Otago CC wanted a 9 round norm tournament this year, which meant the Rapid didn't fit in with the schedule. At the same time, the All Canterbury Championships also needs somewhere to go, since Labour Weekend is a bit tight with a big SI Champs (nobody ever travels to both, so both fields get weakened). Canterbury CC's solution is, for this year, to run them in conjunction with one another!

2012 South Island Rapid Championships, incorporating the 2012 All Canterbury Championships.

Sponsored by Benson Insurance Brokers and Dancing Waters winery.

Format: NZCF Rapid-rated 6 round Swiss, using a time control of 25 minutes per player with 10 seconds per move added from the first move.

Entry fee: $30 for juniors and $40 for everyone else. $20 NZCF registration applies to unregistered players. To enter, reply in this thread, or email me at canterbury@chess.org.nz (or download an entry form from our website in my signature, and post it).

Prizes: This is a class 1 event in the Think Big Grand Prix, so guaranteed minimum prizes of $1400 in cash and wine (note that wine cannot be awarded to players who are under the age of 18 on the day, in which case book prizes will be substituted). In addition to 1st, 2nd and 3rd, grade prizes and round-by-round upset prizes will also be awarded. The highest-placed South Island player will be the 2012 South Island Rapid champion, and the highest-placed Canterbury player will be the 2012 All Canterbury Champion.

Schedule:
Sunday, November 25
Registration: 8:30am - 9:00am
Players Meeting: 9:00am
Round One: 9:15am
Round Two: 10:30am
Round Three: 11:45am
Round Four: 1:30pm
Round Five: 2:45pm
Round Six: 4:00pm

Time for lunch is provided after Round 3, and prizegiving will follow the conclusion of Round 6.

Hopefully we get some travellers - the prizes are good, the field should be reasonable, and there's plenty of time to fly/drive in on Saturday, and get home on Sunday :).

It is the Myer Tan NZ Chess Grand Prix, not Think Big...
