INTEREST POSTING FOR A JUNIOR WORLD CORRESPONDENCE CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP FOR YOUNG WOMEN

The International Correspondence Chess Federation is considering holding a World Championship for young women, and is asking anyone who is possibly interested to contact us so we can determine if there will be enough participants to schedule the event.

The event will be played on the ICCF webserver (www.iccf-webchess.com). Moves are made on a chessboard via drag and drop, an easy way to play, with the server sending the move to the opponent, and keeping track of moves, time used, and even sending reminders.

Any young woman who will have her 20th birthday after March 1, 2009 will be eligible to play, and is requested to send a note expressing your interest to schakels@comcast.net. Any questions will certainly be welcome. Details will be determined later, but there are no ICCF dues, and the entry fee for the recent Junior World Championship was 20 CHF, about $20. Time controls are typically 50 days for 10 moves.

Finally, I want to express heartfelt thanks to Susan Polgar for volunteering to post this note on her websites and blogs.

Corky Schakel, ICCF-US Secretary
