If you sign up for concession, you must provide valid proof of concession at mt buller. Failure to provide valid proof of concession will not result in a refund.

To add more information,

Failure to pay correct entry fee and if claiming concession entry fees, failure to prove entitlement to concession entry fees, will result in non entry. Filling in the entry form without payment is not acceptable, this will also result in non entry.

The organising team also retain the right to ask in person for proof of concessional entry fee claims.

Bill and I had this discussion on some other thread, where he gave me to useful advice "The SEARCH function is your friend".

So, just go to 'Enter a keyword' on the Mt B. site, type ENTER and click GO.

Gray: I'm working on the site now.

Starter: The search function isn't working at the moment, and it's not built for site search anyway, it's built for game search. E.g you type Johansen and all his games will come up.

you can enter online if you wish. In the coach booking form and chess entry form it says- send entries to:
Mt Buller Chess
PO Box 201
Burnside SA 5066

So if you are making out a cheque, address it to Mt Buller chess.

That is for titled players only.

so that would mean that the commentary is not completely accurate ;)

What is not accurate is a good question.
From what K. says, if you click on Search the software doesn't ..(except for a small subset of data), and if you click on Confirmed Entries then apparently that is a subset too.
We will watch with interest to see who has good logic.

K. :rolleyes:
There is a section that says
SEARCH! Keyword GO


and there is another button that says
Game SEARCH.

I was referring to the first in my response to gg''.

I was referring to the same search box. The first one is quick search, the second one is advanced search.

Hi All,

I have been waiting for the early bird time to expire which it now has for the Open. I am preparing for the schools this weekend but on 6th December I will send ******** the updated entries. At the moment we have about 60 confirmed entries for the Lidums Australian Open Chess Championship which is about where I was hoping to be at this stage in the Entry Cycle.

Regards
George Howard

Suggestion:

Very many people like to know "who is going." The effect is often, "if X is going, so will I." Perhaps a daily list of entries would help boost numbers.

Start a que and people will join it.

Good idea, but I still have no list from any of the organisers.

Hello Matt,

Later tonight after the first days play at the ASTC, Charles and myself will be inputting names into swiss perfect for all events that have entered so far. We will then display all players in rating order on here and STML will put them on www.mtbullerchess.com
Hope this helps.

Mr Jeo sir, are you collecting, storing and using data securely?
Do you have a privacy policy at all?
Did you perform any in-depth UAT on your site? What sort of TDD and VTA did you do?

I sorta wonder these cos in the shouts TP reckons your site accepts credit cards - but I suspect you're using some sort of 3rd party gateway, no? There just does not appear to be any signage on your site to warn users this.

Shall I post these in the Privacy thread?

It's a third party gateway, 2checkout.com. The only data we get to see is the following:

Event name, Type of entry, Full name, Address, Australian, Gender, Date of birth, Email, 2Checkout Reference number.

This data is sent to George and Garvin via Email and then deleted from the server.

We do not see or store Credit Card information.

i'm sure skip would have done an exhaustive UAT, TDD followed by a VTA.
goes without saying.
