    President.s MessagePresident's Message, 611104Logansport was again the site of the Vano-Brooks ChaIlenge Match, with DennisMonokroussos prevailing over title holderseen here accepting theplaque and-needlessto say, the

    winner'scheck! Itwas apleasure towitness thisexciting, 5-game battle between the two topplayers in Indiana. Dennis has generouslycontributed a fuIl report, with a detailedanalysis of the second match game (see page5 in this issue).The 2004 State Championship is in the finalstages of planning and board approval. Wearemaking several improvements, increasingprize funds and grand prix points; . Thetournament will be held in the same roomlocations at the Indiana Convention Centerand RCA Domewe occupied last year. If youhaven't played in the state championship inthe past couple of years you don't know whatyou have missed!. The downtown location inthe heart in Indiana is ideal for this historical,premier Indiana chess event of the year, withample parking across the street and a plethoraof fast food places in the nearby CircleCenter Mall..The annual meeting of members is heldbetween rounds on the second day. It isimportant that you attend; last year, besidethe election of officers, we debated andapproved a revised membership duesstructure and agreed to launch the ISCAtour; you can find the details on our website, Dave Frey hasdevoted many hours to getting the tour upand running, even including games played onthe Internet Chess Club.. The project is nowin the final testing stages, while Dave worksout the bugs and developing reports that wiIlbe viewable on the web site. We are going toset the official start date for the 2005 ISCAtour at July 1st, 2004 and it will continue tiIlthe end of June 2005with awards being givenat the 2005 state championship to thewinners. More tour news will be provided inthe September issue of Chess In Indiana,which wiIl be before the annual meeting.Let 's give Dave a big thank you for his workon the web site -and for holding his firsttourney in Lebanon, as a newly-fledgedTournament Director!.Gary J Fox, ISCA

InMarch, this very column suggested membersvisit ISCA's website at Sorry,it's as Dave Frey gentlypointed out to me after spotting mymistake.Diagrams - FinaIly I've found a way togenerate better diagrams - similar to thosefound in just about every book or majormagazine (rather than the bitmap images thatprevious issues of ClI include) - that can betransmitted electronically to our publisher'sdigital printing machinery. I got help fromMig (chess journalist Michael Greengard)who was interested in my "Play-it-Forward"pages and did his best to show me how easyit was to generate diagrams in HTML via aweb page. Hmmm. Then US ChessLife editorKalev Pehme told me that Chess Life doesn'tuse MS Word (which I use to produce ClI)but more sophisticated, expensive, softwarecaIled "Quark Express 6." Their softwarehelps them move diagrams around in a way Ican't (unless I revert to bitmap images). ButKalev did suggest a couple of tricks I am stiIlworking on....FinaIly, I had an enjoyable exchange ofemails with Frederic Friedel of ChessBase.Long and the short of it, Frederic noted thatFritz 4 diagrams can be copied to Word andare the type you see in this issue. I am veryappreciative for the quick, friendly andhelpful responses I received from theseleaders in the chess community.1M John Donaldson emailed Joe Riegseckerasking for help in obtaining data on a BobbyFischer simul held in Indianapolis on May21, 1964. John found the J.G.WhiteCoIlection in Cleveland for Indiana chessmagazines in that period to no avail. Joepassed word around and Roger Blaine said hemight have old copies buried in boxes
