                      Taking in more entries, many returning payers from Bob and Gord Sept 24, cool!
                      Entry is $50 until Monday 28th. Then it goes up to $60. We are at about mid 30s in entry numbers, can we get above our last tourney of 57 players?

                          Time ticking to the early bird entry fee of $50 if I receive it by 11:59pm tonight. If this is your first time to tournament chess, clocks, boards and sets are provided.
