The February issue of Northwest Chess was completed this evening and will be sent to the printers soon. The above link is the Formal Mock-up of the issue, summarizing page by page what is in the issue.
I feel this is a fantastic issue. It should arrive on or before the 1st (or somewhere around there). I want to thank the readers (there were several) who contributed material for the magazine. There are some very interesting articles, games, and photos. I also put several crosstables in the issue.
I also want to thank Ralph Dubisch who did a great job annotating games, and Eric Holcomb, Duane Polich, and Rusty Miller for their comments and suggestions as the issue was taking shape. They also did a great job proofreading.
