FMs Josh Colas and Justus Williams are competing in the IM St. Louis Winter Invitational taking place at Chess Club and Scholastic Center in St. Louis. Both are looking to earn their last norms to complete the requirement of three. Both would then have to eclipse the 2400 FIDE barrier. Both are currently finishing their first years at Webster University. There is also a parallel GM Invitational.
