    It will mean free tournament entries (encourages me to play more often & could be said is good for the development of women's chess from a marketing perspective) .... while I work towards the FM title. The male IM title I'll concede is out of reach given my age. I don't make the rules, only play by them

    Update on 2013 Oceania Chess Championships venue

    Dear all

    As you know there have been several key factors that have externally affected the 2013 zonal prior to commencement, including the fire that affected the conference rooms at the venue and the recent cyclone.

    While these are unfortunate and unavoidable, the organizers have successfully found an alternate venue. The event will now be held at the Sonaisali Island Resort (http://www.sonaisali.com/)

    It is vitally important that all interested contact the organizers immediately to ensure that there is no misunderstanding. The two venues are quite a distance apart and travelling between the two will be a hassle.

    The organizers have also managed to secure good accomadation rates and encourage all to apply through them.

    Further updated information will be available soon at http://oceania2013.fijichess.com/

    Great to hear about the alternative venue and accommodation

    Accomodation appears to be quite expensive for ''special rates''

    Given that more zonal IM titles will be on offer after 1st July 2013, will the 2013 Oceania Zonal be postponed to a date after 1st July?

    The zonal FM and CM titles are harder to get than before.

    Sub-Continental Individual (includes Zonals and Sub-zonals)
    IM/WIM title - 1st equal – title; Silver & Bronze - title
    FM/WFM title - 65% in min 9 games - title
    CM/WCM title - 50% in min 9 games - title
    The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

    I'm thinking that if the field is a reasonably strong one the changes will actually make Z-IM titles harder to get (good thing too!)
