Welcome back to the New Jersey Knockouts blog! Where have you been? More importantly, where have I been? The US Chess League starts up again in under two months, and you can tune in right here to find all the action.Until then, there’s other New Jersey chess action to keep us occupied. The New Jersey State Chess Federation has another Futurity tournament starting on Monday, July 7, 2008, the day after the conclusion of the World Open.

The ten-player single round robin will take place at the Dean of Chess Academy in Branchburg, NJ. It concludes on July 11, 2008.
