The games begin at the K-6 Elementary National Championships in Nashville, TN (May 10-13) with bughouse and blitz.

Chesskid.com was also one of the first to arrive at the Opryland for a weekend full of game analysis and puzzle solving hosted by Fun Master Mike, and featuring special guests throughout the weekend.
