As with last year, we have a 9 round FIDE-rated tournament for the SI Champs, which means the Rapid doesn'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 the George Trundle Masters, a big SI Champs and the Merv Morrison Memorial. As we did last year, Canterbury CC's solution is to run them in conjunction with one another!

2013 South Island Rapid Championships, incorporating the 2013 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 2 event in the Myer Tan Grand Prix, so guaranteed minimum prizes of $800 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). Prize fund will be increased if entries permit. The highest-placed South Island player will be the 2013 South Island Rapid champion, and the highest-placed Canterbury player will be the 2013 All Canterbury Champion.

Schedule:
Sunday, November 25
Registration: 9:00am - 9:30am
Players Meeting: 9:30am
Round One: 9:45am
Round Two: 11:00am
Round Three: 12:15pm
Round Four: 2:00pm
Round Five: 3:15pm
Round Six: 4:30pm

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

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

And I can't even edit it... That's what I get for copying last year's and making changes - missed one! Yes, November 10 is the correct date.

First two entries received - Michael Stevenson and Ray Bongalon.
