This and that..

It looks like I will be able to play in the North American Open, after an 11 year break. In 1997 I scored 2.5/5.0 in the U1800 section.

I started coaching my son's scholastic chess team on a volunteer basis. I am enjoying the experience especially since I have a very enthusiastic group.(7 new USCF members)

We play in our 3rd tournament tomorrow. We placed 3rd in our very first, and tied for 4th the second time around.
