Chess club formed locally

By ALLAN TINKER
As many others before him, Brian Tinker developed a lifelong passion at an early age, which was fostered by his experiences in school in Los Gatos, California.
Tinker’s first teacher at age seven was his father, Arthur Tinker, who now lives in Bend, Oregon. His father was a tough competitor, who had no pity for mistakes made by his young chess student.
When he finally was able to beat his father at chess at age 16, Tinker considered it quite an accomplishment.
