I saw the announcement today at Chessdom.com: The French Women Chess Championship 2009 (National féminin 2009) will take place in Nimes, the south of France, from 10th to 22nd of August 2009. Jean-Claude Moingt (President of the French Chess Federation) first announced the news on Chess & Strategy in November 2008, now details are available. There will be 6 participants in a double round robin. It is a change from last year when 12 players competed in the event. This year's contenders for the French title are: IM Almira Skripchenko 2449, IM Sophie Millet 2379, WGM Maria Leconte 2334, IM Silvia Collas 2316, WFM Nino Maisuradze 2261, WFM Pauline Guichard 2257 Average ELO: 2332,7
