Everyone may have seen that the Scholastic Closed has suffered a few setbacks this year. The board has decided that the tournament will continue, so Dean will be sending an email to the next players in the list to try and get a Scholastic Closed together as soon as possible. I know this is late notice, but we will try our best to work this out.

All applications must be received via the online form by April 20th, 2018!

In other news, Ryan Swerdlin has unfortunately had to drop out of the Closed, and has been replaced by Richard Shtivelband.
