There is a call for applications for selection in the current Newsletter, but you have to be quick! Applications close June 5.

As some people may not be subscribed I also reproduce it below (but without links):

SELECTION NOTICE - Commonwealth Championships

25 June to 4 July 2018 New Delhi, India

The ACF is conducting selections to send one man, one woman, one Senior (Above-60), one Junior Girl (Under-20), one Junior Open (Under-20) player and one open and girl entries each in under-8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 as official entrants.

Players potentially interested in being selected should contact Selections Director Tom Saltmarsh at catowi@internode.on.net by 5 June 2018. Please also copy all applications to ACF Vice-President Kevin Bonham at k_bonham@tassie.net.au. The quick selections method (average of May 2018 ACF and FIDE ratings) will be used.

Selected players will be entitled to free board and lodging (on at triple share basis), but will have to pay an entry and registration fee.

Players who have not recently applied must supply all relevant information in Section 5.4 of the ACF Selections By-Laws. Players who have applied for other events recently will be asked to confirm their details. Applicants are also requested to advise whether they wish to participate regardless of whether selected.

All applicants must retain a copy of all emails they send and are responsible for ensuring that their email has been sent and received by the 5 June 2018 deadline. If an application has not been acknowledged within two days, please call Tom on 0499 996 559.
