It would be helpful to have some insight into the possible NM Tournaments that could happen in the next year. I'm not suggesting a commitment to hold a tourney, but the various thoughts of the various organizers on what might be coming up.
My reason is that I make long range commitments and lose flexibility in the mid and short term. Without insight into what is being considered, I can schedule myself out of the opportunity to play.
Sorry, but no category fit this post.
