    Is there any Hobart club member plans to come this event? I am planning to come and it will be great if there are some friends to travel together. As it will be a long driving trip from Hobart to Burnie (Around 4hours from Google map) . Also, Please give us some suggestions about the accommodation there?

    I think Ian Little said he's going up. I am unlikely to at this stage.

    In the past some of us have sometimes shared an Air BnB house so Ian might be interested in that.

    It should be mentioned that the location of Havenview Primary is roughly in the middle of nowhere (which is an occasional topic of discussion , but that's another issue). This has implications for travel and accommodation, which Hobart members with prior experience will be able to tell you more about. (Yes, 4 hours travel is a good estimate.)

    I'm hopeful of playing at this stage and would be happy to be part of an airb'nb plan if it can be arranged. Hopefully, Thanh can check with Ian Little. I'll be seeing Aidan Cox at the chesskids school finals next Monday, so will see if he and other Launceston players can make it as well. I haven't seen Dave Rolph over the board for a while now. Does anyone know if he still travels for chess?
