2009 ICCF Congress

The 2009 International Correspondence Chess Federation Congress is currently being held in Leeds, UK. From an Australian point of view there were two awards of note. Firstly Shane Dibley is now a CC International Master, while Correspondence Chess League of Australia President Tim Runting has been awarded a Bertl von Massow Medal (Silver) for services to the International Correspondence Chess Community.
As part of the social side of the congress a match was organised between the congress delegates and a team representing Yorkshire. The Yorkshire team (organised by PNG Olympiad rep Rupert Jones) triumphed 14-7, although they did have the advantage in that the match was played OTB (over the board).
