11 March 37 seems to be his birth date, so 11 March 2012 would be the 75th anniversary of his birth, is it wrong ?

The first post is a copy&paste of the document sent by Mike Prcic. Of course, we all know that this is a memorial tourney.

I understand that Milan's widow prefers "JT" to "MT", and is pleased that he's being honored with this tournament.

Note the theme "suggestions" in the original post above. After reviewing the SG57 draft, I pointed out that it'd be difficult for a judge to upgrade/downgrade a problem based on if (or how well) some pre-determined criteria was met. (Normally meeting such criteria is mandatory, and a judge's only task is to evaluate the qualified entries.)

Indeed in the final version, the announcement reads simply: The theme for the tourney is free. No mention of Bristol, Grimshaw, Nowotny or Reciprocal Change.

Admin: Any chance you could add the closing date (31-Dec-2012) to the thread title?
