First of All let me tell you fantastic news

We are hoping that like in term 2 tournament we could secure entries from international masters/players over 2200 strength

We are also hoping that at the end of the year we can conduct the tournament where 4 masters (2200 rating plus) play 4 challenges (under 2000 rating) Each challenger play each master twice so challenges will have 8 games against masters. Out of 4 challenges two players are by invitation and two other players will have an opportunity to be qualified form term 3 and term 4 St Kilda GP tournaments.

1. At Kilda needs to be changed to St Kilda (all instances), as well as form to from in "qualified form term 3"
2. What about one of the 4 tournaments of the year being a club championship? It doesn't have to be starting from this year.
