Bob’s background as a writer and editor will serve our class well in this capacity.

2020 European Championship: Bidding reopened

It is with great regret that IOMICA has to inform its members that the bidding for the 2020 Continental Championship will be reopened effective immediately.
This is due to administrative issues with the Orbetello bid.
All NCA’s are invited to submit their bid to the the events committee chairman (vcevents at by 25th August.
It is hoped that this will allow all NCA’s time to prepare their bids or previous bids resubmitted.
