I’m not in the Gardiner Chess Club, what should I do?

If you are NOT a member of the Gardiner Chess Club, you can join a group that has been set up to aid this process. Go to the settings icon at the top of page (the cog). On the account tab, there should be an option to add a registration key at the bottom. The code is QTCEE8. Email Andrew on chesskid@gardinerchess.com.au that you have joined the ‘Tournament Add’ group so he can then add you into the Gardiner Chess Club
