We are now taking registrations for the FIDE-rated Autumn Rapid and the Autumn Cup. The Autumn Rapid is a 6-round rapid tournament held on the 12th and 19th of April as a single grade. The Autumn Cup is a 7-round tournament held from the 3rd of May to the 21st of June. The A-grade is an 8-player round-robin and there are also B- and C-grade Swiss groups.
Since the entries for each tournament is limited to 80 players, we are putting in a new system to control entries.
Initially, each tournament will have 50 places for players over 1500 NZCF rating and 30 places for players under 1500 rating allocated. The first 50 higher-rated or the first 30 lower-rated entries will automatically get in.
One week before the tournament starts the rating restrictions will be removed and any remaining places allocated to entries with registration on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Entries can be done via a text/email/Facebook message to the club captain. The list of entries received so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IgO6PwwJ5sdIkdmKyixvolqNXdSa1bnk_i2sgABsRng/edit?usp=sharing
Remember, priority is given to 50 NZCF 1500+ rated players, and 30 players rated under 1500. One week before each tournament, the registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. People who notify the captain will be added to this list in order of messages. Thanks!
The one week deadlines for the rating groups will be:
- 9 pm on Monday, April 5th for the Autumn Rapid
- 9 pm on Monday, April 26th for the Autumn Cup
