April 2013 issue of Northwest Chess

April 2013 Mock-up (page 1)

The April issue of Northwest Chess is in the final proofing stages and should be ready to be sent to the printers on Monday, March 18, 2013. So you should receive your copies in the mail on time or early. The above link is the Formal Mock-up for the issue.

We have great coverage of the 21st Dave Collyer Memorial tournament held in Spokane, including three pages by IM John Donaldson.

Due to space considerations, I decided to put all the remaining games from the Oregon Championship (R5-R9) and seven games from the Idaho Championship in the April issue as the second installment of the series of State Championship Games (notes by FM Ralph Dubisch). Then in the May 2013 issue we will present all the Washington Championship games (R5-R9) to conclude our 3-issue feature!

The 32-page issue is packed full of really great material from all three states. It has been a pleasure working on this issue.
