The entries are coming in albeit slowly. The most prominent entry so far is FM Bobby Cheng followed closely by the intrepid Karl Zelesco!

For this tournament the organizers have gone back to the traditional forfeit time of one hour. The shorter time we found too stressful for the arbiter, let alone the players

I understand (i) this tournament is part of the 2010 Grand Prix (ii) all 2010 Grand Prix tournaments are supposed to have 1/2 hour forfeit time.

I am sure they will show the generosity of flexibility they have demonstrated in the past

Gerry - this an ACF rule.

Which generous flexible ACF person have you come across before? If you spill the beans he may get voted out! :eek:

Hehe I discovered (late) in life that generosity and chess are mutually exlusive. There is only one exception and that's yourself! At least someone (you) will acknowledge it and someone (you again) will rip the benefits! I will be in Gold Coast for the duration, (part of being generous to myself) so I can't play, but I strongly encourage everyone to do so. It's going to be a great tournament, so enjoy it!

I thought they were just guidelines like ACF by-laws there to be broken.
Brian we may just let it hang in.
Elliott would you mind not advertising tournaments in direct competition with our Canterbury Summers swiss on Box Hill threads

Excuse me? Do you consider this

Directly promoting Canterbury Summer Swiss as advertising tournaments against it?

I thought they were just guidelines like ACF by-laws there to be broken.

ACF By-laws can be waived with the permission of the ACF, but that's a different thing from breaking them without it.

Frankly I'm surprised you have any problems with 1/2 hour - do you have an unusually disorganised chess clientele in your neck of the proverbial woods, and if so, don't you think that encouraging them not to be over 30 minutes late might be worth doing however much stress it incurs in the short term?

And please don't whinge about your tournament thread getting derailed or whatever - you wanted to use it to make silly claims about ACF by-laws.

The entry list has now reached forty with quite a few unrated entries[mainly junior players] As there is no prize for the unrated group, unrated players will be rated provisionally at the start of the tournament and will have this provisional rating adjusted at the completion of round 3

With a good entry guaranteed this is the tournament to finish the year.

1) field ranging from IM's to novices

2) great car parking

3) close to public transport

4) three boards live to the internet.

Maybe even the cricket on the TV in the kitchen

Parking may be easy but there are restrictions. Best place to park is at the railway car park just across Canterbury Road from Rochester Road. This time of the year there is plenty of room

One of the exiting things when organising a tournament at the Box Hill Chess club is you never quite know what is is going to happen next. Here was one that went the other way Tom Narenthran [father of Janaki and Savithri] v Bobby Cheng 1/2-1/2
