    Just a reminder that the City of Melbourne Open starts in less than 2 weeks - the Monday after the final round of the MCC Club Championship.

    No need to be a MCC member to play, so everyone is welcomed to enter.

    Was hoping to sign up to this tournament as my first ever, but I occasionally have to travel interstate for work and am concerned it may impact my ability to compete.

    Can anyone clarify the rules around byes? I would hope to only have to take one bye in those 9 rounds, but on the off chance I have to take two, will this create issues?
    Also, how much notice do you require prior to taking bye?

    Players can take up to 2 half-point byes in rounds 1-7.

    For rounds 8 and 9, byes can still be taken but doing so will result in the player receiving 0 points.

    Players should advise the arbiter of the need to take a bye as soon as possible, but at the latest before the draw for the next round is finalised and published. Usually, the draw for the next Monday round is released on Thursday evening.

    I will certainly be playing in this, but I might have to take a bye in the first round, I'm still nowhere near 100%.

    I'll let you know by Saturday

    Just a reminder to everyone that round 2 will be on Monday 2 May.
