You're kidding, right? A $40 entry fee and you're giving plaques as prizes? Good luck with that.

Unfortunately, everything costs money including hotel, awards, and staff. Given that the senior chess community is so small, this is the best we can offer this year.

Hopefully with a better idea of the numbers we can expect, we can offer a lower entry fee. Plaques were the prizes most of the seniors questioned this summer wanted.
