I missed International Chess Day

July 20th is International Chess Day, but for some reason I missed it. Possibly due to time zone differences, as the day is almost over when Europe wakes up. I am not sure how widely it is celebrated, but everyone seemed to get an email from Kirsan Ilyumzhinov thanking us for being chess players (If you didn't just ask to see my copy)
I did see a smattering of related news, where some cities organised simuls, but I am not sure it was really celebrated with any great gusto. Something to work on for next year perhaps?
