The Welsh Correspondence Chess Federation will host the 2018 ICCF Congress from 19th - 23rd August at the Imperial Hotel, Llandudno.
This will be the second time Wales has hosted Congress, having previously hosted the event in Cardiff, 2015.
During the week, delegates from around the world will convene in Llandudno to make important decisions about correspondence chess and it's future.
Following the opening ceremony on Monday 20th August, there will be an awards presentation, during which the ICCF President will present medals and certificates to title holders and tournament winners. Any Welsh player who has earned a title (including CCE and CCM titles) since the last Congress will be very welcome to attend the ceremony and collect their award in person. We are also hoping that the gold medals for the North Atlantic Team Tournament will be awarded to the Welsh team, although the outcome is still not completely certain!
Further details can be found on the Congress website, here; the full itinerary is here.
