With this year’s Annual Meeting WOF also give a big thanks to Tor Birger Skogen who is resigning as WOF President. Tor Birger has been WOF President since 2012. Those years were special, with big changes in the Othello world and ownerships. Tor Birger has been a steadfast rock when there has beens some turbulence, as new ownership for othello and two years with many issues. Also WOC issues as 2013 lacking any sponsorship from companies, 2018 the Hong Kong riots and huridly moving WOC to Tokyo in 21 days. And this year when WOC is cancelled because of Corona. WOF would like to thank Tor Birger warmly for these eight years!
