Chicago Open Date Preference?

Post by No Rules Westbrook »

I've recently gotten a few people asking about the prospective date of Chicago Open, requesting certain dates, stating that they cannot make some dates, etc.

If anyone who will likely be attending Chi Open has dates that they know are not going to work for them (for some reasonable reason like out of country, taking some big exam, hysterectomy scheduled, you know, that kind of stuff), let me know in this thread, and I'll take it into consideration. You can also state your preference if you like, but I'm most concerned about the dates that will preclude certain people from attending.

I'm leaning toward the last weekend in July (29-31), or at least thereabouts.

The first two weekends of July would preclude my attendance, which would make me very sad. I missed last year for only the second time in the tournament's existence, and I hope to get another streak going this summer. The last weekend of July would be swell, as would the weekends before and after.

I'm going to weddings on the weekends of July 9 and 23, if that counts. I'd probably attend CO on any other weekend.

This is fine. I'd prefer not in August.

If many staff are needed, I could swing a bus trip to help out. At this point, I have no preference.

As always, Donald, your staffing assistance would be greatly appreciated. Of course, I'll pay for lunch for the staff.

If someone can put me up for the weekend, I'm there. Given that I'll be getting there for less than just about anyone, I can pitch in for a hotel floor.

So, since I'm writing for this, I'm going to try to come and staff. I don't yet have any plans for the summer (not until mid- to late August at the earliest…which is notably not summer anymore for some people, and therefore irrelevant).

I should be able to make the last weekend in July for my 9th straight CO (If you count a Maryland mirror.) Has anyone heard rumblings/stepping up about a potential CO trash this year?

Some of us Okies are interested in attending the trash portion if it's going to happen.
