Tonight is the City Speed Chess Championship (RR, G/5; d/0, $10 entry, prizes, unrated) finale!  NM Josh Bloomer went unbeaten in the Qualifier and just has to get past 5 challengers in the Championship section to tie the mark for most titles.

This Friday is the IHOP Quick (4SS, G/24; d/5, $5 entry, prizes, Quick-rated).

Also, the USCF sent me this reminder about the CO Chess Festival:
