Southwest Chess Club Action in June!

It's that time again!  Polish Fest (one of the oldest of Milwaukee's ethnic festivals) is once again coming to the beautiful Maier Festival Grounds on Milwaukee's fabulous lakefront, and Southwest Chess Club will once again have a presence there.  This year introduces a new feature - SIMULS!  YAAAAHHHHHH!  A great idea, I hope tons of people sign up!  This is your chance area residents and visitors from out of town to match your chess skills and wits against a national master:

The Club also has one of their artfully named club tournaments scheduled.  Do some of the members sit around someone's kitchen table drinking beer and playing penny-ante poker while making up names for these events?  Just wondering...
