The message below is published here on behalf of Alex Holowczak.
Thank you to those who responded to the original questionnaire.
After consulting with the ECF Board, players, captains, counties and unions, the first stage of this process generated results that have enabled us to come up with proposals contained in this consultation.
These proposals, or modifications suggested during the course of this consultation phase, will be put to a Board meeting held at the conclusion of the consultation phase. The Board will then decide which of these proposals will go forward to the Finance Council meeting in April.
The document, and the consultation response form can be found here: http://www.englishchess.org.uk/county-championships-consultation-second-...
As before, I am keen for these proposals to be shared as widely as possible, and I would be grateful if you could share these with players and others too.
The deadline for responses is Monday, 5th February.
If you have any questions about the proposals to clarify them in your minds, please feel free to ask.
ECF Director of Home Chess
