Lubbock Mayor welcomes SPNI players
July 25, 2009
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Lubbock for the prestigious Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls. We are honored to host this unique event, which is one of the most prestigious all-girls events in the United States.
Players from all over the country were invited to the event, and I applaud the Susan Polgar Institute (SPICE) at Texas Tech, The Susan Polgar Foundation (SPF), and the Knight Raiders for hosting the event and raising awareness of chess.
We are proud to have you here, and I wish you the best of luck. I know it will be an exciting and challenging week.
Mayor of Lubbock
