October Quad Results

The October Quad results are in. The winners are Herb Baumann (3-0), Jonathan Manion (3-0), Khoa Nguyen (2.5-.5), Emily Nguyen (2.5-.5), and Huy Nguyen (2.5-.5).

Biggest ratings points gainers were Jonathan Manion up 87 points followed by his dad Steve Manion up 86 points. Well Done! Emily Nguyen gained 52 points followed by her father Nam Nguyen who added 42 points and moved up a class from "C" to "B". Herb Baumann improved 35 points and moved up a class from "B" to "A".

Action aplenty in the meat locker atmosphere of the friends room. Temps had to be in the 60s!

The new room is working out as far as space goes but the frigid temps last night were unbearable for some. Just a reminder to bring a jacket to the next meeting as we'll never know what to expect next as the kinks are worked out on the new meeting room and night.

Emily looks like she's all business at the board while Sarah and Dang compete in the background.
