A few months prior to this tournament, I received a letter from the CMSCA (Charlotte Mecklenburg Scholastic Chess Association) stating that I had qualified (by rating) to play in the NC Junior Invitational.  I originally thought it was a mistake and the age grouping was under 18, but it turned out to be under 21.  I was originally an alternate and agreed to participate and with some of the higher rated players declining, I ended up filling out the field and playing as the lowest rated player.  So it ended up being 5 child prodogies and one very average college age player.  While I didn't play well in later rounds, but I did pull off a nice upset in Round 1 and I had a good showing against Mike Klien (now a NM and chess corespondant) in the final round.
