The deadline for early entry for the 2007 O2C Doeberl Cup is today (30th March 2007). If you intend to enter, and wish to save some money get your entry form into the post today, as entries with todays postmark are still ok.
As of yesterday evening there were 109 entries, including 8 GM's, which is clearly a record for GM entries in any weekend event in Australian chess history. Hopefully total entries will also exceed last years record field of 220 players.
As a warm up for the Doeberl Cup, GM Sergei Shipov will be giving a lecture and simul this Sunday (1st April 2007) at Campbell High School, Treloar Cres, Campbell, ACT. The lecture starts at 12 noon, with the simul to start afterwards. The cost is $10 for the lecture and $15 for lecture and simul.
