National CC Federation of Germany
Dear members of BdF and SchemingMind as well as participants of the first international team contest in Chess960!
As organizers of this first international team contest in Chess960 ever we whole-heartedly welcome you.
Cherished since long, this team contest became finally true. Fast and without any problems the negotiations arrived at their destination. We hope that this match will be the beginning of a long series of further international matches and we hope too that one day it will be possible to set up an international rating system for Chess960 which will be approved worldwide. Once again thanks for joining and we wish both teams a smooth and quiet match, have fun and exciting games.
Our best regards
Hansjürgen Baum und Uwe Bekemann
