Congratulations Dave, from all of us.

PS I did want to congratulate you on breaking the 2500 barrier - I knew that was a goal you had and feel like it really is a great accomplishment. I should say I didn't track your progress and it was Paul MacIntyre who drew my attention to your result and suggested the post --you've got many folks rooting for you.


See details about the tournament below, from the wonderful news column George Mirijanian does for MACA.
