DOEBERL CUP

54 Victorians made the journey to Canberra to play in the 2004 Doeberl Cup.
23 in the Premier, 16 in the Major (U2000) and 15 in the Minor (U1600).
Winner of the Premier was Zong-Yuan Zhao from NSW on 6/7, with three of the
four second place getters being Victorians. Congratulations to Igor
Bjelobrk,
Peter Froehlich & David Smerdon who tied with GM Ian Rogers on 5.5
With two other Victorians, GM Darryl Johansen & Mirko Rujevic finishing on
5
the Vics were well represented.
Probably the big suprise was in the first round when Victorian Domagoj
Dragicevic
defeated GM Rogers. Unfortunately he couldn't keep up his giant killing
effort
and only won one further game to finish on 3.5
Top scoring Vics in the Major, won by James Obst from SA on 6.5, were Ken
Holt,
Bas Van Riel & Nur Yachou who all finished on 5.
The Minor was won by Nicholas Chernih on 6.5 with the best Vic being James
Morris
on 5.
** Dragicevic-Rogers and some other games from this event are shown in the
games
section.

ps The new editor has secured an amazing coup. His first edition contains many long paragraphs of introduction by Gazza. To my memory, this is a first in print. The un-editted style of Gazza is usually only available to those hardy souls who attend the Mexican AGM and listened to the President's report read verbatim. But now, in this Newsletter, the full appreciation of his style can be viewed. (I know a few cognoscente will take me to task and point out that Gazza has been published as Newspaper Columnist for many years, and that his style has always appeared succinct. But of course, in those instances, there has been a Sub-Editor at play). I encourage you to start your collection of these newsletters today, and in particular to store the unique opening address by Gazza.

The editor's lot is not an easy one.

Agreed. So it is best not to get off to a bad start.



I would suggest that the title is meant to be visionary and the periodical's regional flavor will be defined by the contributers.

I find this a strange interpretation. The ChessVictoria website, one would presume, is for Victorian chess. I see no information for any event from these clubs Albury(??), Bendigo, Bosnia, Frankston R.S.L, Mentone, Chess Ideas Ripponlea (??),Melboune, Darkhorse and Serbia. I see little information on Ballarat or Geelong.

I see a lot of information displayed for Dandenong, Croydon, Whitehorse Jnr, Hobsans Bay, ChessVictoria events (Interclub, Championships, juniors etc).

I am suggesting that there is a deliberate agenda by ChessVictoria to alienate its own membership, although I am hesitant to say whether the specific mentality is consciously or unconsciously motivated.

Barry makes a nonsense claim that tries to put the onus on the clubs themselves for the lack of information. This claim can easily be shown to be false.

For example, Let us look at Ballarat. Ballarat has its own website,with a 2005 calender, is an efficiently run club with a seasoned group of competent organisers. Yet,the only information about Ballarat on the CV calender is about the Begonia Open. Clearly nobody from ChessVictoria has contacted anyone from Ballarat chess club since no other event is displayed on the club calender. So why is Begonia displayed on the calender?, or ought the question be Why is Ballarats 2005 calender not shown on the website?

See you can't have it both ways can you. ChessVictoria ought not to be promoting events it deems important like Begonia, presumably without consultation from anyone at Ballarat, and continually ignoring other important events like the Melbourne Club Championship, which by the way is older and more traditional then ChessVictoria itself. Nor should it not publish calenders from all its affiliated clubs, which quite frankly ought to be ChessVictorias job.

If we investigate the misleading CV calender further we would also quickly notice that the Doeberl Cup, Zonal and World juniors are there. Why?, isnt this a function of the ACF? What have any of these events got to do with chess played in Victoria?

Using Barry's misguided reasoning- Do you think that Fide actually contacted ChessVictoria and said to them "Please put our World Youth Championships on your ChessVictoria website". Of course they didn't, so the question remains What is motivating the choice of information being displayed on the CV calender?

Well I think I have the answer. Politics. Maybe if Starter wants we could articulate these opinions in a completely new thread.



Have any of the inner-city contributions been knocked back?
I also find this statement extremely naive, as it attempts to make the innocent look guilty.
We, at MCC of course have not contibuted anything to the calender. But the information is available at the club, it does physically exist and is circulating in the public sphere. But we cannot give somebody anything if we don't get asked, can we. I would have thought that the first port of call for ChessVictoria would have been to ask its own clubs "whats happening?". But instead what we get is public announcements from specially selected clubs who have somehow telepathically have been able to contact ChessVictoria.
This gives a skewered view to any potential new player who unfortunately does not have the correct information available for deciding where is the best place for them to play chess.

