Report on the East Conn Chess Open held March 11 in Coventry. 

Joe Bihlmeyer won with a perfect 3-0 score. Gary Cote from 
Norwich won 2nd place with 2 wins and a draw. Nine players 
came to play in the 3 round Swiss. 

Rob Roy served as houseman for rounds 2 and 3, winning both 
games. Thanks to Elizabeth who allowed us into her home 
and cooked us ziti and meatballs.
 
Thanks to assistant host Mark Denihan, who did many various 
tasks all day long. Thanks to those who made voluntary 
contributions towards the lunch food. The rounds progress 
better when players don't need to leave to fetch lunch.
 
We had 3 players from the New Britain Chess Club, 2 players 
from the Norwich Chess Club, and 4 new players. 

Thanks to each of the players for driving in to play in 
my tournament. Next tourney in Coventry is May 6, the
