We are passing along information from the Westchester Chess Club:
We are saddened by the loss of our friend Joe and extend our condolences to family and friends.
The WCC will host a memorial tournament in Joe’s honor. Thanks to Lou Saltaformaggio for the idea and the name – the Joe Guads. It will be G/75;d5 starting in January (Andre is finishing up the winter schedule). There will be a modest entry fee which will go towards a donation to support chess for underprivileged children and students (suggestions welcome!). The tournament is open to members from other clubs and I will do my best to get the word out, but please feel free to forward this to friends of Joe’s. Space in the church is limited to about 40 people. First round will be January 3rd. Let me know if you are interested. Also, please feel free to visit and participate in the WCC, and please let me know if you would like me to add you to my email list. Hope to see you soon.
You can go to that page to look up the schedule (2019 tournaments not posted yet), as well as details on where the club meets and who to contact for more information.
