2008 Chess Club Championship, Round 2

Here is the Retired Pawn during his second round game. If you look back by the vending machine, you will find me wearing a yellow shirt at board 7. One of the brighter spots of not moving off the last board is the proximity of the coffee Enjoy the following annotated game. Thanks.

The 2008 Chess Club Championship, Round 1

I had hopes of coming away this year as my class champion, but this year they changed the format at the last minute, thereby making me play against much higher rated oponents. I never gave up, nevertheless, I lost in each round. I let Mr. Fritz analyze my games. In some of the games I added anotations. Someone please help me!!!!

Upper Iowa University...Dean's List of Scholars

I made the Dean's list for the Spring session. Most of my time is spent studying and doing class projects; leaving little time for my chess activities. I am proud of myself for this showing because I was out of a classroom for 28 years and I naturally worried how I would perform academically. Not to worry, I have a 4.0 GPA as I enter my Senior year. Just think, only 30 credit hours to graduation.
