i have this word that i am banned from tournaments because i was sick, i actually went to the hospital to be examined so i had to take time off from the last 2 games of st george summer open and give myself a rest. they value the importance of a chess round draws more than the health and well being of a chess player. so bottom line is, am i banned?

You must be referring to being banned from St. George events only. Of course for that to be true you would need to hear it from a St. George chess club official like The Wise Man and not just via hearsay.

Therefore there is either more to it than you are saying or they have no intention of banning you.
Either way lets wait and see what The Wise Man has to say.

You would also receive any official actions like suspensions in writing with the St George Chess Club letterhead at the top.

If you havent received anything like this, then it is pretty safe to ignore whatever you have heard. I say pretty safe cause I dont actually know;)

"you just do not bother to turn up"

I wouldn't take this comment too personally.

It's an expression that springs to mind for far too many chess organisers because many chessplayers don't have the urge to act in reasonable, well-mannered and polite ways.

(Perhaps that's who JH had in mind recently ... :hmm: )

I don't know your circumstances or the St George club rules but I would think most people would react sympathetically if you explained your circumstances. You never know what version of events was communicated to them either, particularly if you didn't provide the details first-hand.

Communication. Essential (and underutilised) chess tool.

I received your call re not being able to make it last Tuesday night...

It wouldn't have know anything about this rumour if I didn't come across it on the BB.

Whilst you missed the last two weeks of the tournament, it hasn't even crossed my mind that we should start banning people for little indiscretions. (a warning would be the most severe punishment that you would receive and even that is not a given...) I believe that the new committee will think likewise.
