I moved to Saint Louis Dec 30, 2009. I lived 1 block from the Chess Club, and since that was too far, I moved, and now I live behind the Club!
Saint Louis is a great city, not only for chess, but Forest Park is the best park in the United States. Luckily, the park is in walking distance from my place. The Chess Club is the nicest I have ever seen, and this year will see many great events.
If you have never been to the Chess Club, then come in May and watch the US Women's and US Championships (and the weather will be perfect).
As always, enjoy the puzzle!
