We honor the memory of our friend, GM Walter Browne, by renaming our National Open Championship Blitz after him. Walter started the World Blitz Chess Association (WBCA) and always seemed to be in time trouble. His flag has fallen, but he will always be a champion to us. As long as we run this chess festival and have this blitz, his name will be on it. –Janelle & Alan Losoff
Winner of this tournament will receive the WALTER SHAWN BROWNE CUP
