You are invited to our Quick 24 starting tonight at the Colorado Springs Chess Club (6SS, G24;d5, $10 entry, prizes, Quick-rated)!  There are 3 games this week and 3 next week.  Your entry fee gets you in for both weeks.  Even if you can't play all 6 games, that is fine.  Just let the TD know (me), and I can get you the appropriate bye.


NM Josh Bloomer took clear first in the Cabin Fever Reliever an inched closer to his steak dinner!
