International Chess Day!

This year International Chess Day is on a Wednesday, so when you come to Family Chess Night and/or Chess Camp on July 20, 2011, if you know the special password, you'll get a special prize.  The special password is "Grandmaster." 

A Grandmaster is the highest title a chess player can attain (besides World Champion). When used precisely, it is the title awarded by FIDE, starting in 1950, but it can be used to describe someone of comparable ability. The FIDE is the Fédération Internationale des Échecs or World Chess Federation, an international organization that connects the various national chess federations around the world and acts as the governing body of international chess competition.
