Correction: Free Allegro for EVERYONE!

Hi all,

Thanks to a media opportunity organised by Elizabeth Warren and the M.C.C sub-committee for the Australian Junior Championships 2012, this Saturday the 24th of September the allegro will be on for free!

Bruce Walsh, from the True Blue News Network (TBNN) will be interviewing junior chess players at the Melbourne Chess Club Allegro from 1.30pm onwards (Allegro starts 2pm). The interview is planned to be part of a documentary broadcast throughout Australia on channel 31. This is a piece on Australian junior's not on MCC, so ideally he would like to interview notable juniors who are not MCC members as well.

You don't have to be an MCC member to come along, enjoy some quality allegro and be part of the fun. The $5 visitors fee for non-members will be waived for any juniors coming along to the allegro on the day.

Hope to see a big turnout!!

Juniors can compete in the MCC allegro for $5, making this the cheapest regular quality allegro in Australia. Rating prizes also available.

Great initiative from the MCC and great work from the committee, particularly Elizabeth, for arranging this.

However, Paul, I am confused by the wording of your post - when you refer to a "free allegro day for junior players", do you mean that the allegro is "open" to all juniors, or do you means it is "free of entry fees" to all juniors?

A few other things in your post to clarify:

- Will there be a free allegro for juniors separate from the regular MCC Saturday allegro? That is somewhat implied when you couple the statement "free allegro day for junior players" with the statement "Juniors can compete in the MCC allegro for $5".
- If the free junior allegro and the regular MCC allegro are separate tournaments, will they be run concurrently or will the junior allegro start before the regular MCC allegro?
- If the junior allegro and the regular MCC allegro are not separate tournaments, will the MCC consider also waiving the entry fee for junior players?

Hi again!
To correct my woefully worded first post: (I copy/pasted an earlier proposal from our committee emails :wall: :confused: )

To answer your questions NRMA there will be one allegro as normal and, not only will it be totally free for juniors, it will now be...

TOTALLY FREE FOR EVERYONE!!

That's right, Allegro is on completely free this weekend with the MCC footing bill. Come along, bring the kids and enjoy what should be a nice atmosphere.

Prizes and rating prizes will be calculated as usual from the number of entries!

Starts 2pm sharp, be there early!
