We celebrated our 30th annual tournament with a cake. There were three of us present who were at the first tournament. Polly Moyer and Ruth Hamilton did not play that weekend, but assisted director Karen Merrill.  Keith Valentine did play then. He finished 6-5 in Division 3 with a new rating of 1275. Last weekend, he played in Division 1, winning 11 of 20 games, improving his rating to 1644.  This year, Polly and Ruth did data entry, while Rich Moyer directed and Scott Smith did everything else.
