Players arriving for 2010 SPGI

The 2010 SP Girl's Invitational will officially take place tomorrow on the beautiful campus of Texas Tech University. I have been picking up players and their families from the airport since early this morning. The last one for the day will arrive at around 11:30 pm. The rest will arrive tomorrow morning.

This is the 7th year of the most prestigious all-girls event in the United States. This year, nearly 45 participants from across the country are taking part in this very special event. It will be a memorable week for girl's chess in America. Here are the champions from past years:

• 2009: Yang Dai (Virginia)
• 2008: Courtney Jamison (Texas)
• 2007: Julia Kerr (New York) and Eunice Rodriguez (Florida)
• 2006: Abby Marshall (Virginia)
• 2005: Anya Corke (California), Alisa Melekhina (Pennsylvania), Abby Marshall (Ohio)
• 2004: Roza Eynullayeva (Massachusetts)
