Another ESNA meeting took place and this time was held in Batumi, Georgia on the 27th of September 2018, during the chess olympiad.
The discussion focused mainly on forthcoming events and San Marino gave some practical info on travel etc. They had already sent by email all info concerning the European Small Nations Team Championship 2019.
Forthcoming Events of ESNA:
