The following seven players will compete for various titles and prizes: Alan Gregg, Lon Rutkofske, Bill Wingrove, Matt Morabito, Avery Jones, Tony West , and newcomer: Fred Lahr!  Because this year's tournament will once again be a "pay to play" event, USCF and PHCC memberships are required.Changes and details to the tournament will be emailed prior to January 12th ,  with January 5th being the registration cutoff deadline.
I am in the process of preparing the January 2017 issue of Chess Chatter and want to include details regarding the 2017 PHCC Championships, but will delay publication until after the tournament begins.  Right now I am looking to have the tournament  during the window of January 12 - March 9th.
