Concession applies to pensioners, unemployed and full-time students.
Payments can be made by EFT to the bank account of Ballarat Chess Club, BSB 182 512 number 963 263 561.
Alternatively use the following TryBooking link https://www.trybooking.com/BUUKT where you can use a credit card.
Early entry is recommended to guarantee a place in the event.
If the event is cancelled, then all entry fees will be refunded. Any player who notifies that they are a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case or is feeling unwell and needs to
withdraw before 9:00am Saturday November 27 will receive a refund.

Rate of Play: All moves in 60 minutes per player plus an increment of 30 seconds per move from move 1. All moves of each game should be recorded.

Half Point Bye: A player may request a single Half Point Bye in rounds 1 to 4. This must be done in writing, email or text message prior to the tournament or before the start of the previous round.


There will be some mandatory restrictions which we need to adopt to be able to provide as safe as possible a venue for all players, accompanying persons and spectators.
Maximum numbers: The maximum number of persons permitted at the St Mary’s Terrace Community Hub will be 40. We will have 2 playing rooms available so as tables can be spaced appropriately to comply with density quotient and social distancing requirements.
Requirement to register with QR code: All visitors to the playing venue will be required to register with a QR code. If a person does not have a mobile phone with them then a manual registration form will be available.
Requirement to be fully vaccinated: Entry to the venue will be restricted to people who are fully vaccinated by the date of the event. The only exceptions permitted to this will be for persons under 16 years of age and those who have provided a written exemption to vaccination from their GP.
Requirement to wear a face mask: Everyone will be required to wear a face mask when indoors, including whilst playing their games. There are limited exemptions here mainly relating to children under 12 years of age.

The Committee is of the view that that it has a duty of care and responsibility to provide as safe an environment as possible at the venue for all players, accompanying persons and spectators. It is possible that some players may choose not to enter due to these measures, however we expect that others, possibly more, will be comforted by these safeguards being in place and will choose to participate.

The championships will be hosted by the Geelong Chess Club and will be held in the same venue as last year - St Mary’s Terrace Community Hub at 193 Myers Street, Geelong. The Committee has been in discussions with Geoffrey Gill and Mio Ristic from the Geelong Chess Club and we thank them for their assistance in organising the venue and also sponsorship for the event by Geelong Short Stays. This sponsorship will help cover part of the venue cost.

As there will be restricted entries we encourage everyone who is considering competing to pay their entry fee in advance. This can be done by EFT to the nominated bank account or at the TryBooking link as shown on the attached flyer and entry form. If anyone decides to pay on the day then not only will they miss out on the early-bird discount, but they could be excluded due to maximum participant restrictions. If for any reason the event has to be cancelled then all entry fees which have been paid will be refunded. Further if a player notifies that they are a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case or is feeling unwell and needs to withdraw before 9:00 am on Saturday 27th November then they will receive a refund.

We appreciate the sponsorship of Geelong Short Stays and suggest that they be contacted for any accommodation requirements. Telephone 0407 711 707, email accom.in.geelong@outlook.com or visit their website at www.geelongshortstays.com.au Don’t forget to say ‘GCC sent me’ on any emails sent to Jon at Geelong Short Stays.

Murtoa is a small wheatbelt town in the Wimmera. It is notable for its wide streets, its interesting 19th century buildings, (Wiki)
One of the Australian/Russian chess players, when asked what he thinks about Australian chess (this was back in the early 1990s') that in Russia in every village - we have ''our own Johansen''. Now Australia can say that we have FMs even small wheatbelt towns!

A couple of updates:

The easing of COVID restrictions in Victoria to Phase D means that the only restriction will be that players need to provide proof of double vaccination status and use the check in code - wearing of masks while at the board will be optional.
