      Hello everyone!

      We're very excited to host a Spring edition of the Lake Huron ProAm, and are eager to build on the success of our inaugural event this past Fall. Hosting a tournament in Port Elgin provided a nice little boost in participation at our local chess club, and all of the local/area players have indicated a desire to play again at the Spring tournament.

      If you have any questions about the event or the area, feel free to post them here, or email me at!
