Forty players gathered on January 27, 2018 to compete in our first QSS (Quarterly Saturday Series) tournament of 2018. This was also the first AR Grand Prix tournament for the year.
I had a family emergency and wasn’t about to make it. Stephen Paulson graciously agreed to TD the event.
One thing I’m extremely happy about is we had 13 unrated players play in their first tournament! This is great for Arkansas chess and I hope the trend would continue. Thanks for everyone who came out and I hope to see you all again in May!
