Gambito #382

Gambito #382   August Super Gambito   8/02/08

Nice turnout today of 34 players. We lost a few regulars to the US Open in Dallas. Enrico Sevillano is there and probably John Bryant, plus Jessica Lauser and I am sure there were others too.

In our event, there were 20 players in the Open Section and 14 in the Reserves. Bruce Baker took the day off, possibly resting up for the big San Diego County Championships next weekend, which are being held here at our club.
