61th WCCC Ohrid 2018

Good impression about the organization of the Congress. But where are the results of the official competitions of composing?

Are we going to get a Bulletin?

All solving results are available on WFCC and/or WCCC2018 websites and/or here.
Please correct me, when I'm wrong.

Please give people some time to collect and prepare the whole material carefully.
By the way - compilation of latest WCCT booklet took several months and the world is still turning ...

In last years, except naturally, Dresden, such booklets did for 1 night since Thursday and Friday and even printed on paper! Do you represent, Frank?! Excuse to me my bad English, in Russian I would write more interestingly :-)

QCT #2. While the first three are excellent, with Misha managing two beauties, the last one is obviously non-thematic since the flight given by the keymove is not available in the twin phase !!

Thanks, Seetharaman!
I wrote that "it formally fulfills demands and adds some charm to the tourney", but somehow missed the fact that in the castling move wK gives the flight, not wR...
So, only the first three problems will stay in the award.

Several awards of the unofficial composing tourneys are now available on the Congress website:

As long as all the material is available online, the final bulletin can certainly take more time, like in the case of Dresden. Whether we need a bulletin or not, my view is that it is very useful, as a final report of the Congress, to have everything in one place.

If the organizers do not make the Bulletin on the closing day, it does not make sense to organize informal competitions during the Congress.

Now, as I could see, only a few unofficial composing tournaments are missed.

@Andrey & Valeri

There is a German proverb: “Those who are sitting in a glass house should not throw stones.”

Organising a week long congress with 200 (or more) participants is a big task. Give Ivan and his team some time to breath and show patience.

As you have proven incapable of organising a much smaller 2.5 day event with only 80 participants you should stay quiet on issues like this and not make any demands!

Mister Linss,
I to you or someone else what promised? What claims it is concrete to me on the European championship? Think before writing my name in this context.

Can anybody translate this from 'God knows what' into English?

Valery asks who was the person who promised that to Torsten, and what he [Valery] said to Torsten (concrete meaning essentially specific). Also he wants his own name not associated with this, asking Torsten to remove it from the accusation.

Note that I can't say anything about this. I only "translated" as it was not understood.

EDIT: For the reply below, Google Translate gives:
I wrote that I have nothing to do with the European championship, about which I reproached with a delicate mockery Mr. Linß. And what to think before you write. Sorry for the bad english.

Я написал, что не имею никакого отношения к европейскому первенству, про которое меня упрекнул с тонкой издёвкой мистер Линсс. И что надо думать, прежде чем писать. Извините за плохой английский.
