Some regular readers of this blog may have noticed some changes in the tabs at the top of the blog, with two new tabs appearing - Victorian Chess Festival & Chess Festival Plan.
This is a rather bold plan I have tried to put together, at least at an idea stage, for a Chess Festival in Victoria, which might hopefully be able to go ahead in late 2016 & early 2017.
Ideally, I'd like to see such a chess festival approach the quality of an event like Wijk Aan Zee, London or Gibraltar, although obviously that is a standard to work towards rather than something that can obviously be matched or bettered on its first attempt.
I'm hoping that the idea will generate plenty of comment in the chess community - but please leave feedback about the idea - on this page, or the idea or plan pages themselves.
Of course the best for of feedback is constructive criticism ... what you think works, what you think doesn't work, but most importantly how you would improve the ideas already put forward.
