    Are they actual members of MCC or do they just play in tournaments there.

    Bobby:
    They do say something. Definetly a good club to mingle with.
    How often do these players listed above play at the Club. I am pretty sure you are a regular or am I wrong?

    Johansen and Jordan - Life members
    Dragicevic and Pecori- current members
    Bjelobrk- currently not a member, but former =club champion in 2003.

    JGB- both Jordan and Pecori are MCC regulars, often found at the club playing blitz, coaching or looking at games.
    Dragicevic regularly plays in most MCC events.

    The other two seldom play at MCC anymore, but sometimes play in tournaments at MCC.

    Cheers FG7

    P.S West, Rujevic ,Froehlich, Speck and Levi were all regularly seen at MCC last year.

    I wish Box Hill Chess Club could claim the same as the impressive MCC list.

    Which of these will be playing for MCC in INTERCLUB this year?
    Will MCC be bidding to host some divisions or zones?

    Perhaps I should have asked for a posting in Melbourne.

    Very few players over 2000 seem to play in Sydney torns.

    A look at the rating list shows an awful lot of good players in New South Wales dont play many rated games.

    Does the New South Wales chess board attempt to attract them back to playing torns?

     3-5  Xie, George              NSW   2319 5    
          Wei, Michael             ACT   1953 5    
          Song, Raymond            NSW   1903 5    
    6-14  Camer, Angelito          NSW   2077 4.5

    I agree. I think this is the same phenomenon as witnessed in Europe. For good chess you need a reasonable population and poor weather.

    Im sure Box Hill will have an even more impressive list in the next few years , due to its excellent administration and ability to grow players.

    As for Interclub, well it needs some sort of revitalising. Maybe ChessVictoria needs to discuss Interclub with the top 20 players in Victorian chess, ask them- how can we get you to play?

    My opinion of the matter, which may or may not count for much is that Interclub should be, just that, a club competition not a team event. Maybe, get rid of stupid names like the team I once played for (the cashdy bundies).

    (For a suggestion out of left field).Let's get Interschool connected with the chess clubs via Interclub. How about getting ChessVictoria to engage the private coaching services ie Chessworld, ChessEd, ChessIdeas etc to divy up zones for schools.

    For example, ChessVictoria organises that junior Interschool becomes part of Interclub. The private organisations present information to ChessVictoria about how many of there teams they want to play in the ChessVictoria event.
    ChessVictoria then ensures that all schools are organised within a zone around certain clubs. ie, Elwood High is in Elwoods zone, Torquay high in Geelongs etc.
    Clubs then take responsibilty for explaining to schoolchildren, what is expected in a team tournament, but more importantly, get them rated within the ChessVictoria system.
    Interschool is then played under two flags, one the school flag, (very important for generating publicity,competition, players,clubs and status- important for coaching organisations) , the second a club affiliation, which, at the moment, is lacking since anybody , can and does, play for any old club ie (the cashdy bundies).

    We might have to change Interclub to Saturday afternoons!

    Good ideas need resources to carry them through.

    Good morning fg7

    All of your post is a bit left field for me. This is not a criticism, just a reflection of the fact that I asked a question thinking it was an bounded question, and your response sort of escapes from the straight-jacket.
    Valuable ideas of yours.
    You need to engage CV, and they do not visit here on the BB.
    An alternate suggestion is to lodge your post as a letter to the EDITOR of the CV Newsletter...which I hear is about to be re-lanched this month.

    Do you have access to my WPB? I thought I deleted that post.
    I feared we were heading down a path to Mt B.
