    2010 World Youth Championships Haikidiki, Greece Oct 19-31

    Dear All,

    There has been some concerns voiced in recent days about the situation in Greece. Those who had actually began planning their trip will have check the Australian Government's DFAT website on advisory on Greece for travellers (see here). As viewed today (updated by Government officials on Thursday, 01 April 2010), it says "Exercise Caution":
    This advice has been reviewed and reissued. It contains new information in the Summary and under Safety and Security: Civil Unrest/Political Tension (increase in bomb attacks). The overall level of the advice has not changed.

    Summary
    We advise you to exercise caution and monitor developments that might affect your safety in Greece because of the risk of terrorist attack.
    Pay close attention to your personal security and monitor the media for information about possible new safety or security risks.
    Bombings against government, commercial and other buildings, have increased. Some have resulted in death and/or injury. See the Civil Unrest/Political Tension section for further details.
    Violent rioting can break out in Greek cities with little warning. Australians should exercise particular care in the centre of Athens, Thessaloniki and other major cities. You should avoid all protests and demonstrations as they may turn violent.
    Strikes are occurring more frequently in Greece. Transport, including flights, could be affected. You should monitor the media and be prepared to change your travel plans in case of disruptions.
    Australian/Greek dual nationals should be aware the Greek Government introduced a new series of passports in 2007. Holders of old-style Greek passports should contact the nearest Greek Embassy or Consulate as soon as possible to obtain a new passport.
    Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 has spread throughout the world. The World Health Organisation (WHO) provides useful information for individuals and travellers on its website. For further information and advice to Australians, including on possible quarantine measures overseas, see our travel bulletin on Pandemic (H1N1) 2009.
    Be a smart traveller. Before heading overseas:
    organise comprehensive travel insurance and check what circumstances and activities are not covered by your policy
    register your travel and contact details, so we can contact you in an emergency
    subscribe to this travel advice to receive free email updates each time it's reissued.
    For the parents/juniors concerned, you should subscribe to the advisory for updates by email (as stated above).

    I still have no further information except that the events is still listed on Fide's Calendar for 2010 (see here). There is no website for the event as yet (that I know of). I have asked GM Ian Rogers, AusJCL Vice-President, to enquire on this matter.

    2010 World Youth Championships Halkidiki, Greece Oct 19-31

    I have further news relating to the 2010 World Youth Chess Championships in Halkidiki, Greece Oct 19-31. I have managed to contact someone from the organising committee, actually the Tournament Director WYCC 2010 IM George Mastrokoukos, and he assured me the official information will be released in a couple of weeks and the website will be going live soon. For the time being, here are some information:

    1) The date of arrival is 19 October and departure on 31 October.

    2) The closing date for registrations and bookings is 19 September.

    3) Hotel accommodation cost per person, per day with full board (3 meals daily) in the 5-star Porto Carras resort:

    a) FREE for invited players and the invited chief of each delegation (in double and triple rooms),

    b) For additional players and other accompanying persons of each national delegation: 59 euros in a triple room, 68 euros in a double room, 89 euros in a single room.

    4) Organising fee for each player (invited + additional), chief and accompanying person: 100 euros

    5) Entry fee for each player to be paid directly to FIDE: 70 euros (or 140 euros for each additional player).
    I also enquire about the security issues and here is what IM Mastrokoukos said:

    There is no need to worry. The demonstrations took place in Athens, the capital of the country, which is more than 600 km away from Halkidiki.

    The financial crisis and the demonstrations in Athens are not affecting the event in any way (and from the view of an insider: it is not as terrible as the media present it )
    In addition, GM Ian Rogers has suggested that Australians may think of actually flying to Sofia, Bulgaria and then travelling from there to Halkidiki.

    BTW, IM Mastrokoukos and the organisers are the same team which organised the World Youth CC in 2002 and 2004. Perhaps some of those who were in WYCC 2002 and 2004 can care to comment on the events?

    Change of Venue for 2011 World Youth Chess Championships

    The venue for the 2011 WYCC (17th-27th November 2011), originally slated to be held in Rio de Janeiro, has been changed to Caldas Novas, state of Goiás, Brazil.

    Fide's press release:
    The World Youth Chess Championship will be held in Caldas Novas, state of Goiás, Brazil from 17 to 27 of November. The original venue of Rio de Janeiro had to be changed due to many building works in the city and alterations to the hotels in preparation for the World Soccer Cup in 2014 and Summer Olympics 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

    Caldas Novas is one of the largest hydrothermal resorts in the world with natural hot water. The temperature of the water varies between 34 and 57 °C. Another attraction of Caldas Novas is Ecotourism, since the city is located near the Corumbá River and the Serra de Caldas where there is a natural park - Parque Estadual de Caldas Novas. In the surrounding area there is a lake - Lago de Piratininga - with boiling water; a reservoir called Lago de Corumbá of 64 square kilometers; and another river - the Rio Quente - which has natural warm water.

    The official website with all the information of the tournament will be release at 00:00 on 25th of February

    The new venue was approved at the Presidential Board meeting in Antalya, Turkey.

    Do not think that you know.
    Be aware of all that is and dwell in the infinite.
