Lowry Grand Prix Series

(In memory of our friend Paul)


The LGP is named in memory of Paul Lowry. Paul was a regular and friendly presence at
the club who was always willing to play a casual game or share one of his entertaining
stories. He greeted new players and made them feel welcome. Paul enjoyed a good battle
across the board but was wise enough to know it's just a game.

Play well, fight hard and most of all have fun!   The LGP is a series of six, one day tournaments held in Columbia & Augusta. These are
two section, Open & U1505, three round swiss tournaments. Time control is G65 +5s delay.
