9. THANKS
At the end of my report I’d like to thanks all the friends who help me in this important
and difficult work, especially my “boss” Frank Geider, the Direct Entry Commissioner
Ian M. Pheby and all the Tournament Directors: without their daily work, it would not
be possible for our players to enjoy their favourite hobby!
Amici sumus!
Torino, -5/06/2015.
