NEW ! District 17 has developed a online player survey for collecting feedback about regional tournaments. Darwin Afdahl, D17 President, urges you to "give us a grade" and let us know how we can improve our tournaments. The survey takes 5 minutes. Click here to pop up the survey, which can also be found as a submenu under "Administration" tab. Contact John Grossmann at Blackstone.email@example.com if you have any problems with the process.Oct 15, 2014

Gerald Georges (El Paso Unit 159) became a Platinum Life Master at the Pikes Peak Regional! Going into Sunday’s Swiss Team, he needed a little more than six points to reach 10,000 masterpoints.
His team (partner Gary Sawyer, Alto,NM, and En Hay paired with Allen Kane of Highlands Ranch, CO) came in fifth overall and earned 9.53 MPs – more than enough.
