2011 Tuggeranong Vikings Weekender

A last minute reminder for the 2011 Tuggeranong Vikings Weekender. If you are planning to play, you need to enter by tomorrow to be included in the draw for the first round (late entries will be paired after the start of round 1).
At this stage there are just over 50 entrants, which indicates a larger field than last years 55. Top seed is IM George Xie, with IM's Vladimir Smirnov and Andrew Brown also playing. One interesting entry is Greg Melrose, who was Australian Junior Champion in 1972, but who hasn't been on the tournament scene for a while.
The tournament is being held at the Tuggeranong Vikings Rugby Union Club, Ricardo St, Wanniassa, ACT. It is a 7 round event with a time limit of G60m+10s per move. First prize is $1000 and the total prize pool is expected to exceed $2700. Full details of the event, including an entry form are here.
