    Melbourne Chess Club (MCC) understands that having qualified arbiters is highly beneficial to the local and wider chess community.

    To support this, MCC is offering to subsidise $100 of the cost for a limited number of 2021 MCC members to attend the seminar. To claim this, please first email melbchessclub@gmail.com to check if any subsidised spots are still available.

    Interesting the difference in the cost between an Arbiter’s Seminar organised by CV and the one held by the NSWCA.

    NSWCA Cost:
    NSWCA and NSWJCL - $55
    Rest of Australia - $100
    Oceania - $150
    (Examination fees included)

    WHAT? even incl. the MCC member discount (not all Victorians are MCC members) that's a huge difference! c'mon guys you can do better than that!

    and mind you, MCC's offer was changed from

    MCC is offering to subsidise $100 of the cost for any 2021 MCC members

    to the more logical and realistic ...

    for a limited number of 2021 MCC members to attend the seminar.

    emphasis mine

    Having said all of the above, I must note that since I don't know the logistics behind the seminar's expenses
    i.e. having someone from overseas to direct proceedings, I shouldn't rush to draw conclusions. We'll find out anyway!

    I suspect that Fide Fees remain unchanged for all the seminars so all the costs above those, are up to the organizers to establish.

    To give you an idea, the last one I helped organise here in QLD had room hire, speaker costs, and FIDE Exam fees. We charged $100.00 per participant and did not cover the costs which CAQ were willing absorb in the interest or furthering chess in our state.

    Sure MCC have their own premises so the cost of room hire is not an issue, but even so, these events are not run as a money making exercise. Pending their numbers, there is still every chance they lose money on this.

    I'm happy to hear NSWCA have a lower cost. NSWCA also have a much larger bank balance than other states so it's great to see they are using some of it for things like this

    I thought it appropriate to thank Peter publicly (here) for a very well run, efficient, informative and professional FIDE arbiters seminar.
    Also thankyou to CV/leonid for cost subsidies and BHCC for the venue.

    So are you going to be a qualified arbiter soon? Great, you can join the Allegro arbiting team and be chief arbiter at blitz from now on!
