2014 ANU Chess Festival - Canberra Club Challenge

The first event of the 2014 ANU Chess Festival, the Canberra Club Challenge, is on this Friday (25 July) at King O'Malley's in Canberra City. The event is 'teams-of-two' five round blitz event. Last year was a round robin, with teams from each of the clubs in the ACT, but this year it is open to more teams. However a few of the clubs have already put together some strong teams, with the ANU Scholars looking to defend their title.
The competition kicks off at 5pm on the 25th July at King O'Malley's, City Walk, Canberra City. There is still space for a few more teams, and there is no cost to enter, the top 2 teams will win prizes from the even sponsor, the ANU Co-Op Book Shop. Spectators are more than welcome to come along and cheer for their favourite team.
You can also still enter the ANU Open which starts on Saturday 26th July. Online entries can be made here, while you can pay at the venue on the Saturday morning.
