Though summer is usually more sparsely attended (with members taking vacations or catching up on household chores), we have had some good crowds of late, including several strong players (such as NJ State Champion Tom Bartell). If only we could get the masters and experts to talk more about chess than the politics of oil in the Middle East... I'll have to bring the electronic demo board next time to help us focus.

Hey, isn't that Mike Wojcio in the golf hat
playing the same bad opening he lost with last week
against club president Joe Demetrick?
