2011 Trophies Plus U.S. Girls Junior Open Championship

Hmmm, haven't heard of this event before - is it new this year?  It's being held in conjunction with the U.S. Open, which always has a big draw.  Unfortunately, there are only 12 pre-registered participants thus far.  Not exactly what I'd call a thumping success...

I believe this is the official website (at USCF).
