Thursday’s Grand Prix Tournament at the Marshall has been enhanced with a dizzying array of prizes lately. Last week, our own Cameron Hull walked with well over $100, claiming the upset prize as well as splitting the U1700 prize. I am happy to announce a REDUCED ENTRY FEE for friends of Brooklyn64! We would like to extend a radically reduced entry fee of $20 (regularly $40) to all your members and friends if they mention Brooklyn64 when registering.
SO GET OUT THERE AND REPRESENT BROOKLYN64! and more importantly win some of those guaranteed prizes!
The details of the event are as follows:
