "Educational endeavour."  It is an experiment in learning.

Here is a list of needed items to initiate a new N.Belfast Chess Club.
The "Possible" Promotional video is below.

1. Funding?
Obviously from the government.
It is intended the membership will be free, the government will foot the bill for all the "starting up costs,"  provide the venue and pay all the utility bills.
Naturally the purpose is to encourage non chess players to become "competitive" players.

2. Premises?
The Old Crumlin Road jail would be ideal. Must check other locations as well.

3. A "Celebrity" aka "a useful idiot?"
It would be a great experiment to take some "Celebrity" who has absolutely NO knowledge of Chess and see what level of expertise they can reach in one year. From Zero to Hero, you could say.
UTV could make a "documentary" about it?
We could call this, "The Celebrity Chess Challenge."

Who could we get to fit in here? Must make a list.
Nuala McKeever?
Jake O`Kane?
Tim McGarry?
Dan Gordon?
Paddy Jenkins?

4. A reputable internationally renowned chess player?
Borislav Ivanov
The greatest "chess quote" of all time, "I practiced a lot with the computer, and after beating Rybka and Houdini by 10-0 each, I was absolutely sure that no-one was gonna stop me winning."   lol lol lol lol lol lol

5. Naturally we would expect the support of  the local political parties. After all, they are willing to fund all sorts of loony enterprises without batting an eyelid.

6. Also the local police would be expected to give their support.  They too are up to their necks in supporting lots of useless projects.

7. The endorsement of the Ulster Chess Union will be needed.

Ecc 12:12  And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
