I would like to thank every person in the Garden State Chess League for sacrificing their time and efforts to support, promote and participate in this league for the benefit of all.

In this, our second season playing with all of you good people here in the Garden State it was good to meet you all and visit your facilities.

It is also wonderful that you have honored extraordinary people and chess players like Edgar McCormick and Steve Ferrero by naming the East and West divisions after them.

We do wish to thank all the chess club's that have made it all possible in the spirit of friendly competition and we look forward to the next season of the Garden State Chess League.

Good chess to you in all you do!
