Is there anywhere I can find out about the qualifiers names for this event? I know that David Harwood and George Miller will represent England and I understand you will represent Germany. This is all I know so far.
I know that Ireland has Sean Cronin and Hugh Devlin and Wales has Dafydd Roberts and John Morgan but will these guys be playing?
Any news about Scottish players in this event?
Just curious about it.

hello Dennis, I was just wondering who placed the names of women for my name is not there :( did no one say there is a representative woman for the USA? I was invited to Prague by Charles and Alan, at nationals.

Kim, your question shall be addressed to Dr. John Reade from England - Secretary of WCDF. He accepts information from all National Federation and forms list of participants for each event. At the end he suppose to submit this list to organizers.  ACF, ICHF and all other WCDF members should send "endorsement list" to Dr. Reade.

Which is the official or recommended site: or ? Thank you

Added By Alex Moiseyev ( On Thu 07/07/05 1622BST:
I think first site - Czech Draughts, and second site - Czech 10x10.

On the first site there is a list of players in QT, which Federation / organization perhaps already submitted endorsement list. I didn't find anything from ACF, Canada, Barbados and most other WCDF members.

Perhaps they didn't make a final decision yet, have National later this year, or just wait something :) or don't know, that they have to meet deadline.

Regards, Alex

I have invited all delegates from paid up federations to submit the names of their entries to the GAYP Qualifier in Prague in October. So far I have David Harwood and Rawle Allicock from the EDA, Dennis Pawlek from the GDA, and Jan Mortimer from the NZDA. I look forward to receiving the others in due course. The closing date for entries is 10 August, being 2 months before the event is due to start.

Igor, thanks a lot for clarification and updating list !

The great news are - Dr. Beckwith finally find an opportunity to come and attend the tournament in Prague, and I am really very happy with this.

United States will be represented in Prague perhaps the best and strongest group, including young players like R. Beckwith, C. Nash, M. Holmes, and also such experienced and strong player as James Morrison, 2 times USA National GAYP winner, and 2 times - World Championship contender.

I still didn't find on the list youths from ACF and ICHF, but I believe this will be finalize soon.

Follow official results - Ryan Pronk and Corey Modich are eligible to be endorse, depends on their ability and intention :)

I hope that Lindus Edwards will go as it would be a wonderful story if he would win it and show Ron King that the players in his family are not as bad as the result vs Lindus late father shown years ago.

Have the Durydev's been informed / invited? As per WCDF wildcard procedures.

Added By Dennis Pawlek ( On Thu 07/07/05 1622BST:
I believe not but I have to admit I wouldn't know how to inform them as I have no email or address of them and I'm not sure if they are EDA member if so then John Reade has surely a contact address as he keeps all addressees for the EDA Journal.
