Club Champs/FIDE

Posted: 26/02/2018 by Ian in Club News

At the last AGM we agreed to look into FIDE rating for the club champs. Hilton has investigated this, and for several reasons it is not feasible. 1. All players would need to be NZCF registered involving additional costs to members. 2. A non playing certified National Arbiter would be needed, locking Hilton out of the tournament. 3. We would need to allow for a longer time control, with games potentially running to 3 hours.

  1. Lillian Dare says:

    Can’t we just have a Hamilton Rapid OPEN, which would give the locals (and non-locals!) a chance to get a FIDE rating?
