    Moved this one for the second year running to better fit in with a busy December in Vic chess. Would be nice if a clash with lidums could be avoided in the future as we're likely to get top players down for this one in coming years.

    Australasian Masters: December 13-21
    Canterbury Summer Swiss: December 27-30
    then followed by, Australian Open: January 2-11

    Simon please count me in for this tournament!
    Byes (*) for the two evening rounds 1 (Fri) and 4 (Sat) required if possible.
    Thanks in advance!
    (*) Not necessarily 1/2 point byes if 6 round tournaments do not provide for that!

    I have entered with byes in rounds 2 and 3. That means Elliott and myself will have Sunday only to catch up. Up to that day, we won't meet
