The next major event at Box Hill is the 2005 WINTER Interclub.
It looks at this stage that Box Hill will field 2 A Grade teams, 5 B Grade teams, and 7 C Grade teams.
Each team has four players.
CV does not intend a D Grade this year, so many of our D-Graders will be 'promoted'.

Entries from other Clubs are encouraged.
I expect quite a few from Dark Horse (and I hope they have put their transfers in).
Also hoping for Dandenong, Melbourne, Serbia, Croydon, Bosnia and perhaps Elwood.

Entries in by Friday 8 July for the first round 15 July.

The top grade of the 2005 Box Hill RAINBOW (grades) championships is a little stronger than last year; and this is obviously a step in the right direction for our Tuesday evening club night.

In the ORANGE grade, a welcome entrant is Gary Bekker who we have not seen around the Club for a while.

Full results from round 1 can be viewed through the link. (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0507trb/round1.htm)

We have moved on from round 1 to rounds 2 and 3 with a few adjustments to the field in this event which is essentially 5 divisions, each a round-robin; no intermingling. The problem at this time of the year with such events is winter illness and education committments start to take priority over chess!
Anyhow, the fields have settled down now and some good battles were seen on Tuesday night.
The RED (top) division of the RAINBOW tournament (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0507trb/round3.htm) has got lucky in that the vacancy caused by one drop-out is now filled admirably by a recent arrival in Australia who comes from as far away as Coburg to play at our Club. He has a good game against Marcus Raine until hostilities finished in a draw (a symmetrical English_Catalan variant).

Oh the joy of someone who can estimate correctly. The actual field size turned out to be 60!. ;)

This size was about 30% up on the previous two ROOKIES and QUEENS Cup events, and both pleased and stretched the organisers. :)
James Morris earned his name on yet another ROOKIES badge apinned to the ROOKIES trophy that is actually a shield. :clap:
Jenny Fan won the QUEENS for the month of August. :clap:
The adult prize fund was won again by Leon Kempen, this time from Marcus Raine; Leon says it pays for the petrol, as he comes from Watsonia. :cool:

Prize-winners in divisions b,c,d,e,f,and g will be listed this week on the Box hill web-site; in a hurry to get home to the gin_and_tonic the Captain left the SP files behind. :doh:

The crowd of visitors was dramatic. Very few vacant seats left around the circumference of our large hall. When we were 'inspected' by Gary Bekker, he remarked that it was a very busy chess happening. :)

Did we make any mistakes? (It now pays to own up to these early before the Blogger_makers feel the pressure to fill their columns.) Well, yes, we did neglact to advertise a starting time on the flyer and the web-site. Only trapped one entrant though...so nearly scot-free. :uhoh:

Thanks due to a lot of people...perhaps Kerry can list? :cool:

Yes it was a terrific turn up by 60 competitors - many of whom have not played in a Rookie's Cup before. There were also a large number of parents watching the games.

Thanks to all the people who helped today! :clap:

First, thanks to the Potter boys who had all the boards and clocks set up by the time I came back with goodies for the tea-room at 12.00 pm.

The 12.30 start was a little late - as there were so many late entrants. (We were still entering 6 players details after the first round had started at 1.00 pm).

Thanks are due to Christine, Linda and other mums who had a busy time in the tea -room today.

A wonderful job was undertaken by Gerrit Hartland, as usual: a few arbitering queries by players today.

Thanks to Trevor in taking the money and entering the scores, as well as finalising the prize list with Gerry.

A great job was done by a new mum - whose name I didn't catch and later by Dominic Canale's dad in taking the scores.

Little India and her friend Lauren drew the lucky numbers for the winners of the lightning round - the prizes being the fabled Box Hill doughnuts - a highly sought after prize!!!

Thanks to the all the competitors who helped tidy away the boards after the competition.

Lastly, thanks to Sean who will post the final results shortly.

Turnout for the ROOKIES and QUEENS cup is limited a little by the School Hols....but strong sompetition for the adults money prize and for the ROOKIES shield.

Games started at 12.45 even though we forgot to list this on the flyer. :rolleyes:
A few arrived late.

We are being treated to an exhibition which I believe is armour-piercing; but I don't want to ask for more description. But something keeps glinting in the sunlight.

Can James Morris win his third ROOKIES and thus keep the SHIELD? Or will Jesse Jager upset this well laid plan.

Well basically Frank, it can be anyone of three concepts...

>> an encouragement to recognise a special helper who arrives early sets up umpteen boards and pieces

But, I must confess the format that can be viewed through the link is mighty impressive. Almost good enough for the CGM's BLOG. I mean o/s viewers would be wondering how the Antipodes do it.

It would seem to be simply a matter of referring to this thread and the thread for the 1st half of the year at Box Hill to ascertain very comfortably the winners this year. Mischa is correct of course, ( nothing new in that - she should be in matters of this nature!!) but the long number of posts to this point make me wonder about post counts :hmm:

I deleted my post a minute or so after lodging it because I saw a type of access that I have that you don't have.......I can look at the SP tables of ROOKIES on the PC at the premises. (You must have captured the post rather quick; unless you have access to the bb trash-can?)

