David Herscovici won first place of the "Venus de Milo" tournament held April 8 in Coventry with a perfect 3-0 score.

A 3-way tie for 2nd: Nelson CastanedaJoe Bihlmeyer, and Roger Bessette each finished with 2-1 scores.

We wish to thank Mark Denihan, a player from our backgammon program, who volunteered work all day long. Rob Roy was TD.

Several drenching rainstorms in the prior week, together with the spring thaw, caused the basement to get an inch of water.

Luckily, the tournament room was on high ground and thus not affected. The garage got emptied out and became the skittles room.

We usually provide a complimentary lunch, but with all the work to remove 12 wet rugs and cleaning out the garage, we had no time to prepare.

We all chipped in and got pizza from the new "Wicked Slice" in Coventry. The pizza won high approval so we may do this at future events.

April 22 is  STORRS CENTER USCF OPEN HOUSE  a free USCF-Rated tournament near the UConn campus in Storrs.

May 6 is  CHESS CENTER FIRST ANNIV OPEN  A USCF-Rated tournament in Coventry. It celebrates our one-year anniversary since opening in May of last year.
