Fellow BCF Players,

As the city of Cambridge, like all of New England, finally started to see spring-like temperatures, 36 players gathered at BCF for a violent-sounding TORNADO! Fortunately there was no wind-driven destruction of anything other than my chess-player ego at being very nicely butt-kicked by Ruohan Yin in a side game. (The game score is preserved complete if anyone wants to see it.) The weather stayed calm and warm outside while we battled over the chessboards inside.
A shout-out to our visitor from FL Jordan Applebaum who came in a three-way tie for second place in the U1800 Section. We get players from a long way around.
Open: Nithin Kavi
U1800: Henry He
MACA will be hosting the MA Girls Challenge as a follow-up to our much-touted MA Girls Championship on Sunday 5/20. This special event will be combined with our normal monthly Scholastic. Details are on the Calendar.
See you over the board.
