URGENT NOTICE TO ALL SA PROVINCES AND REGIONS

As per the Chess SA National Council Resolution in July 2015, all adults and juniors are required to pay individual annual Chess SA membership fees through their respective Regions and/or Provinces. The annual membership fees are: Adults = R200-00 and Juniors = R100-00.

We have encountered that the majority of Chess SA members have been very slack in fulfilling their financial obligation to Chess SA. As such, the Chess SA Executive Board have decided that no further tournaments will be rated for Regions and/or Provinces who have not collected and paid over to Chess SA their members' Chess SA membership fees.


Sedibeng Management would like to congratulate the following players who qualified for the SA Chess Junior Closed Championship for 2017:

  • Under 10 Girls – Mignon Goosen
  • Under 16 Girls – Nina Marais
  • Under 18 Boys – David Smith
  • Under 20 Boys – Cavan Jacobs
  • Under 20 Boys – Almaro de Villiers
  • Under 20 Boys – Itumeleng Kheswa
  • Under 20 Girls – Carlia Venter

SAJCC Accommodation: Quick update on the billings - we have allowed parents to book their accommodation directly this year, and I have started sending out estimates to those parents. Please note that we will only issue INVOICES once we have received full payment, so until then estimates will be the relevant document. I will also copy the representative of the region, as these estimates/invoices will be on the regions account. This will also help to limit double bookings. Parents are welcome to pay us directly FOR ACCOMMODATION only (registration fees, etc. will be charged to the regions in bulk), however, it is important to use the correct referencing (Region/Estimate nr; for example GTP/ES12). This will enable me to allocate payments to a SPECIFIC estimate/invoice.
We will allow changes to bookings as well as cancellations on accommodation up to 31 October 2016. Thereafter, rooms/bookings can be exchanged but cancellations of a room will no longer be accepted.


PLEASE NOTE! The Drie Riviere Open will replace the Driehoek Open 2016 Chess tournament. Registration form available.
