First Annual Holiday Open

On December 12-14, Duane Larkin along with the CCC and Alan Hodge (TD) delivered a great tournament, the 1st Annual Holiday Open. The Holiday Inn & Suites at Eastgate was nice and spacious and accommodating. Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati players came out and represented and competed. The organizers gave away nice door prizes: free t-shirts, free food vouchers for the hotel restaurant, free chess boards. They voluntarily increased the prize fund. Really nice.
