*Vic Waterman received the upset prize for his first round victory over William Whitacre.

The Twin Falls Chess Club would like to thank all of the participants for making this one of the hardest fought and most exciting tourneys in recent history. The players were very evenly matched, as indicated when 21.67% of the games were drawn.

Dan Patton was elected president of the Idaho Chess Federation, and Richard Vandenburg was reelected secretary-treasurer.
