    Hi All,

    I have been waiting for the early bird time to expire which it now has for the Open. I am preparing for the schools this weekend but on 6th December I will send ******** the updated entries. At the moment we have about 60 confirmed entries for the Lidums Australian Open Chess Championship which is about where I was hoping to be at this stage in the Entry Cycle.

    Regards
    George Howard

    Hi All,

    The Australian Schools Finals were a great success - congratulations to the entire team of Jenni,Charles,Garvin with some help from me in staging a brilliant event!!

    A few things however need to be spoken of. When everybody was there on friday night people all wanted to be fed for not much money and all between 6 - 7 pm. Therefore they needed to feed about 150 plus folks cheaply and in a hurry. Food was prepared which is not normally prepared in the restaraunt by the chef to satisfy the demands of bulk and extreme speed. Some adults / children did not like the food quality - they could have eaten at the restaraunt after making a booking as folks do in restaraunts and they would have got food of brilliant quality.

    The Mercure Grand Chalet puts on a full menu that the Chef chooses for the day / week but they also do carveries or other specialist needs if there are enough folks. On the last evening 75 folks decided they would eat elsewhere in another location on the mountain - what the 75 people did not realise is that the food consumed at this other place is sourced from the same place as that of Mercure and the Chef used was in fact the Mercure Grand Chalet Chef.
    So these 75 folks gained nothing other than upsetting the principal sponsors.

    The Mercure Grand Chalet supplied snacks and lunches to the children and did many things extra for the participants and their guests which are not normally done by the Chalet- they supplied an excellent barbecue on Saturday evening but some folks went for seconds and thirds before others had had anything to eat at all.

    I ask all participants in the Lidums Open and Australian Junior to work WITH the major sponsor. They have demonstrated that they will do many extra things for us and be extremely helpful and if folks want something different or something is not to the liking of guests they will move heaven and earth to satisfy the demands of their clients. If however they are not told of issues how can they rectify them.

    Some commonsense from folks would be appreciated and the Mercure Grand Chalet are firmly committed to providing the very best service and quality food possible on the mountain. They will certainly not try again to satisfy 150 plus folks in what is an unreasonable timeframe and I have asked them not to try to do so as it is unreasonable of people to expect 150 plus gourmet quality meals all to be served up in an hour for $7.50 a head.

    That is the end of my gripe but please remember the Mercure Grand Chalet wants everything to be fantastic for us but you have to work with them and inform them if any issues dealing with the Mercure Grand Chalet need to be addressed.

    Hello everyone,

    REGARDING THE LIDUMS AUSTRALIAN OPEN-

    Due to the short time that the online entries have been available and some uncertainty regarding where to send mail entries to and who to make them out to, we are EXTENDING the closing date by one week till the 22nd.

    This means that online entries can be made until the 22nd and postal entries must be recieved by the organising committee by the 22nd.

    Cheers,

    Garvin Gray

    Hello everyone again,

    I am currently posting the current list of entries for all tournaments except the minor(we are still confirming things so no point posting list of entrants just yet, will be up in next couple of days) in rating order that we are aware of at this stage. If you believe there is an error(which there probably is), dont hesistate to point it out so we can confirm the error and change it.

    Your assistance is much appreciated.


    Cheers,

    Update on buses,

    A 22 seat bus will run from Mt Buller to Mansfield, stay in Mansfield for one hour then come back on the following dates.

    Fri 14 Sun 16 Tue 18.

    The buses will leave Buller at 10 am and leave Mansfield for Buller at 12.00

    These buses were to provide a food shuttle service and I hope that carers from various states can perhaps get orders for food etc.from each state.
    Of course there is the Supermarket Box service where for $3.30 extra they will deliver to Mt Buller a box full of food.
    This service can be accessed by fax 57751773 or phone 57752255 or by email foodworksmansfield@reddrop.com.au.
    I have a whole pad of orderforms for this service but really ordering what you want paying by credit card then enjoy the food when it arrives is the way to go.

    Cheers,

    Wayward Bus helps out..

    Ralph the owner of Wayward Bus Touring Company in Adelaide has decided to put on a free bus transport to Mt Buller and back for the Lidums Australian Open Chess Championships!

    It will leave early in the morning on 27th December from outside his
    business on Waymouth St.

    Five of the 19 places have been booked already by tournament officials. This leaves 14 places available for SA players (players only) - to book complete the Entry Form for the Championship - pay the Entry Fee then go to Wayward Bus Company and book your free return ticket. First in best dressed.

    Ralph has also kindly agreed to provide his luxurious recliner seat bus as
    the free shuttle bus during the Lidums Open up and down the mountain.
