It's a Date

| Permalink | 1 comment

(See March 16, 04) From America's Foundation for Chess: "America’s Foundation for Chess (AF4C) and NTC Foundation have set the dates for the 2004 U.S. Chess Championships. The national title tournament will take place from November 24 through December 5, 2004, at the Hilton Torrey Pines in La Jolla."

"This will be the fourth year that AF4C has hosted the annual tournament and its first year doing so with a co-sponsor. Expected to maintain its $250,000 prize fund, the 2004 U.S. Chess Championships will be held over 12 days and is expected to attract attention from around the world. Chessmaster® is returning as a 2004 corporate sponsor."

Allow me to say "Yay!" More good chess, more good money, more of a good thing. It would also be nice to see some serious live coverage of the event this time around. I'm sure their sponsors would appreciate it. Thousands of Americans get up early to watch the top European events; I'm sure many more would love to watch the US Championship live with commentary at a decent hour!

Instead of having sponsor-free rebroadcasting by the ICC, Playchess.com, et al, they could have a nice page with information and links for their sponsors and their own agenda. The design wasn't the most subtle thing I've ever done, but you can't deny that X3D got their money's worth of name recognition from this!

Or we could show all the games at Playchess.com and have audio commentary like we did during Linares. I'd promise to mention the AF4C, the sponsors, and a mission statement every 30 minutes or so on the air. And now for these messages from our sponsors....

The most frequently asked question are about about essays completing. Students have got a lot of hesitations whether to buy pre-written papers. That's related with numbers of scam writing corporations, which want to get client's cash.
