Default British championship agreement

The BCF have published the right of entry rules reached
in agreement with several chess bodies from the British
Isles. It is on

http://www.bcf.org.uk/organisation/m..._reports/bicc_
jul03.htm


There has been a degree of controversy over the
participation of non-British players.


Regards,

Simon.

I have read the entry rules but it is unclear whether
anything has changed. Could somebody please clarify this.

Regards

In article ,

From article two :

"only players who fulfil one of the following
qualifications shall have the right of entry"

Note the only, continuing:

"(a) British Citizenship, or
(b) British Overseas Territories Citizenship, or
(c) Citizenship of Ireland, or
(d) not less than three years continuous ordinary
residence in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland ending on the 30th June in the calendar
year of the Championship in question, or
(e) not less than three years continuous ordinary
residence in Ireland ending on the 30th June in the
calendar year of the Championship in question, or
(f) not less than three years continuous ordinary
residence in the Channel Islands ending on the 30th June
in the calendar year of the Championship in question, or
(g) not less than three years continuous ordinary
residence in the Isle of Man ending on the 30th June in
the calendar year of the Championship in question"


This appears to no longer include players from the
Commonwealth unless I am missing something. Thus unless I
am misreading the thing, there will be no more Sultan
Khans or Anands, which is a shame. The real problem, a
lack of decent sponsorship, is not addressed, not that
this sort of agreement is really suited to tackling that
issue.

On a separate note players from the relics of our
existing empire, such as it is, can enter. Thus can we
expect wads of players from Bermuda, or Christians from
Pitcairn? :-) what a bounty!

Regards,

Simon.

You make a funny. What about players from Iraq?

Dear Simon,

The sun has set on Pax Britannia.
And overseas players need not go 'back to dear old Blighty'.

Are players in Hong Kong not eligible to enter the championship of China?
On a more provocative note, are players in the Malvinas (Falklands) Islands
eligible to enter the championship of Argentina? :-)

'Tiddley iddley ighty,
Hurry me home to Blighty,
Blighty is the place for me!'

--from 'Take Me Back to Dear Old Blighty' (1916)
