Tournament News

Watch for signs and announcements today about a special reception Tuesday evening for people staying at the Fairmont this week!   Expect to see a snack bar set up outside the main playing area towards the end of the morning session (although there are several other places to get well fed in the Fairmont).

Juggling several tournaments and Bulletins in the past few weeks has left me little time to get the Kirkwood Standings updated but this will get done and posted laster this week.
