A special thanks goes to John Letterman, and the Boise State College Chess Association (now unofficially called the "BSU Chess Club") who sponsored this chess event. Thanks also goes to the players who were all very cooperative in supplying me with the scores of the games.

Yours very sincerely,
Jeffrey T. Roland (signed)

At the time of the "first printing" of the 1981 Boise Open Tournament Bulletin, game 14 between Les Colin and Stephanus Sentosa was not available. Jeff Roland worked diligently at that time to obtain the game so that history would have a complete record of the event. He succeeded in getting the game in early November, 1981 when Les Colin read the moves to him over the phone. All 28 games of the tournament are now being presented for the first time since no second printing was done of the bulletin back in 1981.
