The USCF is proud to announce the 2008 Frank K. Berry U. S. Championship and the 2008 Frank K. Berry U. S. Women's Championship. These events will be held simultaneously on May 13th - 21st in Tulsa, Oklahoma. (Update, added Feb. 25: In case of a tie, a rapid playoff between the top two finishers based on tiebreaks will determine the US Champion. The winner of each Championship also qualifies to play on our Olympiad team.)
On the weekend following the initial event (Memorial Day Weekend), the two top finishers from each event will square off in a championship match finale in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
The US Championship Qualifier Open will be held on March 28th - 30th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This tournament will have several qualifying positions into the Championship. More details will follow soon on all of the events.
The 2008 FKB US Championship and Women's Championship Organizing Committee consists of Frank Berry, Jim Berry, and Tom Braunlich. Special thanks to Frank Berry as the primary sponsor of the event. More details forthcoming.
