Hales Corners Challenge X!

Hola Darlings! I'm taking a short break after raking up all the twigs and debris in the back yard (whew!) left by several windstorms since the last time I cut the grass (3 weeks ago!). I'm going to change and walk to the supermarket for necessities such as toilet paper and bird seed and then change back into my sweat-soaked, insect-repellant impregnated clothes and rev up the 6 hp gas-guzzling lawn mower to give the grass out back the once-over. I wanted to take a moment to remind all of our millions of faithful fans (ahem) of this absolutely fabtastic event coming up in October - the Hales Corners Chess Challenge! It's good for 10 Grand Prix points! Goddesschess increased its special prizes just for the chess femmes for this tournament. There are now 2 prizes offered for femmes playing in the Open, and three prizes offered for femmes playing in the Reserve section. We hope more chess femmes than ever before will come out and play, and compete for the prizes.
