Sorry for the tardiness of the newsletter. I have been moving this weekend and just had an opportunity to finish up this month's edition.


Please make sure to send your announcements and tournament results to me at shadypage@att.net for inclusion in the GCC circuit. If you have anything you would like to see added/included in the newsletter send me an email and I will see what I can do. Otherwise, you guys are at my mercy and whims. Until next month.
