Jason DelpireHello, I am a chessplayer from Wisconsin. I very recently got a job in Keystone for the winter season. Great opportunity, but I'm having difficulty finding (reasonable) lodging on such short notice. I am running out of options, so I'm asking if there are any kind fellow chessplayers in the area that have a bit of extra room. Thank you.
