I met Michael A. Thomas in 1982 at the Laurel Colonial Chess Corner in Laurel, Maryland. At that time I was just a teenager discovering the world of organized chess, and Mike was one of the club's officers. I joined the club soon after, and I also joined one of the club's DC Chess League teams. Mike was the club's director of teams, and one of his responsibilities was finding a team captain for each of the club's teams. In 1984 Mike asked me if I would serve as team captain for one of the club's teams, and I said yes. Mike eventually became one of my closest friends. We spent many evenings and Sundays together with friends, eating pizza, watching the Washington Redskins (they were a good team back in those days) and playing a wide variety of games. Mike was a board game enthusiast. He enjoyed any board game that involved strategy and long term planning.
