Blindfold Championship and Chess Bazaar

A blindfold tournament was held on December 4th and 11th, with the final on December 18th during the annual Christmas party and chess bazaar.

Participants included Robert Chenault, Keevin Lee, Hans Multhopp and John Randolph. In a knockout format, Hans and John survived to the final round on December 18th. The night included food for everyone, an auction of chess books and equipment, and the blindfold final. Hans Multhopp donated a chocolate chess set for the final! So pieces were not only captured, but eaten! Here is the blindfold final game:
