Women European Championships.
Austria, Germany and Switzerland intend to participate. There is a preference for playing in September or October. Germany prefers the event to take place between September 13 and October 31. Austria prefers to play in September.

Denmark is reluctant to participate due to the financial costs of participating. Poland would like to participate but needs financial support from the Polish Ministry of Sport.

Switzerland suggests that the event only takes place every 2 years if not more than 4 teams will participate.

The working group should then present a report at the next AGM 2010. Please report the name of your representative for the working group.
