I prefer the second week. First week I'm attending an event in a different country so I won't be online most likely.

The current voting has a slight lean for the second weekend. I'll leave voting open until end of night Sunday night California time and put up the web pages
on Monday.

At Charles request this is now back in the main section.

Hi, Charles!

Thank you for organizing WCCC. Unfortunately, as I said before, I cannot make it this weekend. Therefore, I will have to withdraw Zurichess from this year edition.

Regards,

Hi Alexandru,

Thanks for the info. You are allowed to use an operator. If you post a thread to that in the main forum, you might get one. Others have done it
before.

Charles
