I want to thank all of you for your many entries, and the effort put into making them so we could link them for the judges. I want to thank most of you for your judgining, giving of your time and wisdom. I would also like to thank those who have helped me this past year by acting as a sounding board on a whole host of issues. I would also like to thank those who were able to help us spread word about the organization through twitch, twitter, youtube, etc. In that vein, I would like to mention Alexey Root’s article for Chessbase – U.S. Open: Chess games, awards, signings, meetings | ChessBase that mentions us and has a picture of John Hartmann and I (Jim H. you probably don’t want to look at this on your big screen!)
