The night before Christmas is the time to make your wishes... what do you wish for?

ChessClub.com.au (http://www.ChessClub.com.au) is the new information hub for chess players and chess clubs in Victoria.

It is targeted at Chess Players rated between 1200 and 2000 - so we need your feedback...what do you want to see on this website? Calendars, ratings, club news, results, pictures, annotated games?

It has been setup to enable information sharing quickly, easily and most importantly by ANYONE at all - regardless of technical knowledge. If you would like to become a contributor (or just learn more about websites) please register for

If there is enough interest from players participating in the Canterbury Summer Swiss then we'll move the venue to the Box Hill Chess Club (with permission from the club of course)....the training is scheduled to fall conveniently between rounds.

If you can't make it in person then you can attend the Virtual Training online.

This free training session will show you how to :
a) Use ChessClub.com.au (http://www.ChessClub.com.au) for your own information
b) Become a contributor and upload reports, results, pictures or games
c) Update your Club Calendar
d) Integrate your Club Calendar on your own website

Every club will have:
a) A web-page on ChessClub.com.au (http://www.chessclub.com.au)
b) A calendar linked onto ChessClub.com.au (http://www.chessclub.com.au)
c) The option of having their very own full website at clubname.chessclub.com.au using the same software as used for ChessClub.com.au (http://www.chessclub.com.au) and designed by ChessClub (but fully customizable by individual clubs).

The site is completely free for users and clubs. It is maintained thanks to Chess World and provides opportunities for visitors to purchase chess books, software and other chess products online.

None of the above.

I want to see live Australian chess games in real time and training videos by Australian masters (e.g. like ICC does but with Rogers etc).

All the other stuff (including buying stuff) can be found elsewhere.

A big wish list I know but it is Christmas and Santa has very talented elves.

Not everyone would be big enough to overlook their defeat at a democratic election, and take over the running of Victorian Chess anyway. Chessguru is to be commended.

I totally agree! I think that the site is excellent and easy to use. Ive already put some MCC stuff onto it and I encourage other clubs to do the same - its essentially free advertising.... Hats off to David Cordover!