Given the historical hostility of the relationship between ChessVictoria and MCC one ought to be entitled to ask - Why would an organisation produce information that continually remains insensitive to the needs of all its members? Why? Maybe another thread could answer that.

Cheers FG7

P.S My understanding is that ChessIdeas is not an affiliated club?
P.P.S The ACF ought to re-address the abnomilty of Albury Chess club (just dont click on the Victorian link on the ACF page) ;)

Hi David,

You'll have to explain this better for those of us who are not au fait with Victorian politics. Why exactly has Melbourne Chess Club not gone out of its way to make sure that ChessVictoria is aware of all its events and that they are suitably publicised?

Surely you can only claim other clubs have received preferential treatment if you have actually provided your club's details to ChessVictoria in the first place?

Dear Greg,

. Why exactly has Melbourne Chess Club not gone out of its way to make sure that ChessVictoria is aware of all its events and that they are suitably publicised?

Again the same inference that projects guilt upon the innocent. See the problem is one of communication. I have never seen anybody from ChessVictoria visit MCC, in any official capacity with the sole exception of GW, in the last two years. So when we talk to to ChesssVictoria we tend to talk to GW, who currently is not returning our calls. At our last committee meeting a motion was passed that "MR S.Taylor was to ensure some form of communication between ChessVictoria and MCC was to occur".

It is exceedingly difficult to understand how ChessVictoria operates since we cannot communicate effectively with them. That said the responsibility of producing the ChessVictoria calender rests with ChessVictoria not MCC, we pay our affiliation fees and are surely entitled to be represented at a level that is of equal to other clubs.


Surely you can only claim other clubs have received preferential treatment if you have actually provided your club's details to ChessVictoria in the first place?

We have no problem with providing information to ChessVictoria, but you cannot provide what you havent been asked for. I do not understand how other clubs like Croydon or Box Hill are able to develop some sort of telepathic relationship with ChessVictoria needs,while others are basically ignored. I can claim preferential treatment since, we do not have an ear on ChessVictoria. ChessVictoria, in case your not aware, does not have individual membership, it is a configuration of affiliated clubs. All affiliated clubs deserve to be communicated with, not just the ones who are friendly with the current executive.

Cheers David

David,

I don't want to get too involved with Victorian politics as I don't want to destroy my relationship with yourself or the MCC as a whole, particularly given your successful running of last year's Australian Masters.

I'm just saying, for example, in the case of the new club Croydon, Frosty has gone out of his way to promote this new club. Did he receive preferential treatment from CV? I doubt it, but you would know better than me. It looks to me as if he has simply utilised the state body as part of a whole range of initiatives to promote his new club.

You seem to think you should only provide information to CV when they ask for it.

This marketing-type word that I'm about to use chills me to my bones, but I'll say it anyway: you have to be PROACTIVE.

Greg

Sorry David but I think you don't have the job description of 'editor' nailed down. An editor is not an investigative reporter. The editor will proactively add relevant pieces of information which may be at hand (like Begionia) without going to the trouble of tracking down the calendar of every club by trawling the internet.

I agree that there should have been a call for submissions. Perhaps not having that was an oversight. Perhaps it was done an you didn't see it. Either way, you know the editorial position exists, you know who fills it, inundate the poor bugger with information until Frosty starts complaining that the newsletter is too CBD focused.

That's all I have to say, please excuse me not replying to the remainder of your message but most of it seems directed at Trevor rather than me.

Hi fg7 (David?),

A few thoughts occur to me, but since I am not au-fait with Victorian "chess politics" as yet it is probably silly of me to speak up ... but hopefully, if I am putting my foot in my mouth, you can forgive me this indiscretion as the impetuousness of "youth" (in chess terms anyway).

When I decided to look into starting a club out at Croydon I spent a considerable amount of time researching ... looking at existing clubs nearby, finding out who was who, hanging out here on the board, emailing and calling people, trying to develop some relationships, so that I had access to crucial information about what would and would NOT work at a chess club.

That process led me to Trevor and the team at Box Hill. At that stage I didn't even know that he (and others there) were on the committee for CV. If I didn't live out at Lilydale, or if I worked in the city instead of at Mitcham ... who knows, maybe I might've been pestering you at MCC?

CVs interest in Croydon is probably partly because of personal relationships that Croydon has developed ... yes, that's a fair cop. But that's not a bad thing in and of itself. They have a duty to promote Victorian chess, and new clubs don't start every week, so I would be surprised if they weren't keen to help us get started.

