Danish Step of the Grand Prix postpone

At my return of Chicago, I've received a bad news from Jakob Bavnshøj : The convention SolCon has been cancelled. He insisted that the Danish Step isn't cancelled yet and he will search a new date. Probably the danish step will take place in Fall.

Staaab : the European list

Our dear president, Julian Ziesing, asked me to recall you that we have an official list of announcements : Staaab. I invite everyone who wants to have information on what occurs to Europe to look at this list.

Heard about this week in Europe

I heard a lot of nice things about this week in Europe. I want to thank all the people who support us. Don't forget that this week was imported from North America. This Week in North America is directed by my friend Buz Eddy.

Back from Chicago

I had the pleasure to be in Chicago, for their first tournament since the seventies. We were 30 players and 9 boards were played. For a lot of players, it was their first tournament. The tournament was great with a lot of surprise : the Saturday's guest star, Matt Shields. Mike French won it, with a solo during the second round. Congratulations Mike!
The whole results
I invite all of you to come in Chicago for the Weasel Moot (9-10 June). It will be a very important event in North America. Don't forget it.

The tournoi du Dauphiné was the first step of the Tour de France 2007. This year, the French had chosen to reduce the number of step with only 7 steps. So, each step is very important. For this first step, like in Brussels, Yann Clouet won the tournament.
