I am directing a new tournament to start January 31.  The schedule is flexible!  Details are in the flyer quoted below.  Please pass this invitation on to those you know who might not be on this list.  All players are welcome, but only PGC members will be eligible for the “Champion” title.  All participants must register online, as described in the flyer.