BTW, its not just that Croydon is "friendly" with CV evecutives ... one of our team is one of them, so its not like we could ignore CV if we tried. :)

Anyway, we've worked damn hard on our marketing plans (!) and I'm personally pleased to see them bearing fruit. I did an interview with the local newspaper yesterday that (hopefully) will turn out well. There are many other marketing activities that we'll be pursuing too, so expect to see more about Croydon around the traps. There's a huge untapped market for chess out here that needs to be developed.

For my part I would love to see all clubs receiving a good level of coverage at state and national level ... and I would also like to see them all promoting themselves more as we all have something valuable to offer our respective communities.

Regards,

Steve

Dear Frosty,

I am rapt that Victorian Chess has people like yourself who are prepared to give it a go and make it work. I wish you and your club the best of success and yes, I do agree, I have often thought that the area around Ringwood was clearly in need of a chess club.

I also do not begrudge the fact that you have friends on the inside of Chess Victoria. In fact it is handy to know since it opens up avenues of communication. Maybe you could ask your friend to open up the communication channels, I would love to talk to the new chess editor for ChessVictoria by phone,email or in person, alternatively he may want to talk to Greg (El presidente) on 94163149 at MCC, any day except Friday between 4-10pm.

Proactive is a perfectly acceptable word if used correctly. The abuse of the language by (mainly) managers is a sore point for me. But like the night, I think we need to reclaim the respectable words that are our birthright! Don't give up on proactive because then the managers would have won.

But this is a troll, disguised as being helpful.

I note that Trevor has passed along some information to Rob already which is great. I will email Andrew LeRoy (Croydon Chess VP and CV Executive Member) and ask him to follow this up at the CV end. I think it would be worthwhile for you or Greg to contact Andrew directly. His details are on the CV website (CV Office Bearers (http://www.chessvictoria.com/Ob_0(4).htm)).

I don't seem to have your email or Greg's (not on the MCC website either?), so when I email Andrew I will copy in Bill Jordan and ask him to pass the email back to you and Greg.

The CV News newsletter is available on the chess victoria website (http://www.chessvictoria.com/).

David:

I was writing a long reply to all your posts in this thread on the weekend, but my connection ran out before I finished it.

I think perhaps it's extraneous anyway.

Bottom line is, I don't really know (or much care) about any politics or differences that may exist between MCC and Chess Victoria.

I welcome submissions from anyone. I'd love nothing better than to see every club represented in every issue.

I hope you, or anyone else from MCC who feels inclined, will send things to me (cvnews@chessvictoria.com), whether it be information about upcoming tournaments, reports on current tournaments, or whatever. A general statement about the club that can stay as a permanent introduction to your section in the club news section would also be useful.

The first issue (have you read it?) contains all the MCC related information I had to hand. You're not on the Calendar, and there's nothing on your website. You want to be asked? I'm asking. Send your tournament dates to CV to be added to the Calendar, and when they're approaching, send the details to me and they'll be in CV News.

Incidentally, Malcolm Pyke is down as the contact for MCC, both on the CV website and in CV News. Is this no longer correct?

Garvin already showed you, but for the record I don't think the forum software differentiates between accented és and regular ones when it comes to usernames. It certainly doesn't care what I use to log in with.

You can get an acute accent é by holding down ALT and typing out 0233 on the number pad. Alternatively you can use the Character Map to copy it to the clipboard for pasting. Just type "charmap" (sans quotes) at the windows run box and hit enter (assuming the charmap component is installed, but it usually is).

Good question of yours Baz, and I will watch with interest to see fg7 or Recherche post a response.



Chess multi-media outlets are rather labyrinthian and hard to understand these days.
Your own NSW Prez seems unwilling to post on the fledgling new bulletin board (http://p066.*******.com/b**************) even though it is an initiative of a NSW member. By default we find this new board with VIC writers and NSW readers.....a strange niche market. Usually, NSW citizens don't feel quite so muffled that they are reduced to the status of readers. A few are in the jenni category of time-challenged; but the rest? Courageous posters such as TCN and arosar are of course unhibited by any imagined boundaries.

(I wonder if the Punters Club can devise a bet on which happens first
> MCC details in CV Newsletter
>> Prez posts on UCJ? :hmm: )

I notice now that your new signature line is almost right on this topic; you always did have your finger on the pulse.

By calling them courageous you are impling others that dont post are not. I dont believe you should make any such presumption.
His language is still as vulgar as ever.
Personally I see no merit in his board and thus choose not to post on it. I think many others may well feel the same.
My posting on it would in my opinion give it credibilty it does not deserve.

I do however read it as I wish to keep tabs on what rubbish he is posting and whether he says anything slanderous or defamatory.

