    I sincerely hope this year it is not to be be modelled on The Amazing Race, where contestants only find the location of the next venue by successfully completing tasks.

    Maybe that' a way of making chess seem more like sport! Players have to race and find the location of the next round. If they get there late they loose time of their clock.

    Vic Championships

    Just recieved a brochure on the Victorian Championships.

    Discount, Concession and Exempt entries, special applications close August 16
    Entries close Friday August 19.
    Games begin Thursday August 25.

    Entry fees $72 or $48 concession - less $12 discount if payment is received before 16 August.

    Is anyone interested in the exact dates?

    Flyers for Vic Championship

    Hello Everyone,
    I understand that Gary Wastell is doing a progress around the Clubs dropping these off; last night he was to have visited Melbourne and Dandenong. I can confirm that he was at Dandenong, as I was there. Bobby, perhaps you can ask Greg if He saw Wastell, and in turn whether he could put aside a flier for you.

    If people want me to, I can try and find time to type up the relevant details here, otherwise perhaps visit a club in the next week or so and get one.

    I do know however that the cut off for early entries is Tuesday 16/08/05 and that the fees are: $72 full and $48 concession with a $12 discount if entered before 16 th August,

    Take care all and God Bless, Macavity

    PS the fliers are very colourful, and it was good to see that MCC features on the cover; although I am a bit biased!! M

    double vision?

    any chance of the two vic championship threads being grafted at this early stage before things get out of hand once play gets underway ... we'll be expecting quite a lot of posts and we don't want to get people confused ....

    Good idea. Done and left in Tournament News and Results at this seems the logical forum.

    Starter,

    How come only 3 rounds at Box Hill in the travelling circus? What's the story there?

    Gary was at Croydon Chess last night and delivered us the tournament brochures. Fair ol' hike to our club from his normal stamping grounds ... thanks Gary!

    Dear GG,
    they have already by Firegoat's having the relevant details hinted at within his post, In any case it would seem highly unlikely that there would be none delivered to a one of the three venues for the event,
    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    You are ahead of me, because we don't have our flyer copies yet. Given the Marco Polo reports from other posters earlier in the thread, we (BHCC) might be visited tonight.
    Not sure who decided the venues, but it would be a small select number of CV officials.

    regards
