    Why can't I be answered here?
    If we all individually talk to Graeme how will we know if there is a consensus of opinion?
    Garvin you don't have children do you?

    How is whether or not I have children relevant to this discussion of trial by bulletin board? I have told everyone their policy, that is their decision. I am not a spokesperson for the organising committee, so direct questions to them. This will be the last time I state this and I will always answer questions this way from now on.

    Why are you speaking for them if you are not a spokesperson?

    i am not speaking for them. I just know their policy and am telling you about it. I thought you would at least want an answer of some sort about how to contact them.

    They actually said they would not be "...engaging in trial by chesschat bulletin board"?
    They were expecting some complaints?

    I have answered you Mischa, stop trying to stir up trouble. See you later. Email them, dont email them, it is no concern to me. Debating with me on here is a waste of your time as it wont get your question answered.

    They are running the australian championships/juniors. I am not part of the organising team, therefore email them.

    Hey GG
    don't get angry....
    my question is not answered but I see now that it is not a question you can answer.
    Thanks for telling me that they are not open to debate!

    There is a protocol that I think was established before your joining us. It goes like this:

    Criticise the childless Darwinian failures for not understanding the world of "married with children" and get banned.

    Matt I just meant that he perhaps would not be appreciative of the logistics in getting juniors and siblings awake, dressed, fed and transported in time or indeed in any sort of state to compete on the final day of a long chess tournament.

    Show where anyone has been banned from here for doing as you claim.

    I am very unhappy about this!
    I would think that the earlier start is related to the fact that the Australian Championship starts 2 hrs earlier on the final day at 1pm rather than 3pm.

    I thought perhaps something like that...but is way to early for anyone to play.
    Is this too allow for the seniors to leave early?

    I dont know so you would need to ask the organisers about that.

    will malajusted body clocks mean "curtains" for last day aspirations of some?

    making the kids play an hour earlier on last day is effectively the organisers adopting de facto daylight saving which queensland does not believe in because of the damage it does to ....

    Actually an 8am start does seem rather early to me, even without feeding washing and dressing an entourage. Mischa, perhaps you, Libby, Jenni and other interested parents should get together an approach Graeme with a united front. A later start time might be accomodated. Can't hurt to ask.

    Though don't ask Garvin. I heard a rumour that he's not on the organising committee.
