Former multitime club champions Bruce Felton and George Mirijanian, both of Fitchburg, tied for first place in the Reggie Boone Memorial tournament, held January 6 to February 3 at the McKay Campus School at Fitchburg State College. The Class A players, who drew each other in the third round, tallied 4.5-0.5 in a field of 25 players. Tying as runners-up with 3-2 scores were fellow Class A participants Larry Gladding of Leominster, Martin Laine of Lunenburg, and Dave Couture of Westminster, as well as Class B entrants Paul Giovino of Lunenburg, Arthur Barlas of Chelmsford, George Miller of Ashburnham and Tom Fratturelli of Leominster. Finishing behind the runners-up with 2.5-2.5 results were top-ranked expert Raymond Paulson of Lowell, 1999 club champion Geoffrey LePoer of Westford, Kenneth Gurge of Leominster, Mark Daley of New Ipswich, NH, and Max Sewell of Peterborough, NH. The tournament honored the memory of longtime club member Reggie Boone (1926-2008) of Gardner.
