Supervision of Juniors:
Whilst Gardiner Chess voluntarily provides “play areas” for the use of younger chess players at various venues, these areas are not provided for purposes of “child care” and their use is subject to the oversight of the parents or guardians of these younger chess-players.
It is not the role of Arbiters to “police” areas outside of the playing venue – their role is to ensure that chess games are played in accordance with the rules and ensuring order in the playing venue. Supervision of children outside of the playing hall is solely the responsibility of the parent or caregiver, not the Arbiter or Organiser of the tournament.
Gardiner Chess staff will NOT accompany children to local food outlets. Please ensure your child has food with them, or is supervised by yourself/another adult should they need to get food.
Please ensure you have read the Event Policies and Procedures.
