Juniors information and ratings re Koshnitsky Cup

Please find a summary of the announcement which will affect junior competitions organised under Hobson Bay Chess Club banner.  

Australian Chess Federation (ACF) has advised that our upcoming and past junior tournaments shall not  be registered for ACF rating due to a lack of rated juniors (to circulate the ratings around).

  • As a result of our discussion, HBCC has decided to rate junior competitions via Tornelo instead
  • The $5 ACF rating fees for the past tournaments (Hobson Bay Juniors and Western Juniors) will be refunded to the players. Please see Steve Hogan for your refund.  
  • HBCC will be exploring alternative plans to get juniors rated in ACF
  • For recently concluded Hobson Bay Cup Juniors 2022 tournament, please register your child in Tornelo so we can get your child rated:(https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/hobsonbaychessclub/events/koshnitsky-juniors-cup-2022/summary). See the attached guide on how to register for the event.
  • Please ensure that you complete your child’s registration latest by Monday 15/08/2022.

As part of club’s tradition, Matthew Whitford has volunteered to provide free ½ hour coaching session prior to the kickoff of each round (from 6:00 PM- 6:30 PM)

No need to register for this free coaching session, just show up earlier with your notebook and writing materials.
