Hales Corners Challenge XI!

It's coming soon! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by, darlings!  I encourage everyone within reasonable traveling distance of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to come to the Hales Corners Challenge XI - it's a great event and very player-friendly. It's a tough schedule but it's all in one day too - you can travel in for the Saturday event, stay over and trek back home on Sunday. TEN Grand Prix points.

There is a new location this year - players, please take note and don't show up at the wrong hotel!

Goddesschess is once again sponsoring special prizes for the chess femmes but we're introducing a new prize structure - we're trying to encourage more chess femmes to play in the Open event.  The more chess femmes who play in the Open, the higher the prize amounts and the greater the number of prizes and their tamounts will be.  So ladies, it's up to you.  For Challenge XII, the number of prizes and their amounts for chess femmes will be increased too -  or decreased - depending on the number of you who come out and play in the Open in Challenge XI. Come on chess femmes, get your feet wet - the water is just fine.
