ACF COUNCIL MEETING

The ACF Council meeting will be held tonight (Monday).
Among the topics to be discussed are the 
Speck/Johansen Play-off from the 2001/2 Australian Championships, 
Australian Chess Directory, a proposal for a National Chess Coaching 
Accreditation System, and the ratings debate

- Joseph Tanti

DUBBO OPEN

This tournament, now in its third year, was won by the player who won it
 in the first two years: IM John-Paul Wallace. John-Paul won his first five games 
and agreed a quick draw with Kerry Stead in the final round to finish on 5.5/6. 
David Castor was second on 5/6 and Stead finished third with 4.5 points.  
19 players took part with entrants from Newcastle, Gosford, Gunnedah, Sydney, 
Canberra, Orange, and of course Dubbo itself. The players enjoyed a terrific dinner 
on the saturday night and a very enjoyable time was had by all. 
Thanks to the organisers from the Dubbo Chess Club http://users.tpg.com.au/trevbec1/ 
and hopefully more players will make the effort to attend the event next year. 

5.5 Wallace
5.0 Castor
4.5 Stead
4.0 Van Der Wal

AUSTRALIAN CLUBS TEAMS CHAMPIONSHIPS 

Caloundra, Sunshine Coast, 
29 September to 3 October 2003
Rydges Oasis Resort

We now have six confirmed teams for this inaugural event. They are St George
(Sydney), Universities of Sydney, Canberra, Gold Coast, Bullwinkle
(Brisbane) and Suncoast. I have particularly asked Box Hill and Adelaide to
make every endeavour to send a team. Six is great, eight would be terrific.
All other clubs are, of course, encouraged to send teams. Ten would be
awesome for the first year!

A.C.T. SCHOOLS COMPETITIONS 

The ACTJCL has finished the first set of competitions to select our 
representatives for the Australian Schools Championships in WA. 

The Girls Primary Schools Championships experienced more than 
50% growth this year, with nearly 300 girls participating across 2 zones.  
St Monicas's (Tamzin Oliver, Alexandra Humphrey, Marina Lovric 
and Lara Ong) were clear winners by  4˝ points on long time rivals, 
Curtin and Chapman Primaries who tied for =2nd. 

The Girls High Schools Championships also experienced growth, 
with 34 girls participating - up on 24 last year.  It is still very pathetic 
and if anyone can give me hints on how to keep girls participating 
at High School, I'll be glad to hear.  Alfred Deakin High (Veronique 
Eldridge-Smith) came 1st, followed by Radford College and Belconnen High.  

Curtin and Chapman now have the right to challenge St Monica's 
to a playoff  at long time controls, but on current indications they 
will not do so, leaving St Monica's as the ACT rep.  Girls High Schools 
is more of a problem - it is unfortunately the case that any school, 
who can find 4 girls who are prepared to travel to WA, will be the rep.

LETTERS POLICY

No letters this week, partly because the only correspondence received related
to the ratings debate, and I've declared a halt to that debate here for a while.
I did so for a couple of reasons: first, the letters tended to take up a huge amount 
of space, squeezing out other material; second, there seemed to be a bit of a 
personal edge developing in some letters, which is (a) absolutely inevitable in a long debate
where there are strong feelings on both sides, but (b) inappropriate for an august 
publication like this one, and (c) not conducive to good debate; third, the
ACF Bulletin Board already hosts a lively, detailed debate about these matters,
running to dozens of posts, where all the minutiae can be examined in one place - 
in my view, a much more appropriate forum for such debates. I've directed the writers 
of letters about the ratings dispute to post their thoughts there.

The Bulletin Board is at http://www.auschess.org.au/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl

As for the letters policy, here are some guidelines for letter writers:

1. Letters should be no longer than 100 words. Longer letters should be posted to the 
Bulletin Board, and a 100-word summary supplied for the Bulletin.

2. Letter writers are asked not to get personal, as far as possible. Stick to the issue.
Robust debate about *issues* is encouraged.

3. Letter writers are asked to make reasonable inquiries to ascertain the facts
before making contentious claims. This does not mean, of course, that only 
"experts" are entitled to speak their minds.

4. Letters may now be edited. My practice so far has been to simply publish them
verbatim, but this has led to some conflicts. Where possible (ie, where letters are received
early enough), letter writers will be asked to themselves remove any unhappy 
personal references etc. If this is not possible, I may edit letters, though I'll try not to
change any essential meanings.

5. Long and involved topics might be re-directed from the Bulletin to the Bulletin Board.
