Congratulations to Peter, Stanley and Mark who represented Milpitas in the inter-club competition. Thanks to Surya at Concord club organized a great event and graciously posted the results. I think the rivalry is on. They will come to Milpitas for their revenge soon. We will need players to step up to defend Milpitas. (More rating divisions and date will be announced later.)

Also, thanks to our three players who kindly donated their prize to the new-table fund. ($30)
