    I think I remember reading that in TLA. Is that the one where they play Pink Floyd songs during the tournament, somewhere like Tennessee or Kentucky?

    I could just imagine a Grateful Dead Open. Maybe some chess games would get played, but it really wouldn't matter much.

    I am really happy to see this tournament still going. I smiled at the entry fee category of "seniors" I guess some Pink Floyd fans are getting up there in age, eh?
