This year, unfortunately, because of the strain on my finances due to this house downsizing thing -- which had been meant to DOWNSIZE my expenses as well as the time/energy spent in keeping up the yard, etc., thus freeing up more funds and time for my chessly activities -- HA! -- I was not able to fund prizes for female chessplayers for this year's MSC. I hope the ladies will turn out for it, nonetheless.  Goddesschess prizes will return for the next MSC.

As of June 19th, 48 pre-registered entries.  You can follow the action at the Southwest Chess Club blog here.  I see several ladies have, indeed, pre-registered, hooray!  I will be checking in on the action and cheering for you all as I continue to scrape off wallpaper and layers of old wallpaper paste, whilst pulling out my hair (see post below...)

Ta, darlings!  Good luck to all!
