ANNOUNCING NOVA 2014!
NOVA 2014 will again be held as a Team Correspondence Tournament. It will be organized in the same manner as NOVA 2013, the rules for which are still posted. Entries will be accepted through January 31, 2014. NOVA 2013 had 20 entries forming five Teams. I hope to do at least that well for NOVA 2014. Post entires as part of this post. Enter today! You will only be obligating yourself for from four to six games.
 
Entry List
 
1. WizardNo1
2. Bartvinnik
3. SPYponders
4. Grim
5. Blue
6. JJStack
7. Spud
8. Zugzwanger
9. Azathoth
10. youmayresign
11. atena
12. DualSpace
13. bueno
14. Sir
15. DaKaBa
16. addy
 
With only three days left, it is obvious that we are not going to get
enough entries for a 5th Team, so I am closing Registration now with
the 4 Full Teams we have. This Event will be a Team event with the
winner being determined by Team ponts. The tiebreak will be Game points.
Two games will be contested between the players on corresponding
Boards on each Team. one with White and one with Black, so every
Player will have 6 games. Players of White should challenge their
opponents at the standard Caissa time control. The organization
and pairings in this Event will be posted under NOVA 2014 Teams
And Pairings, a Post on this Board. This Post will appear no later
than Wednesday, January 29, 2014.

You know things on Caissa are just not right
When we don't have TrencherKnight
If I could, I would purchase this whole Site
And improve it, just a mite

Alas, more than a mite is needed
This site is dire, that is conceded
With good intentions it might yet be saved
Although that's how the road to Hell is paved

Re: ANNOUNCING NOVA 2014!
That this site, lacks bite ..
 
is a 'No brainer'
 
And what we need ..
 
Involves, More saner
 
When leadership foresight is lacking ..
 
Is it any wonder, there's less 'backing'
 
If, the administration here ..
 
Would only ministrate ..
 
Like days of yore ..
 
And offer free memberships ..
 
to those who've 'gone on' before ..
 
the dearth of individual posts ..
 
And having this line, end in 'coasts'
 
It's really more involved, you see ..
 
Which may involve a lower fee ..
 
But, I'm just one ..
 
With my 'misc.' posts .. as my gun
 
'It takes a village,' as has been said ..
 
Yet, thus far .. the only consensus ..
 
Is one, of dread
 
This 'patter' of mine, has gone on, for too long ..
 
And, therefore I'll bid everyone ..
 
An all too brief .. 'so long.' ..{for 'more-than-a-few'.. At any rate} --
