Eric Horsboll (1943 – 2021)

Please CLICK HERE to read the obituary of a good friend of the club (and three time Dutchess County Chess Champion) who passed away earlier this month.

As mentioned in the obit, there is an Eric Horsboll Memorial Fund, part of which will go to support young chess players. From the fund page:

This fund will help keep his spirit alive by celebrating the following things he was passionate about: The Vassar Chadwick Chess Club through scholarships for young chess players (the club is already planning a Memorial Tournament in his name); a memorial bench in front of P&Gs Restaurant where we can sit and remember him, and memorial recognition on the New Paltz campus. Donations are very much appreciated, and additionally reflections of a story of remembrance would be great.  Reflections will be distributed electronically and at a memorial to be scheduled when we can gather together again, hopefully in the summer of fall.
