  1. Chess Players,

    So who from Buffalo is actually
    going to this since I am a bit
    confused as to what this is. Is it
    a purely scholastic event or is the
    same as the 'Team' event from last
    Year. I would go down an watch
    if someone lets me know who else
    is attending etc.,

    Thanks much.


  2. Vic,
    This is a scholastic event. The adult team tournament is March 21 in Sardinia. You are welcome to come and watch and bring some kids!

  3. Tom,

    Thanks, that cleared up my
    confusion - at least as far as
    this is concerned. :)
