Sept. 2015 Fundraiser.

Sept. 26, 2015.

 

Twenty one players showed their support for the 10th annual Grand Pacific Open by turning out for a five round active chess event on Saturday, September 26th.  $327 was raised to help offset expenses for the 2016 Grand Pacific Open to be held March 25th to 28th, 2016.

 

The tournament was hosted by Laith Bahjat, owner of the Cecilia Creek eatery in the Ramada Inn on Gorge Road.  A convention room in this hotel will be the site for the 2015 Jack Taylor Memorial, November 14th to 15th.

 

In addition to the local players, Frank O’Brien who has recently re-located to BC, made the trek from Nanoose Bay for the event and Levi Kirkby who was visiting friends in Victoria travelled here from Squamish.

 

First place was shared byo Jason Cao and Roger Patterson with 4.5 points over 5 rounds.  Their individual encounter was a fourth round draw.  Cliff Jones captured the Under 1700 trophy with 3.5 points followed by Bill Tate and Matthew Geng with 3 points each. The Under 1400 prize was taken by Fred Wissemann.  Second place in the U1400 was shared between Garth Edgar and Anthony Xu.

 

Li Geng donated his time as tournament director, a much appreciated show of support.  The event was organized by Roger Patterson and Paul Leblanc.
