Patrick Van Dyke Wins Pierce County Open

Patrick Van Dyke of Maple Valley WA topped eight other players to win the Pierce County Open on May 18 (note the date on the USCF crosstable is wrong!). His score was 3.5-.5. 2nd at 3-1 was Paul Bartron of Tacoma. Gary Dorfner of Tacoma directed and even played a couple of games. The site was the Tacoma CC. Time control on the crosstable says G/65; d5 but your compiler believes it was G/60; d5.
