    The payment window for Australian CM and WCM applicants is now open until 9 Feb. Applicants have been emailed and post 140 will be updated from time to time to show who has paid.

    If any of the five remaining players eligible for CM from Australia wish to claim they need to send me an email confirming this in time for me to see the email and for them to pay by 9 Feb. After that they can still claim the title but the cost may increase from the current level of $75.

    A nice surprise but why so quick? Aren't titles meant to be approved by the Presidential Meeting every quarter?

    That applies to title applications with norms and so on that need to be checked carefully for eligibility. For direct titles the checking process is straightforward so they are awarded (more or less) right away.

    A few more posts starting with Michael's note about a Genna Sosonko article mentioning the vast number of titles have been moved to the soft titles thread.

    I have emailed FIDE to accept the 17 Australian WCM/CM titles that have been paid with payment notified as per post 140.

    The remaining three have been declined at least for the time being.

    A large number of Australian pins and certificates mostly arising from this event have arrived. I expect to start distributing these either towards the end of this week or early next week. I will post here again once all that I have addresses for have been posted. If any recipient has changed their postal address since advising me of it earlier this year they should email me at k_bonham@tassie.net.au .

    Mailout delayed by other commitments including unexpected ACF work. I now expect to do the mailout on either Wednesday or Friday this week. Apologies for the delay.

    Not all the certificates and pins for the Zonal have arrived in Australia yet. I've emailed the four players affected.
