    Andrew Saint has said they will happen, so they will happen. That I have great confidence in. When they will happen is a different question and one I cannot answer.

    Just arrived back from New Zealand, where we have been doing some touristy things down in Rotorua, after the zonal. Going to take awhile to catch up with all the posts on the BB.

    I am not going to make any real comments on some of the stuff that has been written while I was in NZ - I have said enough over the last few months to make my opinion on various matters clear. I think for the sake of Australian chess we need to learn and move on and improve.

    However, (because I am female I guess ), I can't be entirely silent.

    I would like to put in a good word for Garvin. Yes he was inexperienced and needed to have someone good to work with, to learn how to run a big event. He made a lot of mistakes (as do we all) along the way. He and I had a number of clashes in the early days of me organising the schools comp and sticking my nose into other things. However I did come to have a measure of respect for his desire to make things work well. This may not have been obvious to all, but I often found that it was Garvin who was trying to find a solution that would result in a win-win situation.

    The second is a more general reflection. I really enjoyed the zonal. It was very well run and friendly and I just enjoyed everything about it. it occurred to me that one of the best things was that chess seemed to be the most important thing and money was secondary. The emphasis was totally on the chess and the players. In Mt Buller I just always felt that the profit and the sponsor was what it was all about and somehow the players and the chess seemed to come a long way second. (This refers to the juniors, not the open as I wasn't there for the open).

    I am not opposed to chess being run for a profit and sponsorship is critical as well and I feel chess businesses have a very important role to play in developing chess, but somehow the balance was wrong in MB.

    As I've stated elsewhere, I gave the master CD to George over a month ago now and he only came to me last week saying it wouldn't work - I've handed him a new copy (which I've checked) and hope they will be out soon. I certainly didn't envisage it taking this long. I'm sorry there has been such a delay, but the bulletins were done shortly after the open ended. This certainly won't be canned as people have paid money for the CDs.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    According to my reading of the FIDE website the Austrlaian Open has not been submitted for FIDE rating on the next rating list. Is this wrong? If it is not wrong then why hasn't it been done?

    Gary Bekker sent out the ratings reports to competitors to check on 1 March. I would assume that they will be sent very soon, if not already sent.

    Well they were supposed to be with FIDE by the 1st of March at the latest so I guess the Australian Open will not be rated until July if FIDE strictly follow their rules

    Scotty? Gazza's doing a sterling job every rating period. Gets it right every time ... and then there's FIDE's own downtime.

    Yes I got it wrong, very wrong. I should have check the FIDE website again before my last post and I didn't. I apologise for the wrong information that I put forward in the previous post I made in this thread.

    Greg, I don't really like being called Scotty although I probably deserved it this time after my appalling post.
