    Vlad, I want to remind you that at last meeting we started discussing "late withdrawal" from the National Team (A.LeSiege). Any ideas? Looks like we postpone the discussion too often.

    Fred, you are right about it. Probably, the best option is to change our rules for 2020 Women Championship only.

    Paul, I agree with you about some little deflation. Many strong players have a current CFC-FIDE gap less than 100 points, compare to the average of 100+ points a few years ago. My personal gap...

    Not only Ian Findlay. M.Barron, D.Haessel and M.Dougherty have played many Zonals as well. I never played Seniors, but who knows...

    I don't think it's a good idea to combine Senior and Zonal. Many seniors played in the Zonal this year, including the winner.

    I have posted my Olympiad report on CT. Major points:

    1. For the first time in my career as a captain, we experienced a serious food problem in Batumi. N.Noritsyn could not play against India in...

    Generally, I like the bid. Just a couple of points:

    1. With the huge deterioration of Canadian Open in last 10 years, Canadian Closed (combined with sections) has a chance to be the major Canadian...

    I will post my report on last Olympiad later, including incident with A.LeSiege and my proposal how CFC should be better prepared to this scenario in the future.

    Maybe I oversimplify it, but I see it this way (or at least Vlad thinks this way):

    1. Executive (7 persons) have 100% of the power
    2. Voting members have no power at all. They can only vote once...

    I am not sure about other cases, but Olympiad regulations in Handbook are absolutely irrelevant. For example, "Selection Committee" is still in Handbook.

    I don't think our juniors are CFC-underrated, they are FIDE-underrated. I see it as a very serious problem, but I don't see any good solution to this problem. The CFC-FIDE gap for many juniors is...

    OK, great. Thank you for the explanation. For some reason, it wasn't clear enough for me.

    What happens if Egis wins both elections? I would like to know the answer before I submit my vote.

    15 is the average number between 10 and 20. A.Matras-Clement and Q.Zhou shared 2-3 place at the last Canadian Women. There is a bonus of 20 points for 2nd and 10 points for 3rd place.
