April 16, 2011 – Normal April Open

While there was a smaller than expected turnout, we did have a wonderful place to play four rounds of rated chess!  Eleven players played seventeen games, and we did have a good time.  The players decided that we would forego the prize structure, but Jeff Smith did buy pizza for lunch!  Thanks Jeff and Northbridge Baptist Church!

Crosstable from USCF (Not in tiebreak order) follows.
