    Hi Tony,

    Has the school co-ordinator been given the entry form and information? Gary Wastell has been given all information.

    As soon as the Mt Buller website is up, all teams will be put up on the website, as soon as I receive the formal entry.

    We would also like a school profile, so that we can put that up on the website as well.

    If you are organising the team and haven't received any info, perhaps you would like to contact Gary (or myself) and get the full info.

    regards,

    Jenni

    Australian Schools' Teams Championships

    Thanks Jenni,

    The School Co-ordinator will be organising the team entry when term resumes in a fortnight.

    I only have to drive the kids up the mountain.

    That's what parents are for - and to carry the luggage.

    Filling the Bye

    I am getting a few questions about how the bye is going to be handled for the Aus schools comps.

    It is specified in the info sheet, which has been posted in the Mt Buller section and also in the info sheet available on the web.

    However to summarise - obviously there aren't too many school teams available locally in Mt Buller to fill any bye which might occur in the various divisions of the schools comp.

    George Howard left it to me to decide how to do it and I chose a system proposed by Charles Zworestine who is going to DOP at the ASC in December.

    Basically the State that won its division in ASC 2003 (held in Perth Jan 2004) get to fill the bye if one occurs. Thus

    ACT fills Girls Primary
    QLD fills Girls Secondary
    NSW fills Open Primary
    NSW fills Open Secondary

    ACT and QLD both have team on standby to fill their byes. It is unlikely we will have a bye in the Open secondary and I have not talked to NSW as yet about the Open Primary.

    Congratulations to Worongary. They only qualified on Sunday, but have already booked their accommodation and sent me their entry and profile. They are definitely an administrator's dream team.

    Team to play in mt Buller is Sam Grigg, Jayden Fisher, Sebastian Jule, Lachlan Pedersen-Lee (This is the board order) plus Shaun Curtis as a reserve.

    Hopefully Jeo will be putting both the entry and profile up on the official site soon, but here is a photo

    I have been talking to Roman and the Mercure is going to give extra sponsorship for the evening function and afternoon teas (I have a budget from George to spend on these), which will result in this all being free to participants.

    It is very generous of the Mercure, particularly when we have made it clear that the schools will not be held there again.

    I would urge all schools to stay at the Mercure. It really makes sense to stay there for the 2 nights involved. Also if everyone is staying there, we will have really good social interaction going on and that is a very big part of the schools championships.

    Libby has promised me that she will bring up some sports equipment, (soccer balls, indoor cricket bats etc), so that we can get some games happening after the 3rd round on the Saturday.

    The ACF Council at its meeting last Monday night has awarded the 2005 Australian Schools event to the NSWCA. Naturally the event will be run by the NSWJCL.
    It will be held on the 10-11th December at Newington College in Sydney.

    Yes Michele told me about your lodge - hard to go past free accommodation. I think the Mercure will be happy with the bookings as the majority of schools are staying there.

    My feeling is that 4 reserves is too many. With only 5 rounds and your team wanting to do well, they would be lucky to get a game. The rules allow for four reserves, but realistically no-one takes more than 1 or 2.

    Thank you ggrayggray. Yes, I have driven to Mount Buller several times over the years, for ski trips, when I was younger (those were the days). Have never been there for Summer, although I have driven to the Snowy Mountains before in Summer and had an insight into the vegetation and scenery.

    Jenni,

    Indeed, I was somewhat surprised when I read the form that four reserves were allowed. When I informed Sam, he had a chuckle. This is chess, not rugby!!! (my words).

    My thinking was at least one reserve or two at most, to give each reserve at least one game. Both reserves have experience in ACF rated tournaments.

    However, the School Co-ordinator suggested that since we are allowed four reserves, two others may join with the understanding that they will not play, but can soak in the atmosphere. After all, we have a ski lodge! So, if we bring four reserves, I guess we bring four reserves, because we can. These kids will probably bring some custom to the Mercure, in terms of meals/drinks. I just have to bring a whistle to control them!
