Meetings: We will have our regular open play meeting this Saturday, starting at 10:00 a.m.

Tournaments: 
We had another good turn-out for the USCF-rated, quad-style tournament last Saturday. Competing in the Youth quad were Makayla Gallegos, Caleb Kight, Jesse Kight and Ross Mahler (this was Ross’s first USCF-rated tournament). Congratulations to all the Youth players and “Well Done” to Caleb for his 1st place finish with a score of 2.5. In the Adult quad were Alfredo Blas, Mark Confer, Tony Maurer and Ted Sneshkoff (visiting us from the Wellsboro Chess Club). Alfredo Blas took home the 1st place trophy with a perfect score of 3-0. Here’s a link to photos from the tournament (thanks Gary Inch): http://williamsportchessclub.org/?page_id=367