In the meantime, hopefully some of the MCC regulars on the CV News distribution list will chip in with contributions.

If someone from the club feels so inclined, they might want to write something general about the club for inclusion in your entry, with information such as the club's street address, your policy on visitors, your opening hours, and so on.


I am curious is this information actually ChessVictoria club news?

It's not technically club news, no. However there is no obvious section where it would be better placed, and making a section all its own would just give it more status. I have left it in the same place that the previous editor put it, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has them.

I was under the impression that efforts were being made this year to integrate various independant schools events with the CV interschool competition, including the Chess Kids events. My understanding was that such competitions could serve as qualifying events whereby teams could gain entry into the regional/zonal semi-finals, from where they might potentially qualify for the state finals and then the national finals. There was discussion of issues related to this and its implication for ACF schools competition fees at the CV AGM last year and also at the ACF meeting up at Mt Buller last January.

I am not aware of whether this has gone ahead, or to what degree, however.

As for the lack of affiliation, obviously it is an issue, and it's the reason that the Chess Kids stuff is at the bottom of the list rather than in the alphabetical position it might be expected to occupy. I can't speak as to the reasons the previous editor had for including it, but I'm including it because I feel that it's useful information to the chess community in Victoria, and because it has been included in the past and I don't have a particularly strong reason for excluding it.

In general I'd prefer to encourage organisations like Chess Kids to have stronger ties to Chess Victoria, and to become affiliated, rather than going out of my way to draw a line of demarcation. I care more about the chess playing public than I do about the politics involved, and I don't think it does anyone any good to have separate organisations in competition, each pretending that the other doesn't exist.


it's at the bottom out of alphabetical order which might imply it's an advert ...

... but adverts are usually at the top of such newsletters for the sake of prominence

There are no paid advertisements in CV News. The common reason for having paid advertisements in publications is to support the cost of staff, publication, and distribution. Since the CV News staff (me, and anyone who submits something for publication) works on a volunteer basis, CV News is published electronically, and CV News is distributed free via email, I see no justification for having paid advertisements in CV News. I think paid advertisements are something worth avoiding where possible.

Unless the CV committee someday decides otherwise, CV News policy is not to have any paid advertisements.

Of course, to say there are no advertisements at all in CV News would be silly - after all, the basic idea behind the publication is for it to be a space where Chess Victoria affiliated clubs can advertise their tournaments to chess players in Victoria.

Information not directly linked to any CV affiliated club (such as information on the Doeberl Cup, Oceania Zonal results, or the Chess Kids entry) is included at the editor's discretion. Basically, I'll include information about something if I think it is either interesting or useful (or both) to Victorian chess players.

The last couple of weeks, yes, but the last issue was almost two weeks ago now.

Also the general idea isn't for me to be scouring the web for the information. CV News is a service that the clubs make use of (should they wish to) by sending in submissions.

I do actually look around for information like that, but clubs shouldn't be relying on my efforts on the side to get their club news into CV News. :)

Actually, a good test of whether thaws are occurring is whether the post I made 4 minutes ago survives the MOD action. ;)

All long-time readers of this Bulletin Board MUST get hold of CV News #05-06. It contains details of MCC events in a Chess Victoria publication. :eek: :eek: ;)

Well done to all. :cool:

The last two issues contained MCC stuff too. #04 had a small championship update with some published games. #05 had info for the Anzac Day weekender. :)

hi Rob

Put post #86 in the category 'marketing puff'. ;)

Your next challenge is to print some CV minutes; or at least a summary of the CV Executive meeting held 17/4/5.

Hehe.

If your to busy to collect the data Recherche, I will volunteer. Tell me the time and place and I will produce an ethnography of the event for you. I will guarantee you a certified copy of the 'executive meeting', which you can duly print up for all to see.

Cheers Fg7
P.S
Is it still held at the phone booth?

Since my aside has led to these further asides I feel some responsibility to slightly defend the CV Executive. While I was a member there was never a problem with a quorum, and many times a full turn-out.
Venues included
the GURU's shop :uhoh: ,
the Box Hill station :eek: ,
Blind Bight :confused: ,
and BH Senior Citizens Club ;) .

But never would a phone booth have been appropriate. :naughty:

CV News #05-08 was delivered to e-mail addresses yesterday. Well done Rob to bring Chess VICTORIA news to the public.
The prize money in the forthcoming Dandenong Autumn Open is very attractive and deserves all the publicty it can get.
Event starts May 18. It would be good if someone from DCC could post updates here. :cool:

^ If nobody from DCC does, I can at least post the weekly updates that get submitted to CV News.
