I meant to post something about the brand new ACF email newsletter but my real work overtook me. Now that I have some time, I should really say well done to the ACF. After some period of silence, I think the last one was in January, the email newsletter is back online. This latest version is a significant improvement over the newsletter's previous formats. I like the latest design - simple but more professional looking. And we can expect this going forward as the ACF now appear to have the right personnel with production and content editing now split between new guy Stephen Cannings and ACF veep Denis Jessop respectively. The old one-man operation was just too much.
But you know, something seemed to be missing. Or rather someone! Where in the world is Gary Wastell? Last January this Victorian chess supremo was elected president of the ACF. Yet todate, I have not seen this guy made an appearance online. He's not there on Chess Chat (where at least 3 ACF heavies are regulars) and there's nothing on the official site. You'd think Mr Wastell might appropriately welcome readers to the new ACF newsletter, but nope - that was left to the veep. Is this guy shy? Is he busy? What are his plans? Ideas? Anything?
I'm still thinking that our new president is really just being a bit of tease and any day now we're about to hear of a big surprise. If any of our Victorian readers does spot him in the mean time, say we said hi. Then hand him this link. I'm sure the inhabitants will be hospitable.
