The ACT Junior Chess League is holding the ACT Women's and Girl's Championship this weekend (23rd and 24th August). This event has been run successfully for a number of years, and often draws a larger field than comparable event in the bigger Australian states.
It is being held at the Campbell High, Treloar Crescent, Campbell (the ACTJCL HQ), from 10am Saturday. It is played over 2 days with a time limit of G60m+10s. There will be 6 or 7 rounds (depending upon numbers), and players can request half point byes if they need to fit it in with other activities. It is open to female players of all ages (not just juniors), and each year sees a few veterans take on the younger brigade.
You can register before 9:45am on Saturday. For further information, visit the ACT Junior Chess League web page.
