15th Annual New York State Open
May 18 - 20th
Continental Chess is coming up with its next tournament, and that would be the 15th New York State Open 2007. This one is located in the scenic Lake George area in upstate New York. The venue will be the Howard Johnson Tiki Resort, right at the southern tip of Lake George. I estimate it to be a 3.5-hour drive from the New York City area. I don't consider it one of the big-money chess tournaments, but still $3,000 guaranteed prizes. Sections are Open, Under1900, and Under1600. Registration fee cost $66 online and rooms go for $79 per night. Heck, I might see you there!
