Mentions of Evelyn and Gary Koshnitsky from the Sunday Mail columns – from 1986 ->

Many of us were very fortunate to have known Evelyn and Gary for much of our lives and many of the following posts should trigger memories of all that they did to help chess here. These are extracts from the chess columns published in the Sunday mail over the decades and they should give a sense of what was happening back then and the part played by the Koshs back then – it was simply huge.
