We have the pleasure to announce that the Permanent Commission of the FIDE for Chess Composition decided during its meetings in Pula 2000 and Wageningen 2001 that Macedonia should organize the 7th World Chess Composition Tournament (7th WCCT). We would like to invite all FIDE member countries to take part in this world team championship devoted to the realm of composing chess problems and studies.
The Director of the 7th WCCT is Zivko Janevski, P.O. Box 163, 91480 Gevgelija, Macedonia. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please affirm your country's intention to participate by sending your application to the Director before the 1st of March 2002, including the name and address (home, e-mail, etc.) of your country's team-leader.
Three entries are permitted in each of the 7 sections of the WCCT (see General Rules and Themes). All entries must be sent to the Tournament Director by the 1st of March 2003 (postmark).
Apart from this official publication, the themes and other material regarding the WCCT may be found on the PCCC web-site: http://www.saunalahti.fi/~stniekat/pccc/.
