    The Asean tournament is a new tournament for Australia to enter, and the exact regulations and age divisions are still to be announced.

In order to play in this tournament you MUST apply for it and be selected.

    There are a few other tournaments held during the year to which Australia is allowed to send players. These are

    April 26-May 5
    World Schools Individual Championships
    Singapore

    July 9-17 2008
    World Schools Championship,
    Pardubice, Czech Republic

    ASEAN Youth U/9, U/12 and U/15 Youth Teams Championships
    Venue as yet unknown.

    If you are interested in playing any of these please let me know.

    Selections will close on the 9 March 2008.

    Email me if you have any queries/problems with the site. If you wish to see the selection procedure by-law please go to http://www.auschess.org.au/constitut...res_By-law.txt, or request a copy from me.

    useful info

    I received the following by David Flude:

    Hi Elliott

    Following are details of International junior events. I am trying to maximise coverage of this information supplied by Jenni Oliver. (For those who do not know Jenni she lives in Canberra and is a tireless worker for junior chess). I am therefore sending it to everybody on the Chess Victoria and Box Hill Chess Club distribution lists. I appreciate that some of you are going to receive this twice and that for others this may not be relevant

    David Flude


    Applications are now open for the various international tournaments.

    The website is www.australianjuniorchess.org.au

    Tournaments for which you can apply are

    AS IN PREVIOUS ARTICLE...


    Pros and Cons of attending an overseas event. (Jenni writing this. J)



    Many years ago only one person could represent Australia in each event and the strongest junior in each age category was selected. In 1998 this changed and multiple juniors could attend. However the ACF still has to endorse participants as being of the correct standard. While the focus has been on attending the World Youth, there are many others available such as the Olympiad event and Asian events, for juniors looking for international experience.



    The World Youth can be very confronting for a junior and some have said to me that they have preferred team events, such as the U16 Olympiad as being less stressful and more fun. You get more support from the other members of your team. It is also a much smaller event and tends to be easier to make friends with juniors from other countries.



    PROS



    Mixing with a large number of juniors all whom love chess.

    Enables Juniors and parents to experience a rich chess culture that is often lacking in Australia

    Every game tends to be hard and there is preparation and analysis to go with it, creating an intense learning experience

    The thrill of representing your country



    CONS



    Expense – this is probably the big one. The money spent going overseas could pay for a lot of top level coaching in Australia and traveling to strong adult tournaments such as Doeberl and SIO.

    Stress – every tournament has a level of stress and a child can put unrealistic expectations on themselves (and so can the parent). If a child is comparing their performance with that of stronger team members, this can have a negative outcome.



    Brett Tindall has some very informative topics at his business website



    http://www.sydneyacademyofchess.com....p?showforum=31



    In particular “is my child strong enough to take part in an overseas event” is worth reading before applying.



    The other thing to bear in mind, is that this is not a holiday. You might find yourself paying quite large amounts for accommodation and then being housed in a school dormitory or a 2 star hotel. The organizers sometimes find themselves underestimating numbers and last minute accommodation can be very bad. Australia is usually well organised and books early to guarantee the best accommodation possible, but we are not a high profile chess country and there can sometimes be problems which have to be accepted.



    On the positive side children usually have a wonderful time and find it a very exciting experience.



    The other thing to remember is that the ACF has no role in organizing these events. It will be up to one or more of the parents going to step forward and apply to be the team manager/management committee. There is a lot of advice available from past managers, so it is not as intimidating as it sounds.



    So please start thinking now if you are prepared to help. A lack of volunteers for this valuable position, will result in a less satisfactory experience for all.

    All players have the right to appeal

    9. Appeals

    9.1 An applicant may appeal the results of a selection within 7 days after having been informed,

    pursuant to clause 8, of the results of the selection.

    9.2 Appeals shall given to the Selections Director and shall be accompanied by a $200 appeal fee

    which shall be refunded if the appeal is upheld.

    9.3 Appeals shall be on the basis that either:

    9.3.1 There was a material error or omission in the selection process that has disadvantaged the

    applicant.

    9.3.1.1. Paragraph 9.3.1 does not apply to an alleged material error or omission relating to the

    eligibility of an applicant for selection, other than the eligibility requirement in paragraph 4.3.1.

    9.3.2 That the applicant was clearly ranked such that no selectors could have reasonably given the

    applicant that ranking based on the information supplied to the selectors.

    Note: It is not sufficient to appeal on the basis that a player thinks that he/she should have been

    selected. The ranking of the selectors has to be clearly incorrect and unreasonable.

    9.4 On receipt of an appeal all players involved in the selection which is subject to the appeal shall be

    advised that the appeal has been lodged.

    9.5 Each player against whose selection an appeal has been lodged shall be given a copy of the appeal

    and an opportunity to state in writing, within 7 days after having been given the appeal, his or her

    case with respect to the appeal.

    10 Appeals Tribunal

    10.1 The Council shall appoint a person known as the ACF Appeals Tribunal Convenor (ATC) who shall

    be an ACF Honorary Life Member, a former ACF President or an eminent person with appropriate

    knowledge of chess and of the issues involved in the appeal.

    10.2 The ATC shall appoint two other persons, each being either an ACF Honorary Life Member, a

    former ACF President or Deputy President or an eminent person as described in clause 10.1 to form a

    three person tribunal with the ATC. (available from http://www.auschess.org.au/constitut...Feb%202008.pdf online)

    Appeals will close on Monday 21 April 2008



    PLAYERS SELECTED FOR WORLD YOUTH AND JUNIOR EVENT!!

    If you have a * next to your name, let me know by Monday 28 April 2008 whether or not you are accepting your selection (sooner is better, as I can then pass the selection down to the next person on the list)

    If you do NOT have a * next to your name, let me know by Monday 5 May whether or not you will be going regardless of whether or not you have the primary selection.



    ALL OTHER PLAYERS

    I will be giving you the email addresses of all people wishing to attend the events you are playing, as well as sending you the information (when it is put up by FIDE) and you can organise it amongst yourself - if there is free food/accom for a player in an age group, then it is the individual with the * next to their name who will get it. You may contact me for advice if needed.



    EVERYONE!!!

    Check your email daily, as I will be emailing you if there are any appeals regarding your selection, or if you are a person without a * and you become someone with a * (due to the fact the person(s) above you turned down their selection) to let you know this has happened.



    PLEASE NOTE

    U8-U18 divisions are held AT THE SAME TIME therefore you CANNOT player in multiple divisions in the one tournament. If you have a * next to your name in more then one division of the World Youths, let me know which of these divisions you wish to play in.

    Site has now been fixed and is ready to go, so for anyone who has had similar problems, should be all sorted.

    Also if you are having trouble displaying the screen, make sure you are using internet explorer

    Unless, like the enlightened, you are using a Mac with OSX 10.5.

    That is, as I understand it, that OS doesn't support IE and vice versa.

    I have tested Safari b4, Firefox, Opera, iCab and OmniWeb on my iMac. Of those, only Firefox and Opera diplay the entry form page properly - the others truncate the little events boxes.
