We need to know if you want to play in this event. It is a Fixed Roster Lichess event.
Similar format to the Online Olympiad with a faster time control.
I want both sides to publish their Teams by about mid-March so we can generate more interest.
15 minutes per side with 10 sec. increment.
4 Juniors 1x U/18, 1x U/16, 1x U/14, 1x U/12
Two of the 10 players have to be female.
This is not a mickey mouse event where someone phones around a couple or hours before trying to scare up a team.
If this goes well, we will be playing teams from all over Australia and others in our time zone.
Kids, get this on your resume – playing for the all conquering RCC at the age of 10 or whatever.
YOU NEED A LICHESS ACCOUNT – IT IS FREE!!
TRIAL PLAYING AGAINST A FRIEND. THAT IS HOW WE WILL CONTACT OUR OPPOSITE BOARD.
RCC PLAYERS – EMAIL ME AND TELL ME YOU WANT TO PLAY
WE NEED TWO FEMALE PLAYERS – PUT YOUR HAND UP AND YOU ARE IN THE TEAM
WE NEED FOUR JUNIORS – SHOW SOME INITIATIVE – PUT YOUR HAND UP
