Members and Friends,
I’m just getting caught up with new participants and events at the club while “trying” to help Will Thrash populate our new web site which is currently under construction. So, here’s the latest news patched together. If I am repeating past updates, then so be it.
1. There are a bunch of folks who have arrived at club for the first time and others who have returned after a long hiatus. Returning players are Mike Bacon, Greg Hollingsworth and Antonio Nelson. Unfortunately, school is starting back up so Mike will be out of touch for a while. Antonio returns after an absence of about three years! He’ll be going back on night shift so we’ll miss him for a month or two.
2. We welcome new players Robert Roberts, Paul Fears and Ben Markum.
3. Last club saw 14 players in the nightly G15 tournament. I’ll try to remember to announce who comes out on top in a more timely fashion. Tom Trivers and I played two match games which, for me, was very instructive. So, total, we had 16 participants.
4. Jim Kade, Ralph Boston, Bethel Hendricks and Billy Robinson have hitting the tournament circuit. The Georgia Open is next in their sights.
5. As reported earlier, Phil Gardner now resides at Morning Point on Shallowford Road. Stop by and play some chess with him if you have the opportunity. Morning Point’s number is 296-9700. Remember to avoid meal time hours.
All for now.
