RPI Rating Improvement: July 21, August 11.  ( June 20) A talented crew of twenty participated in the Fund Raiser for The Right Move at RPI on June 20.  Rochester talent took the top prize as Jeffrey La Comb swept all three games for the $100 prize for first place. Nine players tied for second and received $6.00 each.  Look for new format to attract more of the younger crowd, with trophy prizes for the lower section for first through fifth place.
