---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The tournament is again being sponsored by the wonderful folks at Royce
& Associates, LLC, and the program is being managed by me, with a little(lot!) of
help from my (and Bruce's) friends.
 
If you don't play chess, come anyway!  Attending this event is like having a
party for Bruce, and we all know he sometimes traveled to chess events
more for the cameraderie than for the chess :-)
 
You can kibbitz, visit a bit, and share in that spirit of affection for Bruce that brings us all together.
I know he would be so pleased to see this event continue to grow.
 
Both Sonetta and I will be there for the entire tournament, and we look forward to seeing all of you.
