i am so proud of our Elwood tourny (being involved from the onset...tho not any more) but I am disappointed at the decision to appoint an arbiter from interstate.....let us keep our individuality and identity and support our local chess community.
WHY is it necessary to import arbiters for an event held in Victoria?

I completely agree with this sentiment.

In my last months on the CAQ, I tried to promote this concept for Queensland. I departed before the issue was resolved. The matter arose after one too many interstate arbiters replaced Garvin and ors.

BTW max respect to the Bekker. Big fan.

Well thank you...I would love to see all play from interstate but as a host state I would really like to see a home front (If you get my meaning)

Just recapping my beliefs offered in a frenzied shoutbox dialogue:

1. Re: Implementation of the local arbiters for local events idea
For sure, but let's make it uniform across the country, else the argument just follows each tournament as it occurs.

2. Re: This particular instance of Victorians looking for accountability
For sure, but only once the policy has been adopted, else it is retrospective; and given that the policy (of using interstate arbiters) is presently widespread and operates throughout Australia, a retrospective enquiry would be without foundation.

I'm yet to detect a shred of support from you for that tournament in that thread. Is this an academic discussion, axe to grind, or do you actually care?


Barboros was the original mover and shaker for this tourny...I have always thought of it as HIS...


Why do we have someone from interstate to arbit a victorian event?


So no one from Victoria would arbit?

Not sure what you mean by "support". Mischa has supported the event in the past by operating the canteen which is on the public record here.

I put two of them in the oven. The first one said to the second, "it is HOT in here!", the second said "Holy crap! A talking muffin!".

Hello everyone, and mostly Boris:

Please make of this what you will but it seems a fairly resounding praise of Mischa in her role as a supporter of the Bendigo Bank weekender:

Watto: Yes, I agree with that. Well run, friendly and a great selection of food. Thanks and congrats to yourself and everyone involved, Mischa.

Michael Baron: It is people like Mischa who make the chess tournaments and other community events happen. I can only admire someone who devotes her weekend to give the chess-players a helping hand



and from Heavyknight: Some of the positive points of the tournament.
Hi all,
I would like to congratulate all for their tireless efforts to make the tournament a success! In my humble opinion the highlights of the tournament were provided by:
I) Bendigo Bank for their continuous support to the tournament
II) Elwood Chess Club (good to see my old smiling friends Yuri and Met)
III) Canteen team who did their best to help participants during all days and times of the tournament.




Mischa: thanks all for the thanks...but I have to admit that Terry Morris deserves it more...

Michael B again Well..lets just say it was a team performance of the Morris family



Met: I will thank following for their contribution:

Bendigo Bank
Chess World
Chess Ideas

Igor Goldenberg Organiser
Barboros Kara Organiser

Dennis Au Assistant
Mitchell Faircloth Guitar-player(remember him on 3RRR Punter to Punter)

Hi All,

I spoke with Heindrik Tabatt from Germany during the week, and spoke to him about the 2008 Bendigo Bank tournamnet- and we looked back at 2006 and both cried- he won and I came some where down the field. The main reason for this was that I spent most of the time in the kitchen( also lack of chess skill), eating the delicious sangas mr and Mrs Morris had prepaired, having a chat about chess, and entertaining the kids- it was an excellent atmosphere- Not much chaged this year, although Mr Morris seemed to be wearing the apron a little more often this time around-Last year and this year I forgot to mention them in the closing speeches, So I will make a special open ended promise to them " next year I promise to............." you can fill l in the blanks- it can be a dare , anything within reason- and the most voted thing to do will become reality

The canteen is not run to make money but to provide food and drink for players and guests- so all the time and effort that Mr and Mrs M put in - is for chess and the Elwood Bendigo Bank tournament- so Thankyou so much

Barboros



Seems a fairly universal view on her involvement in this event? what do others think?

I know what my opinion is, that Mischa has been an integral part of establishing this event as one of the finest in the Australian chess calendar? any naysayers?

Take care and God Bless, Macavity

Hi Tic, Mischa was classified as gifted whilst young and she still is!! that is where the chess talent amongst many that James and India possess respectively arise from....and if Mischa played, the kitchen would not compare by half!! that would be too great a cost!!

What's wrong with that? If you're organising a tournament and an experienced arbiter offers to direct, it would be churlish to turn him down on the basis that he is from interstate..
