    Hi All,

    I just received the equivalent of 240 reams of paper as brochures - these will be sent out to all clubs and chess organisations as well as state/territory chess bodies in Australia as soon as is practicable.

    Regards
    George Howard

    Hi All,

    Apart from some Victorian Clubs for which I am trying to get addresses I have sent out the brochures for Lidums Australian Open Chess Championship and Hospitality Textiles Tony Collyer Pty Ltd Australian Junior Chess Championships to all clubs in Australia or in case of Canberra and Queensland a central person. They should arrive today or early next week.

    The cost of printing these brochures does not impinge on the bottom line but have been produced by Independent Distillers as a result of the sponsorship arrangements.

    If any club or any chess organisation wishes to get extra copies please dont hesitate to send me an email at georgeshoward@hotmail.com and I will forward you the number you require.

    Paul Campbell from SA also helped as did Brian Jones not to mention Andrew and Alex Saint - thanks !!

    Hi All,

    A number of people have raised a concern about the end of the Junior and the prizegiving time. It seems most people would prefer an early start for the older children for the last round in line with the U12 so that the prizegiving could be in the afternoon rather than the evening.

    This seems very sensible so we will make such a change and we will post the details shortly.

    Hi All,

    The three Italian players being brought to the Lidums Open were requested by Mercure Grand and are being paid for separately by Mr Grollo because they are Italian - he wanted Italian titled players here and so committed extra resources.

    Funding for the Italians does not come from the tournament budget - only GM's are being given financial assistance apart from free entry to play in the Lidums Open.

    hi all,

    Some parents are starting to realise the value of staying at the Mercure Grand Chalet during the Junior.

    The free coaching available ONLY to children staying at Mercure will guarantee I think a full Mercure Grand Chalet for the Junior. SO parents fair warning - if you want your children to stay in luxury at a very discounted rate and receive FREE coaching from two world class coaches book at the Mercure for the Juniors NOW!!!

    Hello Everyone,

    Wasnt sure where to type this, so as it applies to all the mt buller tournaments, here seemed right.

    I have done some research on the average daily temperatures at mount buller during December and January.

    December:

    The average daily temperature: 14.7 degrees
    The average nightly temperature: 6.2 degrees

    January:

    The average daily temperature is 16 degrees
    The average nightly temperature is 7 degrees.

    Some days/nights even have minus temperatures on average.

    So my advice, pack your warm clothes. There has not been one day on record of over 30 degrees.

    All cheques for entry can be made out to either:
    Mt Buller Chess or Mt Buller Chess Tourneys - both are fine for the cheques but Mt Buller Chess Tourneys would be preferred (definitely not ACF).

    Hi All,

    Well Mt Buller is winning me over very fast as a place. Drove home tonight after seeing a friend who lives near Jerijig (I hope I spelt it correctly) and on the drive home saw kangaroos rabbits and the biggest buck deer with full antlers - it was pretty amazing!

    For those interested the chalet has booked a four piece Irish band to play New Years eve. Sounds like a lively night will be had by all but perhaps we can ask our Italian friend to play on the grand piano for us.

    Tell everyone its going to be serious chess but also a very friendly group in stunning surroundings!

    Regards
    George

    Hello Everyone,

    Regarding the non guest accessing mercure facilities-

    From Peter Richardson:

    >From 3 to 7 pm - our facilities are open for a fee to the public as our sports
    centre is co run by the Latrobe university. And this is part of our normal
    operation. The entry fee is collected by the attendant who mans the operation from 3 to 7 pm each day.
    The numbers are limited as our priority is always to our houseguests who do not pay any fees and have access from 7 am to 10 pm 7 days a week.
    We are also looking at extending our range of activities i.e. soccer balls, cricket sets, and can hire these out to non-guests - all house guests can access these at no charge -
    I am trying to find out from La Trobe what they are looking at doing.
