Hampden Harvest Tournament Report

11.12.06 Thirty-nine players turned out for the Hampden Harvest Tournament at Hampden Academy on Saturday, November 11, 2006. The top of the Open section was a four-way gridlock tie for first between Ghezai Menelik, Cullen Edes, Tom Sandford and Bryant Ciomei each scoring three points in this four round contest. In the K-12 section it was Zachary Smith all alone at the top with a perfect four. Also lonely at the top of the K-8 section was Gianluca Pane, this year's K-6 state champion, who blanked the field with four points. The massively illustrated tournament report with final results crosstables is here.
