2012 Milwaukee Summer Challenge

My adopted chess club, Southwest Chess Club, is introducing an entirely new tournament to the Milwaukee chess scene and something that we usually don't see -- a two day, five-round Swiss!  I hope we'll see a great turn-out for this event.  If this one is successful, maybe we'll see more (and bigger prizes) in the future.
