Again news regarding the CCI meeting in St. Louis

With regard to the 19th Biennial CCI Congress in St. Louis we received the following announcement of Luann Woneis and Tom Gallegos who had organised the original meeting, but due to Covid-19 were forced to adapt the Congress drastically.

Dear CCI Members and Friends,

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

When: Sep 3rd and 4th, 2020, beginning at 09:00 AM Central Time (US and Canada)
Topic: CCI 19th Biennial Congress Lectures Sept. 3-4, 2020

Register in advance for this webinar at:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. One registration allows you to access the lectures on both days. These webinars are free.

Note: You do not have to have the Zoom app to attend. You can access Zoom through your browser, unless your browser is Safari - Safari does not work well with Zoom. Use some other browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, for example). Or, for a smoother, easier experience, simply download the Zoom app in advance from the Apple App Store, or wherever you get your apps.


With Best Wishes for a Safe and Successful 19th Biennial Congress,

Luann Woneis & Tom Gallegos

This message was followed by an email of Tom Gallegos, especially meant for CH&LS members. In his email he wrote:

"[…] I'd really like your members to take note of the fact that there are chess books, not just chess sets, in our upcoming auction at Link Auction Galleries. I think your members will probably have a better understanding of what these books are worth than even most CCI members will!”.

As September 3rd and 4th are very near I hope that anyway all members who usually attend the CCI meetings or are looking for books on auctions, will be able to join the CCI webinar on both days, and I wish them good luck in the auction!
