A statement by Adrian Mikhalchishin about the organization of the European Youth Chess Championship in Porec

News |

I have been present at the European Youth Chess Championships for 15 years, in the role of trainer and other functions. I must tell you that until now the best organized European Youth Chess Championship was held in Sibenik in 2007. There, the Croatian Chess Federation provided great accommodation, excellent food and good playing conditions, but here in Porec, everything is at an even higher level. I would especially point out the playing conditions in the beautiful “Zatika” hall.

During this competition a lot of important events have been organized, such as the Congress of the ECU for chess in schools, a very successful FIDE Trainers’ Seminar with 44 participants and a FIDE Arbiters’ Seminar.

As a representative of the European Chess Union and the President the Trainer’s Commission of the World Chess Federation, I am very pleased with the organization of this championship, organized by the Croatian Chess Federation, and would like it to be an example of good organization for all organizers of these kinds of championships in the future.
