Athens, 3/12/2001,

Dear friends,

We have the pleasure to announce to you the first on-line Championship in Greece and to thank you for the love you have shown to us so far. The Championship is a dream we had for many years and has not come true until now. Being aware of the possibilities the Internet has offered us, we put our faith in and prospected a website where our favorite game could be played even by people who, in spite of their love for the game, were too busy to play it. Apollo, the first Chess Server, came into life three years ago, but could not handle a large number of chess players. During its first year of test operation (2000-2001) 4,200 chess players from all over the world have registered and that motivated us to hurry to upgrade it. At last, with the New Year and, more specifically, toward the end of the first two months, the first Internet Championship is real.

Evidently, participation applications are free of charge and the deadline for their submission expires on 15/1/2002. We believe that we will come up to your expectations for a strong championship of high quality. We, the persons who have joined efforts to make this happen, hope that by organizing that Championship we will acquire the necessary experience that will allow us to swim into deeper waters with you.

Finally, we inform you that after the expiration of the deadline for participation in the games you will be notified of the procedure that will be followed and the money prizes. This is due to the fact that the exact number of players is not known yet. For potential changes or news we will let you know by e-mail or through this home page.

The Organizing Committee is composed of the following persons:

Mina Georgiadou
Ioannis Goumas
Argiris Kotsis
Evangelos Bardis
Vassilios Sinanidis

Andreas Andreou is responsible for programming

Best regards,

The chess.gr  team
