I've missed the last 3 but I've set a reminder and I will turn up for this one.

Note, however, that this tourney will not be on FICS (freechess.nl), and that you cannot automatically create an account on the ICS where the tourney is (winboard.nl), but have to PM me your e-mail address (and desired account name) so that I can create one.
