Message from our "IDOL" - GM Viswanathan Anand
Dear Mr. Derrick V. Perera

During one of our usual Sunday surfing sessions we came across your site. I was extremely happy to hear about the Vishy Anand Chess Club and it's activities. The site also mentioned that the Club will be visiting Germany in October. I do hope at some point I will interact with it's members. In the meantime I hope you keep enjoying playing.

I wish the club all the best.

Vishy Anand
