ACF Bulletin No.118 - 27 May 2001
Sponsor for DGT sets and clocks, World Chess Qualifying Championship incorporating 3rd Asian Individual Chess Championship, North Sydney Leagues Club V St George Leagues Club for the Andre Hariman Trophy, "Daewenhao Cup" Juvenile Chess Summer Camp,  Invitational Tournament Beijing China 2001, 2001 Grand Prix, Bing Barredo alias Bing Ressurecion.

I'm pleased to advise that QUT (Queensland University of Technology) will be sponsoring the purchase of 10 DGT Sets/Timers valued at $8,000 by the ACF.
This sponsorship has been arranged through an active Brisbane chess player, Dr Vinod Chandran, Senior Lecturer at the School of Electrical and Electronic Systems Engineering, QUT. Vinod is the Qld branch President of the Australian Pattern Recognition Society. The sponsorship has been approved by the Vice Chancellor and will be paid shortly. QUT will be looking at this as an opportunity to promote their courses to high-school students who observe the games.
The sets/clocks are being purchased at trade prices from the Australian distributor, Brian Jones.
The ACF has agreed to the following terms in return:
The QUT banner will be displayed on each board when it appears on the screen.
Each physical board can have a small QUT banner/message attached.
The ACF webpage will have the QUT banner displayed prominently for a period of two years.
The ACF feels that it would be in the best interests of all involved if these 10 DGT Sets/Timers were to be distributed around the states and kept by keen, reliable, technically experienced people. These sets would be used for transmitting important local games live to the ACF webpage/Australasian Chess Online. It would be a good way for bringing all those involved in Australian chess a little closer together.
Occasionally, the 10 boards would be brought together for major events such as the Australian Championships etc. Under these circumstances care will need to be taken in packaging and despatch.

Have you ever heard of a Bing Barredo alias Bing Ressurecion? If so, do you know his whereabouts?
I've had an enquiry from the Brisbane branch of the Australian Competition and Consumer Bureau. Apparently he is not in any trouble but he was helping them with some enquiries and they've lost contact with him. Please contact Trudie Enks if you can help at Brisbane Office, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (07) 3835 4666.

All the very best
