I played in this tournament, and as far as I can recall my games, I’m posting some of them annotated here in this site. In the Round 5 game that I played with D. De Luna, I missed some winning lines that although I was up by a pawn in the endgame, but because of our opposite colored bishops, the game ended in a draw.
The next APECC Executive Chess Tournament will happen in July 9, 2016. See this forum topic for more details.
