New Jersey Open, September 3rd - 5th

I think the Kenilworth Chess Club should organize a contingent of players to attend this year's New Jersey Open, and we should talk about it this week. In any event, I hope to put together an article and game collection for our site featuring the players from our club (so save those game scores). I had been scouring the net searching for information on the tournament (always on Labor Day weekend), and finally found a listing at NJoyChess under "Upcoming Tournaments." I am sure that the organizers will not mind if I repeat the information here (since it is so impossible to find):
