WHAT ABOUT THE OCQ?

     Frank Berry's long running "Oklahoma Chess Quarterly" (print edition) is now being replaced by the "Oklahoma Chess Monthly" (OCM) published online which will have the same style of articles — plus many new features not possible before such as links to websites for further info and online playable games.

     Many of you liked to collect and keep copies of OCQ -- and for you we will offer a bound annual printed collection of all OCM issues for your collecton or library archives.  More on this later.

"Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the tail and face the situation."
Frank Kim Berry (1945-2016)"
