I would like to take this opportunity to wish all visitors to this site a happy Christmas (or holiday season). Of course if you celebrate a different religious festival at this time or even if this time of year bears no special significance for you I hope you will still accept my wish for happiness, peace and prosperity at this time and into 2009.
And in particular I would like to wish best of luck to all those travelling to worlds in Cork. I'm sure it will be a great tournament and I look forward to meeting many of you there in a few days.
If you can't be at worlds but would like to know what is happening be sure to check this site for regular updates from the championships.
