The Vikings Weekender is the third big weekend tournament in Canberra held each year. Over the last few years it has increased in popularity, with the fields getting into the 70's. As a result the prize fund has also increased, with a $1000 first prize. There is also an Under 1600 events with a $500 first prize, giving up and coming (or slightly past their prime) players a chance to pick up some coin as well.
This years tournament is on the weekend of the 16th&17th of November, and will be held at the usual venue of the Vikings Rugby Union Club, Ricardo St, Wanniassa. It will be a 7 round event (always tough), with a time limit of G60m+10s.
Entry fees are $65 ($45 junior/concession) ad can be made in advance, or on the day. Nick Beare has set up a website for the tournament, so you find out more details (including round times), or simply enter online at
