    something to do on the rest day

    Note that the Under 14/16/18 event starts on the Tuesday 12th.

    The Johns-Putra JETS program runs from the 4th to Saturday the 9th.

    Therefore kids have the opportunity to participate in the MCC July Blitz Marathon on Sunday 10th and still have a rest day on Monday 11th before the Vic Junior starts.

    Use the blitz to practice some new openings you want to unleash in the Vic Junior and compete against FM Bobby Cheng!

    See the MCC July Blitz Marathon thread for details.

    Am I reading correctly that the entry fee per player is 50-60$ and the prize for winning an age group is.... 50$ plus a trophy?

    According to the official website the list of the U12s U10s and U8s has now increased to 54!!! Boys have the numbers though since only 14 girls have entered so far!

    There is also a number of players who have entered the U18s, U16s, and U14s but since there might be some who have entered two or even more subdivisions you better check out the website!

    some thoughts

    I was looking at the above entry fee / prize ratios myself. Inadvertently, I had to go through facts and figures in my disposal to establish certain positive/negative conclusions.

    POSITIVE

    16 different prizes. The chance of a person winning a prize is much higher than in your usual tournaments.

    Last year more than 25 prizes (including = s) were paid!

    The no. of players already registered (56 in the U12 and U10 categories quite a while before the actual tournament's starting date) indicates that parents and participants don't really care about entry fees and prizes. Competing vs their peers seems to be the main thing for juniors.

    NEGATIVE

    Indeed the ratio entry fee / prize is unfair to say the least. I wouldn't mind if it was something like entree fee $20 - $25 / prize money $25 - $30. But the $50 - $60 entry fee is a bit too much for a family whose financial situation doesn't allow for such luxuries.

    The prize pool has fallen in comparison to last year! dramatically too! I won't give details here; MOZ is the man to provide you with money movements since he is the person who knows the safe's code and controls what's coming in and out!

    SO WHAT NOW???

    The above situation emphasises the importance of professional involvement in organising such important events.

    The companies who base their operation on Chess should finance venues, prize funds, catering etc with Clubs (*) playing an auxiliary rather than protagonistic role.

    The term "Clubs" does not include the MCC which in years to come will be an even more decisive factor than what it is now in whatever has to do with Chess affairs in Victoria.

    This matter is too serious to be examined in a few short paragraphs. A more analytical discussion is necessary

    Maybe there is a legit reason for the low prize offerings?
    Is the cost of hosting the tournament high?

    That seems odd to me too. As an organiser I'd feel more comfortable even charging half the entry fee and offering no prizemoney (just the trophies and make them good!) Generally I think it's insulting to have players winning a prize that's below their entry money (unless they tie for something they wouldn't win if there was tiebreak). I suppose that it's different when the player who wins the cash prize isn't the person who paid.

    I've never seen entry fees so high for a two-day under-12 event. Clearly though they are getting plenty of entries so I assume that they know what they're doing. Remember the golden motto: chess equals childcare.
