saying that the CCA site got about 1,300,000 hits in 2007, leading to the conclusion that CCA has a substantial Internet presence.
Mr. Vega presented the statistics for the site in a “monthly basis” format. He reported that during the month of January 2008, the website reached 150,000 hits which forecast a good year for the website.
He said that all these accomplishments could not be achieved without the support and contributions of the people who work together as a team.
Since CCA is a confederation of national federations, any feedback, comments and suggestions must be channeled through the national federations according to our official regulations.
The President concluded his report by thanking the national federations and the members of the Board for their support and efforts.
We have many more successes ahead of us.
Following this discussion, the delegate from Panama intervened to say that they were receiving e-mails which contain a series of fabrications, assumptions, and, in some cases personal attacks, aiming to poison the confidence in CCA.
The representatives of the Costa Rican Chess Federation made clear that their federation has no association, nor, do they support the contents of these e-mails, another member of the Costa Rican Chess federation, who participated in these comments, expressed his personal opinion.
In response to the delegate from Panama, Mr.Vega reiterated that the CCA was open to all Member Federations, but, it should not give importance to such comments, or be drawn to discussions of fallacies or assumptions of demagogic character which are products of people’s imagination.
Mr. Vega believes that it is best not to respond to such personal insults because the truth and the work done for the Continent speaks for itself.
The President’s report was approved unanimously with applause.
Following this discussion, we examined the venues for the 2008 official events, which are as follows:
World Women’s Championship World Junior Under 20 World Youth Festival Chess Olympiad
