Mr. Dewain Barber, chairperson of the Denker Committee, received a complete tour of the magnificent campus of Texas Tech University today. He was shown a number of places where Texas Tech can host chess events from 10 – 5,000 or more players! He was thoroughly impressed with what he saw.
The official sponsorship contract for the 2007 Denker Tournament of HS Champions and the 2007 Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls will be signed tomorrow, which will include 2 full scholarships to the 2 winners. These 2 events will be held in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in late July.
Texas Tech will also host the Susan Polgar National Invitational for Girls for the next 5 years, beginning in 2008. Special thanks to Texas Tech University for the generous sponsorships and for supporting chess!
