The CCLA Council propose running both a Postal and Webserver Seniors Championship for 2017. Players can enter both, or choose a single format. In the case of insufficient numbers for either format, players will be given the option to play in whichever is the most popular.

Additional webserver and postal tournaments will be conducted if the number of entries so warrants.

Members may enter as many events as they wish and will be accommodated by the Starting Committee as far as possible.

All entries will be allocated on the basis of players’ ratings published in the November 2016 Australian Correspondence Chess Quarterly for postal tournaments, or ICCF ratings as at commencement date for webserver events
