Prolonging of round
I think for some teams including mine it is pretty hard to find an acceptable date during this holiday period, I think some russian teams have the same problem.
So I suggest to prolong this round for one week. I think, if some captains would support this request, then committee could vote about it.

New Gomoku Tournament (NT)
|Hello All Gomoku Enthusiasts!
Having in mind that there are no official tournaments on Kurnik anymore, I would like to invite you to join our initiative of nice and fair private tournaments competition called New Gomoku Tournament (NT in short).
I know that many players resigned from official tournaments earlier, due to anonymous opponents, program players, non-cultural behaviour, etc. I am sure we can organise something better, for us, for all fair gomoku players.

|What about my proposal from "the rules" section ? :P
I mean , i asked first .
|2008-12-24 00:23:55 • Ales Rybka (autickocz)|
|Hi, I asked pavel, there is nothing wrong. Your games from last match against zakon havent been approved, so they havent been counted in the statistic.
You played 3 matches (5/6, 8/8, 5/8). So the results should be 18/22. Without 2 your games it is 17/20. The games will be counted after aprroving from both captains.
|2008-12-23 22:37:38 • Michał Żukowski (zukolepl)|
|May the Peace of the Lord fill your soul
May the Love of God fill your heart
May the Light of the Lamb shine upon your path
May Hope Eternal guide you through the world
May Christmas remain with you each and every day.

RE: 3 round
|Would be nice if team in case of ending its participation lets the organizer know, we might add some punishment for such players for future seasons, if they decide to play again... Because now until they get enough walkovers to be removed some other teams will get unnecessary +- again.|

New players of Trojan Horse
We have a problem connection with approving new players.
We wanted to approve 2 new players from 3.round. They are on our waiting list since long time ago.
But becasue of my bad english :-( I misunderstood the rules, and I tried to approve them only after all team's match is approved.But now I see it was a big fault.This is my fault I know.Sorry.
I'd like to ask: is there any way to make it better ?
Waiting for your decision , regards :
