HELP! Chess Sets Needed in Prisons

HELP! I have written to every prison in the State of Washington asking if they want any chess sets. A prison official called and said they can use forty sets. The second prison official that called said they can use forty sets. That’s the way it goes.

Forty tournament size solid plastic sets and forty vinyl boards cost $174 plus postage. Aha! Because of the new postal rates this is very expensive.

I would also like to send them chess books. I buy them wholesale from Dover Publisher.

My income is $1,000 per month and I get food stamps. I have very little money with which to buy sets and books.

Please send money for my Prison Chess Program. Make check payable to:


James Schroeder
3011 E. 9th St.
Apt. 15
Vancouver, WA 98661

phone (360) 258-9401

Please send chess books in good condition and chess clocks. The only magazines I can use are NEW IN CHESS and SQUARES.Please publicize. Post in Internet and at Clubs, Tournaments, etc. Get permission first.
