[/CODE]

Incorrect as far as I am aware. There has been in the past a guarantee against prize money. This has only applied to events that meet certain criteria (such as ACF categories when the ACF Grand Prix was around).

I'll chase up relevant motions that have been passed by CAQ to double check exactly what is in place.

Afitz
04-12-2020, 12:59 PM
The wording I found in a previous motion is:

Motion (Council):That CAQ approve the recommendation of the AGM, which was passed as the following motion at the AGM, and also extend this policy to similarly support all ACF Grand Prix Class 4 or Class 5 Events for the remainder of 2018:

Motion: That this 2017 CAQ AGM recommends that the CAQ support the 2018 FIDE Open at the Hinterland Hotel in Nerang from January 25-28 by guaranteeing Grandmasters or Women Grandmasters who enter this event and complete the event with a $500 guarantee against prizemoney. If a Grandmaster or Womens Grandmaster wins $500 or more in prizemoney, then no CAQ payment would be added.

I will have to keep digging for other documents.

CAQ will definitely reimburse tournament organisers the cost of free entries for GM/WGM/IM/WIM upon email application to Byran Moss - caq.treasurer@gmail.com. You are also eligible for the South-East Queensland $200 subsidy for running the weekender.

Hi All, my mistake the $500 CAQ subsidy for GM’s is for FIDE events only so it will not apply in this instance. It is free entry for any GM/WGM/IM/WIM’s. Regardless, first 72 players to register and pay will be in! I am fairly certain I will be turning away players. Cheers

Very tempting but not sure I can handle QLD summer heat in a school hall with no air con.....That was an issue for at least one player in last year's event as well, and this is the organiser's response (from the relevant thread):

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a safe and merry Xmas! I appreciate the feedback and I will work on improving for future events. I understand QLD weather is very hot and I will take this all in stride, as I have only ever acted in the best interest of the chess community. Providing opportunities for chess in Australia to thrive and grow is my greatest mission!

Due to the large turnout, I had to secure a bigger space and Buranda State School was the best available. There was a lot of work that went into all of this, so please consider the great lengths it takes to run and organise such an event. I had plenty of inquiry’s about air con and was always honest with those and mentioned that there’s two industrial fans and bottled water. From the 95 participants, I have heard one formal complaint about the heat. Nevertheless, if there is anything further I can do to help, please let me know. If anyone wishes to discuss this further, please email me at alexstahnke@topchess.com.au. I will no longer be responding to this thread.

Until next time, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Cheers, Alex.

Reading the thread did make me a little nostalgic for the 'good old days' when the worse thing that an OTB chess tournament had to worry about was hot weather :(

I will just add that aside from GM/WGM/IM/WIM entry fees (and as Andrew has said above, even the reimbursement of these entry fees is subject to the CAQ Treasurer, Bryan Moss, receiving an application by email), any additional financial support would need to be requested from the CAQ Council via a (written) proposal. In most recent cases, from memory, such CAQ support has been confined to FIDE rated events, which have a few more formal requirements. Alex, I would happily discuss this with you over email if you would like.

Another item that some prospective players might be interested in knowing.

Being that this event is being held in December, do those who pay the CAQ Membership of $20 have their membership carried over to 2021?

Yes, I believe that it is carried over.

Patrick Byrom
06-12-2020, 01:15 PM
Yes, I believe that it is carried over.It is (from the CAQ website (https://caq.org.au/membership/)):

Memberships lapse on 31 December each year, when renewal is necessary, except that new members joining on or after 1 October in any year shall remain financial members until 31 December of the following year.

Very tempting but not sure I can handle QLD summer heat in a school hall with no air con.....

This year is capped at 72 players and there will be adequate spacing of tables. There's industrial fans and I have also hired extras to keep the peace. Should be a great time!

Thanks for the updates. How were the players in each division chosen - the split doesn't appear to be by rating?

Thanks for the updates. How were the players in each division chosen - the split doesn't appear to be by rating?

Agreed. Information earlier in this thread speculated that the two divisions would be divided at Rating of 1350.

If that is the case, what is Martin Post doing in the Challengers section with a rating of 1751! and Aiden Brady of 1633!!

I have not checked any further on other players ratings.
