Knoxville tournament, brief report

Five Lexington club members played in the Knoxville tournament June 16 and 17.

Here are the members' results.
Div 3:
Betty King, fourth place, 9-6, +328
Margaret Yoder, eighth place, 8-7,  +269
Victoria Bledsoe, 11 place, 7-8, +323

Div 1:
Will Scott, second place, 10-4-1, +619
Eric Yoder, 13th place, 6-9, -406

In addition to her fourth-place prize, Betty won the Howard Prichard/Millicent King award, given to the player in Division 3 who finishes highest above his or her seed. The prize was $100 and a copy of "Bob's Bible."

Lexington club members returned with a net gain of 44 rating points. Woohoo!

Other Kentucky players were Mark Edward Owens of the Pikeville area in Division 1, who finished 6-9, -226, and Carrie Petrocelli, who lives west of Louisville and was in her first tournament. She finished 1-14, a tough beginning, but she was lauded for handling her struggles graciously. We're hoping to see her and her husband, who also plays, at our club meetings occasionally.

Thanks for the report, Will. I wish I could have been there, but I'm glad our club (and Kentucky in general) was well-represented regardless.
