There are players that qualify from 19 clubs and such players represent six provinces.

 

Since the Gauteng Province has the most qualifiers (38), the Trials shall therefore be held in the Gauteng Province 6 and 7 February 2010. The MSSA is just waiting from the relevant clubs to assign the trials.

 

It may interest players to note that there are four World Champions who qualify to participate in the trials, being:

Anyone who qualifies for the Trials may play. All players will be given an one week 'cooling-off' period after the trials in which time such players must indicate whether they wish to be eligible for selection.

For any other queries, please contact Sylvia Webster at 012 6732359 or swebster@za.go2uti.com

NOTES:

Please note that all players who enter trials must have the following:

a.      The standard form together with the entry fee of R165.00 for senior players, and R110.00 for junior players, the duly completed questionnaire and your army list is submitted by 25 January 2010. Please note that should you be selected to represent South Africa, it will be the army list, as submitted by you that shall be entered into all international championships.

b.      For figure gamers: your army is fully original and has all 40 standard points. Should not all the figures belong to you, you must submit a certified letter from the owner of the figures in question that you have permission to use such figures when representing South Africa both here and abroad.

c.       The army list that you shall use at both at the Trials and if selected, at the World Individual Wargames Championships.

d.      You have submitted a photocopy of the front four pages of your South African passport, and a photocopy of the front two pages of your South African identity document. Should any of these documents be outstanding at the date of trials, you will automatically be disqualified from being selected.

e.      You are a South African citizen.

f.        You are currently registered to the INTERNATIONAL WARGAMES FEDERATION.

g.      You have submitted your essay on how and why you organise army command structure the way you do, the terrain that you prefer for your army, how you try to get the terrain that you want, how you protect your army's flanks, and at least three technical tips. (This only applies to figure gamers).

h.      A receipt confirming that you have deposited your entry fee into the MSSA's bank account with ABSA. The account number is: 90 4766 7676.

i.        Team members will be expected to travel together as a team.

j.        Please note that should you be selected for the team, you shall be barred from participation in any sporting event, other than a MSSA event, between the date of selection and the date of the event for which you have been chosen.

This includes occasional games of touch rugby etc. This rule was introduced in 1993 as a response to one of our players injuring himself, which not only affected his own games, but also adversely affected the result of the team as a whole.

k. Players that enter must be aware of their obligations in terms of participating in local events as well as in terms of umpiring as failure to do so may result in such player not being selected in the following year.

Should you be selected, you should note that the MSSA cannot guarantee that it will be able to assist players financially.
