The board had a short meeting today, (draft minutes at https://docs.google.com/View?id=dd9g3qjp_75n79q2ggz ),
The tied election result was decided by tossing a coin as this was considered fairest to both candidates.
I therefore have pleasure in announcing Oliver Kühn as the third elected board member in this year's election.
As this will almost certainly be my last message as Secretary, I wish the new board well and assure them of my continued support.
