There don't appear to be any issues with the particpants at the events thankfully. They had a minute's silence for the victims. Neil Crickmore is doing well in the 50+ section with 4.5/7. https://info64.org/european-senior-50/standings

Report doesn't mention the elephant in the room. The second half of the tournament must have felt pretty strange, I imagine, to any player who connected to what was going on a few miles away.

Also it's a pity there are no captions on the photos. I recognise the women but not the men.

I agree some reference to the Barcelona events you would have thought would have been automatic. There was a photo on the ECU twitter feed regarding the minute's silence (scroll down to August 18) https://twitter.com/ECUonline?ref_src=t ... ess.org%2F
