The very competitive Open Section ended in a three way tie between Randy Mosteller (1846), Dan Quigley (1800) & Gerald Battaglia (1616) , all finishing with 2 points.

The Amateur (U1500) Section saw Josh Lewer (1438) dominate posting a perfect 3-0 score to take clear first and stand alone at the top of the LGP Standings! Daniel Smith (1394) took clear second with 2.5 points as Mike Mayfield (1440) & Ralph Buske (1335) finished with 2 points.

The spur of the moment Scholastic Section was won by Samuel White (714) who posted a perfect 3-0 score! John White (754), Jared Drake (669) & Josie Drake (568) all scored 2 points. The top finishers were awarded gift cards.
