    Seminar topics:
    a) Laws of Chess.
    b) Tournament Rules.
    c) System of Games, tie breaks.
    d) Regulations for the rating and the over‐the‐board titles.
    e) Swiss system and pairing rules.
    f) Regulations for the titles of the Arbiters.

    At some stage I had expressed an interest in doing the seminar.
    However, I note that the venue is too far (30kms plus) from my place.
    The seminar starts too early (8:00 AM) and finishes too late (6:00 PM)
    I can't make it!
    Good luck to all participants! I am sure it will be a great experience and you will learn a lot!

    Fully vaccinated since October, 21, 2021

    My apology. I did not realise you have expressed your interest.

    The main reason why I decided to ask Chess Victoria to hold a FIDE Arbiters Seminar was there were 5 people who expressed their interest to me personally and they all live around the South-Eastern suburbs. Hence, I thought it made more sense to hold it somewhere in the city of Knox. If there are more interests shown for one to be held in the city, I will try to hold another one this year.

    So far, 8 confirmed participants (with 5 already paid) and another 5 registrations of interest. Please note that we can take only 15 participants at this stage.

    Hi N Y, thanks for the response.

    Actually let me apologise to you! The one seminar I had expressed an interest to participate was the Trainers one and not the Arbiters!

    Unfortunately the Trainers Seminar was cancelled!

    You had then informed me on time by

    If you send me an e-mail, I will make sure you will be the first to know if we do plan to have a seminar later in the year.
    Cheers.
