Hales Corners Chess Challenge XXXI - April 4, 2020 - CANCELLED

EDIT 3/12/2020:

I have been advised by the organizers of the HCCC XXXI that the event has been cancelled in consideration of the novel coronavirus outbreak in our country.  This step is taken out of an abundance of caution and consideration for the players and all the parents and guests who attend these events.


Hola darlings!  It's fast approaching spring 2020, and every spring the Southwest Chess Club sponsors a 4-round event (one day) where you can earn U.S. Chess Grand Prix points and hone your chess skills against some of Wisconsin's best chess players.

Goddesschess has sponsored separate prizes for female chess players awarded in addition to any prizes they may win, seemingly forever - well, at least since HCCC VIII!  A long time :)  This year we are once again sponsoring Goddesschess prizes for the chess femmes.

You can find information on HCCC XXXI at its blog in addition to the club's website, including online registration.

Goddesschess's prize structure:

Open:  $50 per win/$25 per draw 

Reserve:  $20 per win/$10 per draw 

Perfect Score Prizes for Females:  $80 in Open/$40 in Reserve

Paid entry for top female finisher in each section in the next HCCC (October 2020) should they choose to play.
