Regency Chess at the Rio 2016 Olympics
Several months ago we had a call from a film production company in Vancouver. At 2 p.m. they requested 20 chess sets and 20 chess clocks for a tv commercial shoot to arrive by 9 a.m. We shipped overnight by UPS and they arrived promptly. Then they requested another 10 sets and clocks which were shipped for the next morning.
We have been glued to the TV watching the games on CBC and NBC. Finally the commercial aired Thursday, August 18th on NBC – right after the 200m final with Usain Bolt’s historic victory with Canadian Andre DeGrasse in the silver medal position. Go Team Canada!
