    I take it that you would like the event to be registered for the CAQ Grand Prix given we haven't had any information about it or even locked in the calendar dates (and thus there is now a clash on the Sunday with the GC Rapid).

    Make sure you have registered it with ACF also, if you haven't already - though looking at the ACF Grand Prix site there are a few events missing that i know of already.

    Awesome. The more ACF rated events on the calendar the better.

    The reason I make the point though, is that if information had been sent to the CAQ about the event (information which i requested via email on the 15th Jan) then we would be able to assist your event by both putting it on the CAQ list of upcoming events and also being able to provide the CAQ tournament subsidy for SEQ events.

    Expired ratings should be used for seedings and ratings prize divisions. Although they're not an accurate indicator of a player's likely playing strength they are better than nothing.

    Brian Kemish will have a rating on the June list: "1923 12 219 27 Kemish, Brian". It's not 'official' yet, but has been posted on Chess Chat. He is definitely around that strength.

    Good luck with the tournament!
