Blizzard Challenge...RESULTS...

First we would like to give a Huge Thanks to “SONWIL” Distribution, and Mr. P. Wilson, for sponsoring such a wonderful and successful chess tournament this past Saturday. The “Blizzard Challenge” as it was called brought together players from near and far; as far as Erie PA, all 59 players came to do battle and see who had the better chess teams.
The USCF affiliate “QueensKnight Scholastic Chess” organized the players into 5 sections. The scholastic players which formed a K-5, K-8, and a K-12 grouping formed their respective teams in each section. The other two sections were a rated “Open” section and an “Unrated Adult” section.
The results were as follows:
