    Well all I can say is they'd better not let Bolens in without paying the entry fee like they did at the May Weekender I hope the NSWCA gets its money back.

    Well the advert was circulated numerous times over the past few months between council members for comment.
    You had your opportunity to make a comment.
    You made none.

    Also the prize money for the U1600 division is the most for a weekender with the Doeberl Minor being the only exception I believe.

    sSo what ? THe NSW Open is noting compared to the DEOBERL, and shunting the entry up and up wil not make it so.

    No I was just pointing out you have no excuse for posting rubbish.

    Again you miss the point you moron.
    The aim was to offer a reasonable prize fund for the lower rated players.
    Of course you would know this if you attended council meetings or even it seems read the emails between council members related to it.

    So, one has to be on the NSWCA Council to know this???? A REASONABLE PRIZE FUND FOR LOWER PALYER COULD BE ACHIEVED BY REDUCING THE OPEN PRIZES RATHER THAN DEAMNDING A TON FROM ORDINAARY PLAYERS.

    No you cretin.
    If you had attended council meetings you would have understood the reasons for the entry fees and the prize money. In fact you would know if you bothetred to read emails.
    Of course you appear to do neither.
    You are a complete joke.

    The Council wants to promote the NSW Open as its major long weekend event.
    We want good prize money for the top players and the lower rated players. Its not an either or situation.

    I suspect the NDWCA dont know this, but the NSWCA members should.
    It was stated at last years Open that the NSW Open was going to be our main event. It was also mentioned again at the NSWCA AGM.

    Finally its $70 if they pre enter.

    Are we trying to shoot ourselves in the foot?

    If the NSW Open is the main event for 2004, then why are the details released so late, why no mention of seperate Womens event and why no advertising in Australian Chess. Is NSWCA trying to organise events by commitee (which never works) and has it lost the momentum created by the successful event in 2003?
