Is there a list of entries so far?

I'v only seen a couple of entries so far: Thomas Hartwell and myself from Devonport. The 3 Beetons and the 2 Campbells are virtual certainties - beyond that: too early to tell.

I 'll let you know in a couple of days though, cheers!

I seem to remember playing Tai Packer before, i believe it was the tournament sponsored by Neville Ledger a while back.

Yes - Tai played in that 2014 event. He played his first tournament for a while last weekend - and beat me on time in R1 of the LCC Northern Champions. Here's the final crosstable of that event:

I can't make it either. Due to unforeseen circumstances my trip to Tassie has been postponed to the second week of Jan.
I can't play in the Aus champs in Sydney either. Apologies

In Round 2 Black was very low on time and in Round 4 ran out of time, Denis and I are equal first on 3.5/4, not sure about the rest of the standings so far.

A nice w/e of chess in Launceston - thanks to the untiring efforts of Kerry and Esther Beeton, and the spirit of friendship among the players. The presentations concluded with the announcement that John Patrick has been awarded the Glen Gibbs Memorial Award for 2019. Here are the final crosstables for both events:
