    Discussion re future arbiters seminars

    Does anybody know when the next FIDE Arbiters’ Seminar in Sydney is scheduled? I can't find that info on the FIDE website. Nothing listed at http://arbiters.fide.com/seminars/up...-seminars.html
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    I received a reply from FIDE with some interesting English:

    "Unfortunately, there are no registered seminars for Sidney yet.

    The first, someone of Lectures has to apply. Then, Arbiters` Commision approves and after that we publish on arbiters web site." At least the message is clear.

    Seems like we are hosting the Olympic Games again! Or is this seminar referring to Sydney, Nova Scotia

    I am liaising with Gary Bekker and Shaun Press on possible forthcoming South Pacific based (or online) FIDE arbiters' seminars. Attending such a seminar and passing the test is required for the FA title.

    A great initiative by the CAQ and a boon to Australian chess.

    Many thanks, Craig and Andrew. This is definitely a possibility for me. Andrew, I will PM you if I can make it.

    The Gold Coast seminar which Andrew F is organising is now showing at the URL in post 1. Sadly for me, it is Tuesday-Wednesday and not practical for me to attend. So I will keep looking out, especially for a weekend seminar and / or a Sydney based one.
