DECEMBER CRUSH 2017

The December Crush Tournament housed the best behaved group of players I have ever directed over.  We are seeing more and more players take notation and using clocks.  Looks like the Nice List has been expanded/reinforced by another 79 names.    Please take some time to congratulate all our tournament participants as well as the top performers listed as follows:
