    Michael Lip and Jason Lyons will be joint NSW coordinators in 2006.
    Subsequent years will involve the junior leagues voting in a coordinator.

    After discussions with Dennis Jessop, NSWJCL president Charles Zworestine and Richard Gastineau-Hills, I have had to do a double back flip.

    Michael Lip is the sole NSW coordinator.

    I have spoken to Jason who has accepted my position and the position of the NSWJCL. He has been offered another role on the committee.

    Kind regards,
    Alex.

    Hi Alex

    I noticed on the website that there are some contradictory bits of scheduling (I think).

    Your brochure (in the pdf format anyway, still having trouble with the word version) advertises -

    Interstate Teams from 19/2
    then Open event
    "Bugman" from 13/8
    and Teams from 29/10

    This contradicts the calendar http://www.ausnetchess.org/calendar.htm and the original schedule advertised here. Can you confirm which bit is correct before we look to use the brochures for advertising? Also, just doesn't pay to have a mix of info in the public domain as not everyone will come back to the website often enough to appreciate any changes.

    Also, the proposed "brochure" dates (which I am assuming are the wrong ones) would have the Schools event clashing with the ASTC itself - which isn't a go-er.

    Finally, I am still after an answer on "reserves" for this first event. Yes, we have a committed player group but they don't have a full grasp of school commitments (even things like camps away from home) or sports scheduling etc, this early into their academic year.

    I know you asked people to advise of obvious clashes but the point is that every weekend is a potential obvious clash for some children, especially those who travel interstate to tournaments. If you're driving home on the Hume Hwy, chances are you can't play your game that Sunday evening.

    Is there a mechanism, not to allow sulking by underperforming drips, but to allow those who are unavailable - and able to give adequate notice - to be substituted in Team events?

    I couldn't find this under FAQ.

    Thanks - and well done on your efforts so far

    Looks contradictory to me too. Likewise the word version doesn't work here. Personally, I don't know why one would bother with a DOC file if the document is published in PDF. One might like to have a DOC version for editing but just publish the PDF, it's one of the most standard file formats there is.

    According to the pdf file I see the it is Allegro which is starting on 13/8. If this is meant to be bughouse allegro then I think that should be specified as it isn't intuitive so (not to me anyway).

    ACT Team

    The ACT team for the first event is -

    Junta Ikeda, 2032
    Khoi Hoang, 1746
    Kishore Sreetharan, 1742
    Sherab Guo Yuthok, 1706
    Yi Yuan, 1574
    Andrew Brown, 1573
    Justin Chow, 1346
    Edward Xing, 1342
    Miona Ikeda, 1285
    Emma Guo, 1197
    Kayleigh Smith, 1145
    Alana Chibnall, 928

    Now, 'fess up - who are we up against?

    Well done Libby - looks like a good team, even if you did get a few knockbacks

    Hi Libby,

    Just to answer a few of your questions.

    The brochure files are incorrect (the calendar one is correct). Apologies will correct in the next day or so. The schools competition is in term 3-further details of this will be up later. The Allegro/Blitz/Bughouse is in term 4.

    Libby, yes the reserves need to contact their state coordinator ASAP. The latter you leave it, the harder it will be. Each state should have 1 reserve who is under 18 and 1 who is under 12. A girl should be replaced with a girl where possible. Hope this helps.

    Rincewind, the doc file was requested by some so we provided that. I dont think there is any problem in providing another option


    I shall make the whole Allegro thing clearer.

    Cheers,
    Alex.

    Well since Libby and myself can't access the Word version, did you provide another option?

    Whatever that supposed calendar.doc file is, it certainly isnt a Microsoft Word document.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for this. Ive been in contact with the web designer and these .doc files were created by him.

    .doc files from my computer are ok. Therefore will fix tonight.

    Thanks all for your interest and letting me know. I really appreciate it.

    Cheers all,
    Alex
