Club Updates:

Thank you to Robert Dalton:
Running this club is a team effort. Robert Dalton reminded me last week about rebooking the community room we play in for 2023. With the holidays and everything else going on it completely slipped my mind since the township doesn't remind you to renew the space. Without his reminder and his hard work to find the form from last year, there is a large chance we may have been homeless or would have had to change our date and time. Thank you, Rob. You're the club Secretary of the year! :)

Board Meeting January 12th.
There will be a board meeting on January 12th, 2023. It will go over the operations of the club for 2023.

Member Dues for 2023
I am currently sick and will not be at the club this Thursday. If possible please delay giving your dues until the following week. If you need to give your dues this week for one reason or another, please hand membership dues to VP Jim Carter to hold onto. Thank you!

Quad 1 - 2 way tie between Thomas Sean Colure and Dylan Clark with 2 points

Quad 2 - 3 way tie between Matt Iacoviello, Armandas Ledas, & Paul Kolojeski with 2 points.

Quad 3 - John Basily went undefeated and won with 3 points.

Congratulations to all of the winners!

Thank you everyone for an amazing 2022 and I can't wait to see what 2023 brings to the Toms River Chess Club!

Thank you,

Nick Carlson
