Roger Blaine, Tournament Director of GLICC is about ready to kick off Tournament No. 33 to be played on ItsYourTurn.com -- starting in a few days!  ItsYourTurn runs correspondence-style games, i.e. you move about once a day, and the game may take 3 months or so to finish.  You would have about 10 opponents at the same time.  If you are interested, then let me know by March 5th, and we can get you in.  If you are not familiar with the site, log on to www.itsyourturn.com and get an idea of how it works.  GLICC is not run directly by IYT, but started as a group of friends interested in the game (Big-Board 10X10).  Would be pleased to hear from you.  Roger Blaine email:  reblaine@hotmail.com
