The Westfield Chess Club is honoring long-time member Ernesto Labate by holding a Grand Prix tournament on November 4th (details below) but I've been told that there have been just 6 entries so far.
There is a guaranteed $2000 prize fund & the event cannot be cancelled. So, the hosts are going to be in the red if 2 dozen additional players don't sign up. Please consider doing so.
