Hobsons Bay Cup – penultimate round

Please see attached the results for Tuesday and next week’s pairings. Dean and Tony are neck and neck. And a word from our President:

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the several players who advised me in advance they were unwell and unable to make chess. This is greatly appreciated and allowed the evening to run smoothly. I wish those players who are unwell a speedy recovery. I will be on holiday this week. Casey and Tony have kindly agreed to run the club on Tuesday.

Junior chess to return to Hobsons Bay Chess

We are excited and pleased to announce that we will be running junior chess at our venue on Tuesday nights, starting on the 17 May from 630pm (finishing by 830pm). These events will be vital to cultivate long-term chess interest through the club, and to fill a need for the local junior chess players. Many thanks to Casey Goh for running with this idea and making it a reality!

Full details are still being worked through, but there will be a junior membership fee (proposed to be $50) per annum, as well as a $10 tournament fee (for each tournament entered). This is to cover costs, prizes, etc. These junior events will also be ACF rated.

There is a participation form to be completed by a guardian/parent, that will appear on the web site soon, but it is also attached to this post. Please print it and sign before we start.

COVID rules relaxed for next week

As from midnight this Friday 22nd April, the rules around COVID are being relaxed. Vaccination status will no longer need to be shown to enter indoor venues, like our chess club.

Therefore, showing evidence of vaccine status will no longer be a requirement for entering the club from this coming Tuesday (26th April). The club will be open to all, regardless of vaccination status, just in time for the start of the Hobsons Bay Cup (7 rounds, 7 weeks).

Lightning Results

Attached are the results for Lightning on tuesday, well done to Matt for taking out the evening.

The next FIDE rated event will start on the 26 April, our 7 round Hobsons Bay Cup.
