    Default Current National Grand Prix Series – Forfeit Times

    State delegates are urged to ensure that organisers of events included in the current Grand Prix series are adequately informed about the significance of the Council’s recent email resolution:
    “That for all events in the 2009 ACF Grand Prix the forfeiture time will be 1 hour.”
    It is intended that this resolution apply to G-P events beginning on or after the date on which the latest version of the FIDE Laws of Chess comes into effect i.e. 1 July 2009. Any organiser of a 2009 Grand Prix event who is unwilling to comply with this requirement is advised to contact Grand Prix Director, Brian Jones, and/or a member of the ACF Executive without delay.
    Now that this requirement has been approved, Councillors might give some thought to possible consequences, should an organiser of a currently listed G-P event intentionally or unwittingly fail to adequately advertise and/or implement the requirement. Similar consideration might also be given to the need for agreed consequences should a potential organiser of a G-P event in future years indicate unwillingness to comply with
    the requirement indicated in the Council’s email resolution: “That for all events in the 2010 ACF Grand Prix the forfeiture time will be 30 minutes".
    Will be an interesting issue for Chess Victoria to action, but one presumes not for the 2009 Victorian Open week-ender.

    Default Fide Title Regulations & Rates Of Play

    FIDE LAWS OF CHESS
    REVISED FIDE RATINGS REGULATIONS

    FIDE Qualification Secretary Stewart Reuben has advised that FIDE recognition of FIDE title
    norm performances is now limited to events in which one of six rates of play is used.
    90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by
    30 minutes for remaining moves, with an increment of
    30 seconds per move, starting from move 1
    100 minutes for 40 moves, then
    50 minutes for 20 moves, then
    15 minutes for remaining moves, with an increment of
    30 seconds per move, starting from move 1
    90 minutes plus
    30 seconds per move
    120 minutes for 40 moves, followed by
    30 minutes for remaining moves
    120 minutes for 40 moves, then
    60 minutes for 20 moves, then
    30 minutes for remaining moves
    120 minutes for 40 moves plus
    60 minutes for remaining moves
    As usual, it may be safely assumed that time unused when a control point is reached is
    added to that made available immediately afterward.
    Applies to the 2009 Victorian Open Championship?

    Wrong on two counts.

    Firstly the new regulations come into effect from 1st July 2009.
    Secondly the part you quoted applies only to title norm events and the 2009 Victorian Open does not qualify as it is only 7 rounds.

    Organisers of events included in the current Grand Prix series should note
    “That for all events in the 2009 ACF Grand Prix the forfeiture time will be 1 hour.”
    It is intended that this resolution apply to G-P events beginning on or after the date on which the latest version of the FIDE Laws of Chess comes into effect i.e. 1 July 2009. Any organiser of a 2009 Grand Prix event who is unwilling to comply with this requirement is advised to contact GP Director, Brian Jones.
    And the far future:
    “That for all events in the 2010 ACF Grand Prix the forfeiture time will be 30 minutes".
    More rules.

    30 minutes late and you lose. That seems fair enough.

    Default Conditional Subsidy of Australian (national) & Australian Open Championships

    A recent resolution:
    “That the ACF underwrites future Australian Championships and Opens up to $2000, conditional on that amount being reduced by $1 for every dollar paid to organisers in excess of $500.”
    Matters mentioned as possible subjects for clarification include:
    - Whether the financial assistance should be offered as a guarantee against loss or a direct grant;
    - Whether or not the reduction against organisers’ fees is to take into account fees paid to arbiters and/or other staff;
    - How any resolution of the above might be applied if the organiser also serves as an arbiter and/or in some other capacity for which services might reasonably be paid.
    May be of interest to the some Club organisers as they canvassed opportunities recently

    FIDE LAWS OF CHESS

    FIDE Laws 1 July 2009
    The FIDE Laws of Chess have been revised, with the new version to
    be effective from 1 July 2009.
    Our FIDE Delegate, Phil Viner, may give advice concerning the significance of any
    changes other than those concerning forfeit time.
    We await with interest.

    Default 2018 Australian Chess Championships

    Australian Chess Federation Newsletter 30 September 2017 contains info on the 2018 Australian Chess Championships.
    One entry qualification requirement that caught my eye is

    <NSW residents must be members of the NSWCA. NSW Juniors under-18 must be NSWCA or NSW Junior Chess League Members. Other juniors must be members of the equivalent State or Territory organisation.>

    The Victorian State organisation that exists is Chess Victoria Incorporated.
    However, membership of CV Inc is rather selective, as governed by its Constitution
    ...
    3. Membership of the Association

    3 (1) Membership of the Association shall be limited to natural persons classified by the Association as:-

    (a) Delegates;

    (b) Members of the Executive; and

    (c) Honorary life members.

    ...



    Thus, it is hard to see how Victorian Juniors are to meet this entry qualification. Perhaps someone can assist with an interpretation lest all Victorian Juniors are excluded from the 2018 Australian Chess Championships

    Must have been designed by a true pedant. The late Edwin Malitis was brilliant at dealing with this type of penny pinching by the ACF. I will never forget the time he claimed 50 new digital clocks as a cost on the tournament! I would suggest a couple of new DGT boards might be a good investment if a successful tournament is showing to much profit!

    Not even an attempt to provide lip service towards Victorian chess.
