RON POWIS

Post by Ken Norman » Fri Jun 28, 2013 4:11 pm

I see on the Keverel Chess Website that Ron Powis died on 11st June 2013 aged 87.

He will be best remembered for running the Cotswold Congress.

What about the Gloucester site? I did him a nice little obituary too, well actually his clubmate did the obituary, but still....
Lose one queen and it is a disaster, Lose 1000 queens and it is just a statistic.

Joey,

perhaps you could add a link here?

I played Ron many times in the North Glos League. He did a lot of good work for chess.

I never met him myself, but he was talked about highly by local players and it felt like the right thing for him to get a mention on the site.
