My name is Lauren Goodkind and I have been playing in USCF tournaments for about nine years now. I'm also trying to get more females to play chess too. I produce a TV chess show, "Chess Diva" in Palo Alto, California, with my twin sister Barbara. The purpose of the show is to promote chess especially to females, since it is a male-dominated game. Over the summer, we entered the sixth episode in the WAVE (Western Access Video Excellence Awards) contest. The link is http://www.accesswithoutborders.org/wave. About a month ago, we learned that "Chess Diva" was a finalist for the "best instructional" category. Two days ago, I flew to Denver, Colorado to attend the award ceremony. We are happy that "Chess Diva" won the award for the "best instructional" category!! The sixth episode features Barbara and I teaching some chess positions. We also show a "Chess in the community" video. Not only that, we also feature top USCF female chess players interviews with Alisha Chawla and Jessica Lauser. We invite you to watch our show on the internet and give us feedback! The link to the show is http://www.geocities.com/chessdiva.show/Episode6.html. Enjoy, Lauren and Barbara
You're still so close to the threshold. If you had won against Allen B... next time!
