By mutual decision of USCF and the American Foundation for Chess (AF4c), the 2007 US Championship will not be sponsored by AF4C, but the two organizations will continue to work
together on different projects. The Af4C has sponsored the U.S. Championship since 2000 and will continue to look at possibilities for future U.S. Championships. Erik Anderson of AF4C will
also donate $25,000 to the USCF, which might be used as part of a U.S Championship prize fund.
The 2007 US Championship is now open for bidding. Further details will be posted as soon as possible. We know the chess public is anxious to know more. Feel free to log on as a member and post a comment.
