Re: Event Cancellation

I did send a message to Carl to ask for a separate section to list event cancellations; however I expect like everyone else he is overwhelmed by the current situation. Rather than add cancellations of chess events (Leagues, Congresses, Training Sessions etc) to various other threads, debates, secti...

Had quite enough of this thread so closing it off.

Alex H was right to retract - even if he won't come clean.
