USCF is announcing its objective of holding the 2007 US Championship over the dates of May 15-23. Any dates after June would not allow a Zonal, and June is undesirable because some top players are committed to teach at chess camps, and because of the National Open.

Potential bidders have been asked to tentatively hold space for the dates of May 15-23, and qualified players are advised to avoid making other commitments then. There are at least three serious likely bidders, and we hope to be able to place the tournament within a few weeks.

It is likely that the 2007 US Women's Championship will be held later in the year, probably in the summer.
