November Quads

We had a turn-out of 20 players last night with 16 joining the line-up for the November Quads. A warm welcome to new club member Brian W. returning to rated play for the first time since the early 1990s. Carrying a USCF rating of 1802, Brian dusted any rust off quickly with a nice win against Brad.

First Round Results

Nam    1   Roger   0
Frank 1/2  Duy     1/2

Dang    0   Khoa    1
Patrick  1  Jonathan  0

Brian     1   Brad    0
Anthony 1  Steve   0

Lee        0   Emily   1
Huy        1   Sarah  0

The players out were Herb, Jim, John E. and Kaitlyn.

Herb and Jim played a rated g/60 match while John E. and Kaitlyn played skittles.

Next week we should have John T. back with us so perhaps we can have a couple of rated matches for those who desire.

I would like to hear any ideas to help promote the club. With the new meeting room we can expand freely and any increased membership means new opponent opportunities. Anybody out there with skills they can volunteer for designing flyers or brochures to post at the Library?

Special Note: There is an open chess tournament on Saturday, November 14th at the Cactus Elementary School in Round Rock, Texas. 4-SS with G/45 time control 1st round beginning at 9:30 (regristration 8:30-9:00). EF: $25 in advance, cash prizes. See this address for details (or click on Austin Chess Tournaments link on the right of this screen):

I encourage you to support any and all local chess events. Let's keep building our local chess community as this will increase playing opportunities and fun competition for all of us!
