To all Correspondence Chess Friends,
Wednesday, January 1, 2020: As 2019 ends, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to you and all those dear to you for a very healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year. I also want to extend my sincere thanks to all officials and delegates for their devoted work on behalf of ICCF during the last year.
This last year has indeed been demanding for all ICCF officials and volunteers but nevertheless has proved to be successful for ICCF, which has achieved substantial progress and improvement, and most of the decisions made during the last congress in Vilnius have already been implemented in the ICCF bylaws and on the server.
The ICCF Congress 2020 will be held near Glasgow, Scotland, in August, and I hope that many delegates, officials and correspondence chess players will join us. More details about the venue will be published soon.
In closing, let me once again extend to you my best wishes for the New Year. I hope that 2020 will bring satisfaction in all your endeavors, personal, professional, and chess!
Eric Ruch ICCF
