I would like to take mild issue with Roger's sentence about Ireland that I have emboldened.
Tim, Roger's endless whine is about anybody having to pay for anything in chess. Once you have grasped that, then you will be able to evaluate anything he writes or says in a sensible fashion.

Re: FIDE Arbiter Sought

The list of FIDE licensed arbiters may be found at http://arbiters.fide.com/images/stories/downloads/2013/List_of_Licensed_Arbiters.pdf. Anyone on that list is acceptable to FIDE as an arbiter for a FIDE rated event. National Federations may impose additional criteria within their jurisdiction if t...

Re: Can someone put me in touch with Ian Leko

Out of curiosity, how long do most tournaments leave prizes unclaimed before declaring them expired?

(Don't worry, Ian, if you are out there. Richmond Juniors won't drop this one before the end of the year, at least.)

Re: Can someone put me in touch with Ian Leko

Sadly, the mobile number that was passed on to me by another arbiter is no longer in use. Can anyone help?

Re: FIDE Arbiter Sought

The information is in the FIDE Handbook. The two relevant regulations are: (i) All arbiters of a FIDE rated tournament shall be licensed otherwise the tournament shall not be rated. (Ref 1, para 0.3). (ii) The Chief Arbiter of a title tournament shall be an International Arbiter (IA) or FIDE Arbite...

Re: Can someone put me in touch with Ian Leko

The cheque is out of date and why not put it back into your congress pot. The debt is one which we would like to honour if at all possible. We like to pay out our prizes, even at some inconvenience, otherwise our statement of "guaranteed prizes" would be rendered meaningless. Ultimately it might en...

Can someone put me in touch with Ian Leko

Hi,

Richmond Juniors have a cheque for £35 for a grading prize for Ian Leko dated from 9 October 2016.

We would dearly love to pay him what he is owed, but we seem to have lost communication.

Ian, if you are out there, please get in touch.

Best wishes
Paul McKeown

Re: FIDE Arbiter Sought

For any FIDE rated tournament, all the arbiters must be FIDE licensed. For a Title Tournament an International Arbiter or a FIDE Arbiter must be present at all times. This does not apply if the tournament is merely FIDE rated. David, thank you for this. Is there anywhere where I can find these rule...

Re: FIDE Arbiter Sought

As far as I can see, you don't need a FIDE Arbiter, only a FIDE licensed arbiter. However, Jack Rudd or Stewart Reuben would be able to help with your training requirement. Regarding the date, did you mean Saturday 1st December? Hi David, Thank you for your help. Could you clarify when a FIDE Licen...
