USCF Board and Scholastic Council speak out

The Scholastic Council requests that the following motion be read into the Executive Board minutes as soon as possible.

"The Scholastic Council unanimously concurs with the Executive Board censure motion of Sam Sloan based on his Tuesday, March 6, 2007 posting on the USCF Forum."

In addition, we plan to disseminate our motion with the text of the EB's motion to the State Scholastic Coordinators shortly.

Thank you,
Mike Nietman
USCF Scholastic Council Chair


Based on the outrageous and unconscionable post to the USCF Forum by Sam Sloan on Tuesday March 6, 2007, in which he ridiculed an organization which has for many years been an important USCF sponsor, and which post contained a link to a pornographic website, the Board of Directors of the United States Chess Federation hereby declares that we find that Mr. Sloan's action is unthinkable and inexcusable for a director of this organization and we hereby declare vehemently that we find his action deplorable and we censure Mr. Sloan and we publicly disavow disassociate ourselves individually, and this organization collectively, of from any of his actions in this matter.

Bill Goichberg
USCF President
