Tournaments: Our club held another successful USCF-rated tournament during last Saturday’s club meeting. Four of our club’s Adult members; Mark Confer, Gary Inch, Ray Sciacca, and David Wharton, along with one of our Youth members, Ross Mahler, and a long-time club supporter who does not live locally, Joe Mucerino, competed in a three round Swiss format tournament. Congratulations to Joe Mucerino, a USCF Candidate Master, for taking 1st place with a perfect score of 3-0. Here are some photos: http://www.williamsportchessclub.org/?page_id=624
