2020 Vikings Weekender - 21st and 22nd November


Please note the new (six-round) tournament schedule that has been necessitated to fit the Vikings Club Covid-restricted opening hours of 12pm on both days of the tournament.

Also, please don't forget that pre-registration AND PRE-PAYMENT of entry fees are required for this event (see IMPORTANT NOTE below). This is a Covid-related requirement to ensure we stay within venue capacity limits and to avoid the customary pre-Round 1 crowding.


The ACT Chess Association and the Tuggeranong Chess Club are holding the 2020 Vikings Weekender Chess Tournament on the 21st and 22nd November 2020. The venue is the Lanyon Club, Heidelberg St, Condor, ACT.

There is an Open section (all players are eligible) and an Under 1600 section. Both events will be 6 round tournaments with a time limit of 60m+10s per game. The tournament will be ACF rated (not FIDE rated) and entry restrictions and pairings will be based on ACF ratings as at 21 November.

Currently the following players have indicated an intention to play(ACF Ratings):

Pre-registration is strictly required for this event. At this stage there is a limit of 60 players total allowed. This is a Vikings Club stipulation to satisfy current Covid-19 restrictions. Interstate registrations are welcome on the understanding that changing pandemic circumstances might result in ultimate exclusion in such cases.


Registration:


Entries beyond the 60 player limit will be added to a wait list and there is every chance that by 21 November local Covid restrictions might be eased.


IMPORTANT NOTE: In fairness to all registrants we require that entry fees be paid at the time of registration (see below). Any unfinancial registrants at midnight Wednesday 18 November will be denied entry to the tournament. Pre-arranged exemptions might be possible (eg. no access to bank) but obviously must be approved before the cut off.


Please send your details and any queries to:


camcunningham8@gmail.com


Entry Fees:

$65
$45 Concession
$45 Junior (Under 18)
GM, IM, WGM, WIM Free


In addition, because this is an ACTCA event, you might need to pay ACTCA membership dues for 2020 ($25 or $15 juniors and concessionals). Because it so late in 2020 the ACTCA will grant late joiners an extension of their membership to end-2021, covering all 2021 ACTCA events including Lightning Championships, ACT Championships, ANU Open/Minor, Vikings Weekender, Rapid Championships and possible other tournaments.

Interstate registrants are expected to be members of their ACF-affiliated state associations.


Consistent with the strict pre-registration requirement we request all entry fees to be pre-paid. This will streamline start of play for Round 1 and help satisfy Covid distancing requirements. Should the tournament not proceed for any reason all fees will be promptly refunded.


Fees (including ACTCA membership) should be paid by direct bank transfer/deposit to the ACTCA account -


ACT Chess Association

BSB Code 062903

Account Number 00907972


Please ensure that you provide player’s name in the recipient’s description so that we know who has paid. Please direct any queries to the above email address.

Since yesterday's posting there has been a bit of a rush of new registrations including GM Anton Smirnov, currently an ACT resident while studying at ANU.

Other GM registrations are also in the wind, so the Open tournament is shaping up as a strong event.

There is still room for new registrations but please hasten and don't forget to pay.

We need to nail down numbers well in advance. This year, because of the COVID imposed cap of 60 players total, we want to ensure that anyone who might be prepared to fully commit (ie. financially) is not denied access because an unfinancial entrant is hogging a place.

Anyone intending to enter this event should do so ASAP. There's now over 40 entries with a 60 player cap.

See:http://tournaments.streetchess.net/vikings2020/ for updated entry lists in each division.

See:http://tournaments.streetchess.net/vikings2020/ for updated entry lists in each division.

Subsequently to the advice that there are 40 entries I can advise additional entries have been received and will be added to the list.

Please note that early payment is also required, the deadline being midnight Wednesday 18 November.

Should the 60 cap be exceeded before then there is scope to apply for the waiting list.

This is necessary to ensure that potential entrants are not dissuaded from entry, only to find that come the day of the tournament there are a bunch on 'no shows' - the bane of tournament organisers.

Organisers will audit entry fees and attempt to chase up non-payees - but any who fail to pay by the deadline will be excluded and their place allocated from the waiting list.

Current entries are as follows:

I have missed the Vikings. Here's some photographic memories on the way back to Melbourne from the tournament in 2015.
If we are allowed to travel interstate from Victoria by the w/e I will fly over, not to play of course but to drop in and say hi.

I've heard GM Moulthun Ly may be interested so I suggest the organisers hassle him into playing ;)

More players have sought entry than the Covid restrictions allow and if you are registered but no longer intend to play please advise organisers so that waitlisted players can join.
