The annual Michelago Mayfair is being held on Sunday 1st May 2016, from 10am to 3pm. Michelago is a small village south of Canberra, about 25 minutes drive from Tuggeranong.
Every year they hold a chess display there, which normally involves myself (or Lee Forace) playing anyone who fancies a gamer. However for this year I am thinking of running a small tournament instead, to make the display a little more interesting.
'Street Chess on the Road' is the idea, in a slightly abbreviated format. A 5 round swiss (or RR depending on numbers) played with 10 minutes per player per game should last no more than 2 hours, so starting at 10:30am gives everyone a chance to see the rest of the fair. I'll try and pin down all the details in the next week (and gauge the level of interest), and hopefully have something more concrete soon.
