Myself, Allen Becker, and Jim Coons will be playing in the Veterans, while Andrew will be playing in the Junior Open.

Who else is going to Oshkosh?

Should be a nice tournament!

All those good players under age 21can't play in the Veterans. That is a big relief to the old guys. Good Luck "old guys".

Robin said...

Yes, us old guys need all the help we can get!:)

Any reports form Oshkosh?

In the Vets, Parker was on Board 1 in Rd 3, probably going to be 3-0. Becker drew with Wagner on Board 2, so I'm 2.5/3. Other players from the club are Robin (2/3), Jim Coons (1.5/3), Hayes (W/D after Rd 1).

In the Junior, Andrew is 5th seed, and is 3/3 (five people have perfect scores going into Round 4).

More reports tomorrow...long tough day (for the old geezers here!).

Congratulations to Dusan Tutush for winning the tournament. I guess my draw with Dusan in round 2 did not slow him down!:)

And congratulations to Wade for winning the “Old Man” trophy!:) I was on my way to winning it, but got stopped by Richard Martin in round 5.
