Complaints About Doeberl Cup

Over the last 48 hours I heard the following complaints about the upcoming Doeberl Cup.

1. Internet only info. Why no leaflets? Even the legendary Lloyd Fell, who hasn't missed a single Cup for nearly half a century, was reportedly upset by lack of direct mail material. Well, we can't have a Cup without Mr Fell. Thankfully, he's in the major.
2. Too many low rated players in the premier section. In fact, the rating cutoff for the top section is only 1800. Too low?
3. (Actually, this one's a question). Will all participants have to pay up and join an association if they're not already members?

All that aside, I can't wait for next week. See you there.

This tournament has certainly moved with the times.

The past is a foreign country.

Amiel, are you now the spokesman for the grumpy old men?

Someone involved with chess should call up radio station ABC 702 on the AM dial this afternoon friday 14th March as they are going to have an "open type forum" for people to make comments on things. It's time someone PROMOTED CHESS. Have a nice day :)
