Chess Life Online did a nice cover on the HCCC XI and Goddesschess' sponsorship was prominently mentioned - along with new sponsorship by the North American Chess Association!  Congratulations once again to all of the players.  Some of us Goddesschess folk will be putting out heads together tomorrow evening over dinner in Las Vegas to discuss what we can to to encourage more chess femmes to play in the HCCC XII, which will be held this fall.  Stay tuned!
