    sorry fellow players, someone (we won't say who) thought they had triple-checked, and yet still the draft stayed there - it should be the uptodate version now.

    I'm reasonably certain that Gary Losh is playing There has to be a fair chance that Trent Parker will also be there
    Is that enough talent to drag you out of Victoria?

    And I will be there too! Finally sorted things out so that it would be clear for me to play. So there you are Mr Baron, surely the talent pool is getting deep enough now

    I'm gonna go. I can fit 3 people in my car, 2 comfortably, have a station wagon so bags and things can go in the back. My girlfriend has an Uncle in Toukley so we will probably stay there but I don't mind picking up and dropping off people at/from a hotel.

    I'll leave Saturday morning and leave Sunday night.

    $20 per head if there's 2 people. Costs me about $70 - $80 to fill up and that gets me there and back.

    I will be travelling down on the Friday evening. Saves a 4 hr drive for me on the Sat. I am using the hotel option that Gary posted, $35 a night.
    If it helps anybody, I can pick them up around Hornsby and take them on through from there. I have room for 4. Will be returning Sun evening after the tournament.

    I think that is probably one pairing that the organisers should have avoided if possible

    The much anticipated clash was a let down! Only 10 or 11 moves until the agreed draw!
