    Possibly not the greatest idea for those who have already paid for their accommodation close to the advertised venue or have a parent playing in the Open.

    Great effort by organisers to get 240 participants.
    I am sure if they had no restriction
    numbers would have reached 300+!!
    But few questions come to mind.
    1.Are there enough toilets for yhe participants
    2.Is there any dedicated space for parents/family members of chess
    players
    3. Is there space in the playing hall for visitors to walk and watch the games
    4.If it gets hot for those few days is there any plan for hot weather protection/power outings.
    I am sure organisers would have thought about these
    issues but hoping the tournament goes smooth and comfortable.

    GM Justin Tan to play in the Open

    GM Timor Gareyev is a late withdrawal from the Open, however I am very please to announce that Australia’s newest Grand Master Justin Tan has kindly replaced him.
    Justin is giving up his short holiday time in Melbourne to participate in the Australian Open in order to give chess players opportunities for Norms.

    The organiser and the Australian chess community appreciates your efforts and thanks you for your participation.

    BREAKING NEWS - More Room found for the Australian Open

    The Box Hill Chess Club committee has worked extremely hard and we have successfully negotiated with the Bridge Club to secure more space at the expense of closing the Bridge Club over the Australian Open period. I want to acknowledge the generosity of the Waverley Bridge Club in this matter. This means that those on the wait list have already entered the Australian Open. In addition we now have more space for other interested players to register. Again space is finite and I encourage players who are still interested in playing in the Australian Open and Australian Minor to register via TryBooking to secure your place

    Trybooking will be opened from 7 pm on Thursday 13 December

    To register and pay:
    https://www.trybooking.com/418864

    Open: $150 (till 20 Dec 2018) $170 (21 to 26 Dec 2018)
    Minor: $120 (till 20 Dec 2018) $140 (21 to 26 Dec 2018)

    For GM/WGM/IM/WIM please contact me directly to enter

    I want to thank the organisers for their continued efforts to make the event open to even more players. Sorry I won't be able to drop in and watch because of the timing (other commitments Xmas-NYE) but very impressed with the efforts being made.

    Is the Bridge Club located in the same premises?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    What an amazing outcome, now nudging 294! May I gratuitously suggest keep building on momentum by (subject to your finances) announcing additional prizes such as round-by-round upset prizes, beauty (brilliancy) prizes named after prominent club member donors, expanded number of prizes for juniors, for women and for seniors, free or subsidized tea & coffee? Novelties to test your potential, offer better value in the still available lead-up time. The Open that thinks outside the box and looks to becoming a festival.

    Congratulations Peter and team, attracting 300 entries is a significant milestone! I certainly appreciate the extra efforts to accommodate more players, as I was unable to make an earlier decision to enter but am now very pleased to be part of what looks like a history-making event!

    I wonder if it might make sense to counsel the handful of players who are both FIDE unrated and under 1000 on the ACF rating list and invite them to consider whether the Minor might result in a better playing experience for them?

    Thanks for organising a system of lunch-ordering too

    A kind thought, Tony. But I'm sure the thrill of just being in it is the main motive for them. Besides, I think the essence of Open tournaments can be found in the old saying "You pays your money and you takes your chances!" And that includes the rated players who have to play them (i.e. the unrated players).

    Yes, that could be the case but maybe they don't realise was they're in for either.
