At one of the tournaments I met and played bughouse with NM Dan Van Riper who was a close friend for a long time. I would visit him in Oswego, and through him I would meet Robert Nassiff and Bill Adam.
I should say before I forget that we have lost way too many talented young players: Bill Adam, Bruce Bowyer, Erez Klein, and Peter Winston.
At the same White Plains tournament I played monopoly with tournament director Bob Moran and a couple of other people on Saturday Night.
As the song goes, when I'm down and blue, I'd rather be me than you.

I must have been as strong as an ox then, because in addition to the tournament directing equipment, I brought about a dozen trophies. They were actually the same trophies I had won over the last couple of years. I was putting them to good use.
The tournament went reasonably smoothly all things considered. I remember Russ Garber played. My friend Dan Van Riper played in the quad on Sunday. There was one complaint to the USCF but they couldn't cancel my affiliation again because I didn't really have one.
