Rook mates!

The ACT Junior Chess League is holding its end of year Transfer (Bughouse) tournament this coming weekend. This is the traditional ending to the junior chess year in Canberra, and is always an extremely popular event. Last year there were 32 teams taking part, with the Setiabudi's (Allen and Megan) taking out first place.
The event is being held on Sunday 27th November at Campbell High School, Trealor Crescent, Campbell (next to the War Memorial). Registrations close at 12:45 pm with the tournament running from 1pm, with prize giving at 5pm. Entry is $20 per team, and is open to players of ALL ages (yes even adults can play). The rules for the tournament are described here. The main thing to note is that it usually played without 'drop for mate', but this rule has sometimes been overturned due to popular demand.
