Longtime Syracuse Go Club member Milton Sack 15k pre-celebrated his 100th birthday four months early by winning the one game he played (he drove to the tournament himself and then left after one round to attend a memorial service).

Each player was able to select a new go book to take home at the end of the day, all provided to the tournament at a discount by Slate and Shell. Allen Noe once again served as tournament director, and organizer Richard Moseson’s wife Chris made the tournament’s traditional problem cake (black to play).
