2009 ACT Chess Championship

The 2009 ACT Chess Championship begins next Friday night (4th September). In a slightly unusual move the event is being played on a non-club night, although it is being played at the venue of a chess club. The venue is the Tuggeranong Vikings Rugby Union Club (home of the Tuggeranong Chess Club), Ricardo St, Wanniassa. It will be a 9 round swiss (1 round a week) and is open to all players. The time limit is G/90+30s with entry fees of $50 for adults, $40 for concessions.
Further details, including online entry facilities, are at this link.

What is the cost to join the ACTCA on the night. So ACTCA + Entry fee = ?

Currently $15 for ACTCA membership (although it is going up next year to $25). So for the moment it is cheaper to join the ACTCA than pay the non-members fee, which has cunningly been set at $20.
