Kenilworth's Garden State League 2013-14 season opens at Rutgers on October 15th.
past years we fielded 2 or 3 teams but 2012-13 was such a disaster,
we're cutting down to one. At the moment, our lineup for the bulk of the
matches is John Moldovan (1877), Greg Tomkovich (1700) and Geoff
McAuliffe (1608). Don Carrelli is slated to play 2nd board vs. Rutgers
but he probably won't be available for other matches until after the new
To compete for the championship, we really need to
bolster the roster. Our 1st board scored just +1-3=3 last year and will
face much stronger competition this season, as 3 foes have added masters
(Peter Radomskyj, Arthur Macaspac, Karl Dehmelt) and Rutgers has lured
Michael Goeller from us.
So, we are looking for someone 2000+ to step-up. If we can't improve
at the top, let's do so at the bottom or in the middle. Another 1600+
would still be a great addition.
As you can see from the schedule
below, 5 of the matches will be at home. The only other travel involved
is to Branchburg (in December) and Rahway (in February).
