 2017 New England Open Cutting to the Chase
 FM Christopher Chase
  December 2017

Labor Day 2016 found me in Portland, Oregon, of all places, playing in the Oregon Open. It was a long trip but well worth it as I ended up clear first with 5.5/6, winning $2,000. I then went up the coast to Seattle to see what was left of my childhood homes and schools on Mercer Island, right next to Seattle; I lived there to the 5th grade. The answer is not much.
