The WFD Foundation will be organising a series of online tournaments for the winter months of December 2021, January 2022 and February 2022. The tournaments will take place on Lidraughts.org. The first tournament of the series is on Friday 17 December, the last one on Saturday 18 February.
There will be two tournaments each week. One of these (the Friday tournament) will be open to all, the other (the Saturday tournament) will be open to official WFD players only. In order to register as a WFD player, you will have to join the WFD Team on Lidraughts.org. This will only be possible with a username that matches your forename and surname (for example: LiuweWestra, i.e. two capitals, no spaces, underscores, or other symbols). The WFD Team membership requires an annual fee of €10.
The tournaments taking place in the odd weeks are FRYSK! tournaments (from 5 to 6 p.m. CET, time control 3 minutes and 3 seconds [Fischer]), the tournaments in the even weeks are Frisian Classic tournaments (from 5 to 6.30 p.m. CET, time control 5 minutes and 5 seconds [Fischer]).
The prize money for the open tournaments (on Fridays) is as follows.
1st place: €40
2nd place: €20
3rd place: €10
Furthermore, the highest player will get a free 2022 WFD Team membership as a bonus prize. If the highest player has already won this bonus, it will move on to the next player.
The prize money for the official WFD players tournaments (on Saturdays) is as follows.
1st place: €60
2nd place: €30
3rd place: €15

On 25 November 2021, for the first time, the St. Petersburg Open FRYSK! Championships will take place as an official WFD tournament. In addition to other prizes, the winner will receive €250 from the WFD Foundation as well as a ticket to the next official FRYSK! World Championships, which will hopefully be held on Sunday 27 February in Franeker.
The tournament is organised by Ruslan Peshcherov (Master FMJD), and will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. (GMT+3).
During the last WFD Foundation board meeting, Mr. Herbert Tulleken, who has been a board member for over four years, announced his resignation. We are thankful for everything he has done for the promotion of Frisian Draughts (or Ultimate Checkers, as he likes to call it) and for the growth of the foundation as a professional organisation.
