    I sent a good friend, and member of The CFC, an email asking what is going on.
    From the emails, I am guessing many players are not happy with it politically speaking.
    I'll see what my fellow butcher/chess player has to say aboot it. eh

    Their website appears to indicate they're busily going broke, and as a result are trying to restructure in order to keep going. There's a few links to explanatory documents there.

    Here's what he had to say:

    what this issue comes down to is this, the guy who runs the cfc hired a guy to do an online magazine. he didn't ask the committee first, then the committee shot down the idea. the guy who was hired is now suing the cfc he had to sign contracts to do the job.... these guys are just screwed.... just one thing after another...

    The USCF is also wrestling with at least one, maybe two lawsuits, financial problems, and declining adult membership. Is it something in the North American water?

    It must be a universal problem.
