Post by rusms » Thu Aug 29, 2019 03:35

At the end of the organization and holding of the last competition (PWCE-III) indicated in the official Calendar 2017-2018, the former CPI FMJD considers it fulfilled its obligations to the public and problemists, as well as to the FMJD, which in due time selected and delegated CPI members to this work. After this competition, the ex-CPI FMJD finally ceases to function and resigns.
