  BAL Chess - 2015-16 Annual Dinner on 9/08/2016 - details

So far you told us that about 40 are expected to come but let me know if you are aware of any changes (up or down) as I have to let the restaurant know. For your convenience, I attached the dinner list Luis and I developed based on your inputs, thanks.

· The BAL Chess dinner is on Thursday 9/08/2016 and will start at 6 pm and end around 10 pm after the awards ceremony. Trophy setup will begin around 3 pm.

· The cost is $30 per person (tips included but of course you can add if you wish). See note at end.

· Denis and Luis will be collecting the monies and posting to the guest dinner list – arrive a bit early if you can so we have time to collect before the food is served.

· The dinner will be served first followed by a presentation by this year's invited guest speaker (GM) Oliver Barbosa and ending with awarding the trophies.

· T.J. Byrnes restaurant (212.406.4551) located at the corner of 77 Fulton street in the community of South Bridge Towers located next to the South Street Seaport. You can take the #4 or #5 train or any train to the Fulton Street station - walk east on Fulton and you should not miss it. Call Denis at 917.886.4668 or Luis at 646.469.4793 if you require assistance.
