    ACF National Conference

    Are all states able to send delegates who reside in their states and/or are members of their state associations? Or are we going to see some states sacrifice good governance by casting around for anyone willing to represent them?
    If it is the latter I for one would prefer a state association accept that their commitment to the ACF isn't that great, and just turn up with a lesser number of delegates than they are entitled.

    I'm pleased to say that this time around Tasmania will be represented (by moi). However the casting-around bit (which we've done sometimes in preference to not being represented at all) is not so bad if you give your delegate clear instructions on how to vote on different matters likely to come up during the conference.

    Have not heard of any other states that are struggling for numbers - did you have anyone in mind?

    the little victorian problem-still skating on thin ice

    How does a Victorian chessplayer become a member of their state association?

    Like i have said before-: ChessVictoria is the recognised body of affiliated clubs, its structure is not like other states. It will be interesting to see if clubs nominate delegates to attend, on behalf of CV (somehow I won't hold my breath), obviusly the CV executive is eligable. But what about certain notorious individuals? Will Jammo or guru be there? and on what grounds would they base their legitimacy if they were?

    Cheers FG7

    Hey, I was walking to work this morning and suddenly, for whatever reason, I remembered a game played between Andrew Allen and Solomon at the 1999 Aus Open.

    Anyone know where Allen is now? He also used to look after our BB all those moons ago.

    A thrasing is on its way......

    Here is my prediction of how the votes will go at the upcoming ACF National Conference for the position of ACF President.

    Denis Jessop 22 votes versus Cordover 0 votes.

    Anyone else care to predict the final result?

    One would think Lord Voldemort would have to get a few? However my prediction is a large majority for Denis - I like certain bets.

    (I think you are not supposed to mention his name, so I have done a bit of editing.....)

    Cordover Cordover Cordover! I'm not afraid and neither should anyone else be! (A take on a Harry Potter quote).

    Seriously, we've said this before. His name is not an expletive, it was only starter who began (as you'd expect) this whole 'unmentionable one' nonsense. He's banned from this board and that should be the end of it, not having ridiculous censorship of his name itself.

    Please re-edit the name back jenni. After all:

    Oh all right - I went and read Kathick's directive and it doesn't say we can't mention him at all, just not in a negative sense. Of course implying he is going to get 0 votes, might be construed as negative, but then again maybe not....

    I'll put it back in (but only becasue you can quote Harry Potter so well).

    hi BD

    You and I are as one on this censorship thing.
    Glad to find some common ground after all this time.

    Unless he ends up being a CV Delegate he doesnt have a vote.

    Bill

    You know, you have a fantastic ability to look at my posts and see that I have made assumptions,and to rightfully challenge those assumptions.
    Now that you have pointed it out I can see that
    > I assumed the GURU would go to the National conference
    > I assumed the GURU would get one of the prized VICTORIAN delegate positions
    > I assumed the GURU would vote for himself in the Prez. election.

    Errr...just which one are you doubtful about.
