Situations Vacant

Russell Sherwood  Sunday, September 9, 2018

Two interesting opportunities exist within Correspondence Chess:

 

ICCF Webmaster. - Tasked with maintaining the ICCF Website

WCCF Tournament Controller - we are always looking to help players develop into the organisational side of things. A great first step is to become a Tournament Director. In this role, you would oversee a number of events and work towards the prestigious ICCF International Arbiter award.

In both cases, if you have any interest please get in touch with either Austin Lockwood or Russell Sherwood for a no commitment discussion or further details!

Provisional Welsh 2018/4 Rating List

Russell Sherwood  Sunday, September 2, 2018

As always this is provisional until the full list is posted. Gareth Yeo continues his climb, although Tony Balshaw also puts on a few points to almost maintain the gap. Special mention goes to Andrew Smith in gaining 42 elo!  Personally quite happy to see the tanker starting to turn!
