2015 BLIZZARD BOWL....THE RESULTS



The 4th annual Blizzard Bowl presented by Sonwil Distribution was once again a great success. Thanks to Mr. Peter Wilson who had the vision to relocate the tournament to his Jamison Business Park in Elma made it easily accessible and enjoyable. The tournament attracted over 50 players new and old friends alike, joined by the game of chess. The food, and drinks were perfectly wonderful thanks to Mrs. Patty and her crew who work for the Jamison Business Park catering services.

The tournament was split into two sections this year, trying to attract more players around WNY. We instilled an unrated section which crowned a new team champion, "The Buffalo Seminary" coached by Mr. Cirillo. The Rated section crowned once again "The Pioneer Central School" coached by Tom Warner.


The results that follow below are the wall charts with all the players from each section. Congratulations to all "The Top 5" in each section for they took home trophies. Danielle Little (Buffalo Seminary) and Chris Darling (Pioneer Central) were the unanimous Winners.
