    No confusion

    Hi Starter, ( sorry for name typo last night; shocking really)

    I was not confusing but contrasting the respective placings of those two persons in the two events. As I understand it, Chris was first on Tuesday, and Marcus second, Whereas on Friday Marcus was =1st, and Chris was one of the second prize getters??

    In any case was not meaning to imply that they were both the same comp? After all only one was FIDE rated wasn't it??

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    Rookie's cup

    Hello, Everyone,
    I understand that there is to be a junior tournament tomorrow called the Rookie's Cup, which allows adults to enter, but gives the prizes to the juniors, mostly. I think it is a rapid, but what really surprised me was that it was going to start at 12.30pm and as such, I thought what with it being a weekend, couldn't it start later?

    To those who want to know more, I imagine the Box Hill webiste would have some more information,
    all the best, God Bless, Macavity

    hi Mrs Holy

    Yes there is a ROOKIES Cup on today. It is on nearly every month on the 3rd Sunday in the month. Usually attracts 50 juniors and about 15 adults. Usually three different prize groups
    > Adults
    > Master juniors
    > Newbie juniors

    Trophies handed out to newbies if they do well.
    Not much money to go around the other groups as the entry fee is low; and the $2 ratings fee causes a bit of erosion too. But a few go home quite happy with their winnings.

    Organisers usually depart the venue in a very frazzled state at 6.30pm or later. And no Malcolm, we are not going to risk a cuff around the ears on the home front by starting later.

    regards

    Rookie's Cup

    The July Rookie's Cup attracted a field of 48 players -mostly juniors.

    Thank you to the Potter boys who helped set up all the boards, and we were ready for a 12.30 start. Not so the players who kept dribbling in until 1.10.pm. Games started at 1.00 - so a few late games had to be played in the first round.

    First adult - Leon Kampon

    First junior - James Morris
    4 juniors shared second place

    Full details will be posted on the Box Hill Chess Club site shortly.

    Thanks to Gerrit Hartland - arbiter, Trevor Stanning who took the money and did the data entry, to Rick (parent) who took the scores, to Linda who helped me in the tea room, and to the band of helpers who helped pack up - Rowena, David Flude and others.
    And last of all, thanks to little India who drew the lucky numbers for the special doughnut prizes to winners in the lightning round.

    The July ROOKIES Cup has been run and won.
    Good competition in the adults group from Leon Kempen, Marcus Raine, John Wildes, Malcolm Pyke, Chris Potter, Arie Meydan, David Flude and others; with the first-mentioned taking home the first prize, and AM the second cash prize.
    The top ROOKIE was James Morris who has quite a support group. The Queens cup was shared by Jennie Fan and Kim Pakshong.
    Actually it is not a cup these days but a handsome shield; now how do you put a large shield on display for a month?
    There were 6 rating groups with trophy prizes....details will appear eventually on our web-site.
    Macavitiy supplied chocolate mint-slice to round out the afternoon.

    Big helpers included Kerry Lyall, Mr Canale, India (who drew the numbers for the donut give-aways), and Paul Sanderson among others. Thanks to all.

    In response to a few PMs, the number of competitors was 48
    * 10 adults
    * 38 juniors

    All junior prizes now allocated by rating-group rather than age-group.
