Breton at Morro Bay

Breton was a common fixture at our Saturday gatherings in Morro Bay and yearly tournaments. We appreciated his competitive play and gentle character. He lived up to the reputation for us chess players being "characters" by gently insisting on using his quality chess pieces and board as well as his sun protective clothing. He was instrumental in coordinating our last tournament venue in Templeton. He also put together the great write-up of the giant chess board in Morro Bay.

We are all very thankful for his impact on Central Coast Chess and our lives. He will be missed!
