Yes, I went way off in the wrong direction at first. There is a Fajr Cup chess tournament. "play fajr" so, 'play chess'... The last names "Welts" and "Weeks" show up fairly prominently in a chess search online. and, golly!, there's also a chess cipher, which it obviously wasn't, but I spent a fair amount of time looking in that direction. I am buffing my nails a little, though, by noting that I did spot the key right away. That's something, at least!
