  1. Our first try on the clinic went well. We had two sessions of four players each. (Suathua, Tetsuro, Percy, Kevin, Aldo, Jane, Manin,and Paul) After the clinic, coach Jim and I discussed a little bit about how the clinic can be more effective so that players may get the most out of the clinic. He felt that four people in a session were too many. Therefore, he recommended that we have two players in a session in the future. In addition, we will also try to group people of similar level in the same session. There will be three one-hour sessions per week. We can only accommodate 6 people per week. The recommended donation will be $10 per session per person. If you are interested, please send an email to me. (bay_tt@yahoo.com) I will keep a signup list. First-time players will have the higher priority. Here is the schedule for the three sessions:

    First session: 2:15 - 3:15
    Second session: 3:25 - 4:25
    Third session: 4:30 - 5:30


  2. Ming Zhang won this week's seven-player round robin. He only dropped one game to Gary Alcares throughout the round robin. The detail results will be up soon.
