Hi Ian and NSC

I can't make it on that Sun because it clashes with the last round of the Chess Artists tournament.

Is there any bank account where I could contribute with a donation?

Cheers and good luck!

Thanks ER. Sorry about the clash, but it couldn't be avoided.

Re: direct depositing a donation to a bank account - thanks for your support. We're working through some issues (tax related) and will let you know when we have an answer.
