The first classic time control Croydon tournament for the year starts in a week's time.

This year we are calling our tournaments after club members so we have named this one ‘The Waller’ after the popular and much appreciated Croydon CC founding member, Tony Waller, who moved up north last year.

It is ACF rated and runs over 5 Thursday evenings, with play beginning Thursday 25th February at 7:45pm. at the Croydon RSL.

The time control is 60 mins + 30 sec. All games will be published on the Croydon CC website.

Director of Play is IM Guy West. Guy can be contacted on 0402 083 654.

Players intending to enter this tournament should register by 7:30 pm sharp with play commencing at 7:45 pm. Anyone allowed to enter after 7:30 pm will be randomly paired against other latecomers. The field will be closed once round 1 has been completed (no mid-tournament entries.) Postponements will be available with the consent of your opponent and the Director of Play. Players entering the tournament are expected to complete the tournament unless they have valid reasons to withdraw, approved in advance by the DOP.

(Guy is trying to change the culture of tournaments to further improve the standard of chess etiquette at the club – he comes from the Jamieson era! :))

The forfeit time for games will be 30 minutes.

The entry fee is $10 for members. As in the past, we require membership in order to play in our regular tournaments (not our Grand Prix weekender or Open of course).

Club Membership
-- $60.00 / year for seniors
-- $40.00 / year for juniors
---- $20.00 / year for 2nd junior
---- additional juniors free
Croydon has regular club tournaments (as well as blitz nights and training workshops) throughout the year and membership is well worth it.

See the calendar on our website for more details: http://www.croydonchess.com/Calendar/tabid/55/language/en-AU/Default.aspx

Detailed contact and venue details can also be found at our website. Look forward to seeing all the familiar faces and some new ones.

NOTE: If you'd like to visit the club before this, tomorrow evening 18th Feb starting at 7:45 pm we'll have a 7 round blitz event (5 min a game.) This is always a fun night.

Cool Jean and congrats - I did not realise that that Guy guy had put a rock on your finger:) I could add a chessy chess reference here, but..nah! Will the wedding be a black and white affair? May any checkered times only be OTB.

Nice win by you Jean! Reg is no pushover and has claimed some big scalps in the past.

There were some exciting games this round so I'll post one or two if I get a moment. It was great to see newcomer Steve Scott register his first win at the club (although I almost always support Pearl in any given game, it was good to see him get his first win! A nice win too.)

I've just realised that I haven't explained why I haven't put up the final results. The board one game was postponed so once that is played, I'll post all the results and one or two games. :)
