The final round of the April tournament was held Wednesday the 24th.  Both games came down to close rook pawn end games.  In the game between David and Thomas both sides queened and Thomas's last pawn allowed him to eventually prevail.  In the game between Roger and Vince a check leading to a rook exchange allowed Roger to prevent Vince from promoting and eventually win.  Final tournament standing were Roger 3-0, Thomas 2-1, Vince 1-3 and David 0-3.

For May, there will be open play.  Please come and join us.

The founder of the Georgetown Chess Club, Herb Baumann,  has decided to step down from his position as club leader.  The club is continuing to meet and will be discussing its future path without Herb's continual guidance.  He has promised to come and play on some occasions but looks forwards to having Wednesday evenings free from this obligation.  Please come and join us for Chess at the Georgetown library at 5:30 on Wednesdays.
