Last October, a pleasant gentleman asked me to plug his December event. I'm embarrassed to say I forgot: my apologies!
My incipient senility aside, we're generally happy to give free publicity to any Chicagoland chess event, or any major Illinois even, or even Midwest & national events of particular interest to Illinois players. Whether the editors of this blog like you is not relevant. If it's a good event of interest to Chicago players, you're welcome to send it.
I would appreciate getting copy that requires minimal formatting.
