Monday December 13, 2010

Despite dire weather warnings, “29 players fearlessly came to the December 11 Chicago Winter Tournament,” reports TD Bob Barber. “New players from Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and even Romania, by way of Northern Ireland,” turned out. “Noticeably absent was Rich Brown from Madison, WI, who chose cautiously to stay at home,” Barber notes. Tengxiao Yang 5d took first place in the dan division. Other results: 1st Place High Kyu:  ROHDE, David, 5k; 1st Place Low Kyu:  MARTINEZ ORTEGA, Jorge, 9k; 2nd Place Low Kyu:  BOYLAND, Peter, 10k. “This was the first AGA tournament for Yang and Boyland,” says Barber. “We hope to see a lot more of them in the future.”
