News from ICCF-US Friendly Matches from around the world - Issue 9, September 2014

Notice of Rules Change

An ICCF server update will occur in December that automatically sets all total time oversteps (CCLA Server rule 11) and 40 days/move oversteps (CCLA Rule 15) as forfeit losses. As soon as the overstep occurs, the result will be posted automatically by the server as a win in the crosstable for the waiting player. The win will be given a time overstep symbol. The TD will then determine and notify the players if the win is CCLA rated or unrated (CCLA Server rules 12 and 13). An unrated win may still be submitted for adjudication and CCLA rating consideration as is described in CCLA Rule 14.

It is recommended players stay current with all CCLA server rules.
