There won’t be a meeting Saturday at the Synagogue due to the Bloomington Open this weekend. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday. Have a good weekend!
We will be having a G/15 d/5 tournament starting at 7:00. The cost to play is $3 for members and $5 for non-members with some small cash prizes.
First off we would like to thank Jack Fulsom, Chris Shomenta, and Roy Knuth for their contributions in their former positions. These members volunteered when the club was in desperate need of leadership and we are all very grateful. All of the new officers ran for their current positions unopposed. Dennis Mays is the new President of the RCC/MCCC with the slogan “a chicken in every pot”. “A car in every garage” might be for his re-election term! The following positions were also filled:
Vice President – Mitch Mast
Treasurer – Jack Fulsom
Secretary – Matt Jensen
Scholastic Representative – Maor Leker Locker

Gold Division – The Rochester Ultimates lost another close match 2.5-1.5 and are currently in 7th place. Rob Newshutz is leading the team with 1.5 points so far.
Silver Division – Rochester B2 or not B2 won 3.5-1.5 again and are sitting in first place! Kevin Gaustad, Ralph Townsend and Maor Leker Locker are all a perfect 2/2 so far and Roy Truelson has 2 draws against experts on board 1.
Bronze Division – The Rochester Knights lost to the 2nd highest rated team in the division. The knights are currently in 6th place with Dennis Mays and Jack Fulsom both scoring 1.5/2 so far!
New Game Added
On the games page there is a new added game from one of the Lourdes Chess Camps hosted by Dennis Mays and Matt Jensen. Dennis has added notes throughout the game and the endgame is very instructive. Check it out!
