Another thread has been bemoaning the "loss" of several matches. Let us step back for a moment and consider the following. #One. About TWENTY ONE matches HAVE been confirmed. #Two. Only FOUR matches have definitely been cancelled. There are still about five matches "pending". GSSF says it is going to replace the cancelled matches. But looking at the weekends that those 21 confirmed matches are going to take place upon, at this late date I don't see WHERE they could possibly be rescheduled for 2005. Some of them might not be replaced until 2006! Potential host clubs that have the facilities, equipment, and personnel necessary to conduct a GSSF match do NOT grow on trees. Those that do have the wherewithal probably conduct a lot of other activities already and probably do NOT have a lot of readily-open dates where they can drop anything and take on a GSSF match. There has obviously been a shakeup at GSSF. I suggest patience while everything settles down. We may not have seen the last of the changes, simply because they are still unknown.
