    You can negotiate with Malcolm over team names, he will be your captain and team mate.

    You've also got Jesse Jager, and I'm waiting on Guy West and Bill Jordan. If these guys don't come through you may get lumbered with some duffer like me

    Not sure of other teams...Box Hill will field a strong first team, Noble Park and Serbia also will have pretty good teams, and there might be a pretty decent Melbourne Uni team if they can get their act together.

    I thought Guy West would be going to Croydon...meh.
    And what about Teichmann?

    No divisions this year, just one big swiss, but next year there are plans for divisions. Still, there will be teams of all strengths, not just the very strong.

    Croydon don't seem to be fielding a team, otherwise Guy would probably play for them. Teichmann doesn't want to play league chess, and there are others who also don't want to play team chess.

    At the CV presidents meeting in early 2009, we agreed on a name "Melbourne Chess Club Lions", so the best MCC team has that option - or it could be the name used for all of the MCC teams together.

    Hi Grant,

    In SA we have had regular interclub matches winter and spring since adam was a boy. One year Adelaide Uni had a number of teams which were called after cheeses (thats right different cheeses) another time after wine. I guess you had to be there - or was it just an Adelaide thing.

    Regards
    George

    There are other clubs as well....Serbia, Noble Park, Frankston, Hobson's Bay who I believe are all putting teams in. Geelong, Melbourne Uni, Ranges and Croydon are all yet to decide. And both box hill/canterbury and mcc will be putting multiple teams in. I can't speak for BHCC, but MCC will have at least 4 teams.

    And then, of course, there may be teams of players who don't have a club alignment....
