The tournament is again being sponsored by the wonderful folks at The Royce Funds, www.roycefunds.com, and the program is being managed by me, with a little(lot!) of help from our 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 camaraderie 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 again.

Note: we’d appreciate it if you could ‘spread the word’ or put this notice up in any chess or other appropriate venues you have access to. Thanks.

Love to all and see you soon! See details above.
Pat Bowyer & Family
