    The most fascinating of stories of The Mouse that Roared. Funny how GM Rogers was even "having it out" with Garry Kasparov back then, that is maybe Kasparov was assisting Ian's opponent. And what an amazing lining of the stars re the East German team no longer existing. Ooi Ooi Ooi Surely a top effort should be put into finding that trophy because another will never cross our shores again.

    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

    and the first Australian Chess Congress to be held in Melbourne.

    Formation of the New South Wales Chess Association.


    Meeting to form the NSW Chess Association. The Maitland Daily Mercury. 15 Oct 1898

    E N Wallace opposes the formation of the NSWCA. Australian Town and Country Journal. Oct 8 1898.

    Apparently a dispute erupted prior to the formation of the NSWCA. It is to the credit of the good citizens of the first colony that, since the formation of the NSWCA,
    total equanimity, mutual respect and singleness of purpose has prevailed within its ranks to the present day.

    Formation of the Chess Association of Victoria.

    The Melbourne Chess Club was formed in 1866. Most of the strong players of the day gravitated to the Melbourne club and most of the intercolonial
    matches and state championships were arranged by the club.

    There was an early version of the Chess Association of Victoria:

    Apparently this organization did not last very long.

    from: http://www.melbournechessclub.org/me...stralian-chess

    “For most of its first 70 years the club was the governing body of chess in Victoria, but between 1878 and 1890 it faltered. In trying to boost membership the club
    made the mistake of opening the door to whist players. The result was very nearly fatal. By 1883 Melbourne faced extinction and a new body, the Victorian Chess
    and Draughts club was formed and flourished. The first Australian championship tourney took place in Adelaide in 1887.”

    The Melbourne Chess Club eventually got rid of the card players and shared premises with the Victorian Chess Club, that had meanwhile got rid of the Draughts players.
    When this arrangement came to an end, so did the Victorian Chess Club.

    The Melbourne Chess Association was active between 1901 and 1909, organizing inter club matches between suburban clubs.

    After the demise of the Melbourne Chess Association, various other Associations and Leagues continued running inter club chess in Melbourne. The Melbourne Chess club
    continued to be the organizational centre for state and interstate events.

    from: http://www.melbournechessclub.org/me...stralian-chess

    “The (Melbourne Chess) club convened a meeting of representatives of all known chess clubs in Victoria for June 15 1938, to consider forming a Victorian chess Association.
    The Association was in fact formed in that year and absorbed the Melbourne Chess League and took control of the inter-club competition. In 1939 the Victorian Championship
    was played for the first time under its auspices. It also took over the telegraphic matches between Victoria and NSW.”
