2020 ACT Blitz Championship - Monday 20 January

The first ACT event of the 2020 chess year is the 2020 ACT Blitz Championship. This year it is being hosted by the Tuggeranong Chess Club, Ricardo St, Wanniassa. Registrations are from 6:45pm on Monday the 20th January, with play scheduled to start at 7pm. The tournament is a 9 round swiss, with an entry fee of $10 ($5 for juniors). As this is an official ACT Chess Association event, membership fees for 2020 will be required to be paid as well ($25 adult, $15 concession).
With ACT chess on a bit of an upswing at the moment, I expect a large field. Tuggeranong events always attract a sizeable number of local players, and this event usually attracts players from the other clubs.