But macavity points out my deletion was unwarranted because full access is available on this thread and probably on the BHCC/WHJC web-site too (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/) .

Am I the only one promoting juniors for groups for which I am not a member? For example, the GURU promotes juniors in Vic but is not a member of CV himself. And a/c is promoting images to juniors and they will not let him display his membership. I am sure I could think of others.

ps Fortunately, the ROOKIES-detail has been posted here overnight by Mischa. As the ROOKIES shield ownership is building to an exciting finish in November, Mischa may like to post the remainder of her accurate analysis regarding who can win ownership of the shield in perpetuity.

Re: interclub ... certainly Mike was keen, as was one or two others ... but we couldn't find four (4) players within the same rating range to match the Interclub format.

Now if Interclub offered a format where there was a "total rating" for the group, as opposed to individual ratings for the players, then we might've been able to manage a team in one of the sections by putting up one highly-ranked player and three lesser-ranked players ... but alas, it was not to be.

Perhaps next year we might be better placed, as we've added three or four more good adult players since winter, plus my Jared will have a rating by then too.

We actually came up with 3 new awards to cover some encouragement criteria (sometimes the encouragement awards can carry the baggage of being encouragement for turning up & coming last, or a cheering up prize).

We have "Top Debut" for a player in their first event.

"Rising Star" an award for an improving player.

"Young Achiever" for good play from someone in Year 2 or below (ie Under 8-ish).

We have been getting quite flash (but inexpensive) trophies with big gold stars. Quite dazzling, very well received and much more sought after than the generic encouragement award - although we have a box of those we can trot out if we still want to pass out more.

starter, how's me mate Mike Smith from Croydon been going in his tournament? I suspect he's been doing rather well, maybe a dark horse (not of the Box Hill kind). I have to play him this Thursday in our Club Championship.

deFrosted

Mike has become victim of the Flavoured Dude and is shaking his head in dismay. I think he will be looking for revenge on Thursday night.

... I didnt quite understand the question but if you are talking about the NGV venue, yes I did, however complicating things with all those security guards, I saw them giving one of the juniors some trouble, because they did not know he was a competitior.

Yeah we had the same issue
But once they eastablished who was who I thought they did a great job.
The whole place was lovely and sombre and awfully impressive.Most players commented to me that if they had a venue like that for the whole tourny they would play it every year.

We had a slight hiccough as I used more than 3 digits, in the Federation field in Swiss PERFECT, to define rating group.
This confused the weibye-meister until sorted out.
His comments this arvo. were
The federation field is documented as being only four characters wide.
(At home I have the exact file format from Mr Rozycki himself - I seem to recall it only being three chars.)

In the industry, we would say that exceeding the allocated space results in "undefined behaviour", and what you are seeing is very typical of "undefined behaviour" - appears to work just fine and then doesn't!


It explains all. :doh: ;)

starterSP not only suffers from failing to validate input data but also contributes to it due to input field sizes in the add player screen accepting more characters than the actual field widths stored in the .trn file.

SP however adds to the confusion by displaying the excess characters in the list of players screen.
e.g. The Federation filed in the add player screen accepts 5 characters and displays all 5 in the list of players window. However if you close the program and restart it the Federation field now only shows the first 4 characters previously entered in the list of players screen. This of course is only to be expected since the Federation field in the .trn file is only 4 characters wide.

A similar problem also occurs in the DOB field where 5 digit years, 3 digit months and days can be entered.

The surname and firstname fields accept well in excess of 25 characters yet only store the first 25 characters of each in the .trn file. Likewise the club field accepts more than 30 characters yet only stores the first 30 in the .trn file.

Overall it is just poor programming practice, which I have seen numerous times over my 30 years in IT. It virtually always contributes to confusion for the user and problems with the program noy performing as the user and often the programmer intended.

deFrosted, Mike has become victim of the Flavoured Dude and is shaking his head in dismay. I think he will be looking for revenge on Thursday night.
He may well have been seeking revenge, but I managed to heap indignity upon injustice :cool: and beat him (he never looked quite comfortable against my 2.c3 Sicilian and missed a trap I set for him around move 12 which cost him a rook).

I will post the game score in the "Frosty's OTB Games" thread shortly.

In a thrilling finish to the Box Hill Tuesday Spring SWISS tournament Gary Bekker came direct from an end-of-year exam to face-down the Flavoured Dude in a Kings Gambit free-for-all...and he won.....a nice guy coming first..... :clap: :clap:

Gary had advised the previous week that he may miss the start of play owing to exam and travel commitments, so he was a little rushed as he sat down to contemplate his first move. He was a lot more flummoxed when he realised he had spent the week preparing to play with the white pieces, and somehow he actually had the black pieces.

David Flude, playing white and inviting the Kings Gambit is a challenge to anyone's preparation. So Gary, who needed the full point to win the tournament, was seemingly at longish odds.

However, as the game progressed, the choice of opening proved to be the Flavoured Dude's undoing. The FD gained an overwhelming but scrambled position where a quick win was on offer (as shown in the after-game analysis) but one wrong step and the win evaporated in a flurry of tactics. Gary played very cooly in a difficult position and scored the upset win. A poor choice of opening by the FD was punished for the counter-chances it gave Gary.


Full details later today.
