Congratulations to Alex Moiseyev, who has won this state title every year beginning in 2003 (and also won this tournament three additional times prior as a PA resident). It was real good to see Joseph Margolin, Kim Willis, and Joe Moore attend, as they all had to come from far away. $1,000 in prizes were awarded, with $360 going to first place. Special thanks to Joe LoConti, and Joe McDaniel who contributed heavily to prize fund, Mark Sokolovsky, Richard Beckwith, and Alan Millhone to providing the meeting room, and to Joe LoConti & Richard Beckwith with offering two hotel rooms. Kim Willis handled photography and prepared a CD (similar to what she made available in Branson).
