2013 ANU Chess Festival - Canberra Club Challenge

For this years ANU Chess Festival we are trying something a little different to kick of the festivities. In previous years the Friday before the Open has featured a simul, but this year we are holding a teams blitz event. It is for teams of 2 players, with each team representing a chess club or activity in Canberra. Borrowing a little from televised darts, the event will be held in the Blarney Room at King O'Malley's in Canberra City. Unlike normal chess events, spectators will be encouraged to involve themselves in the action, with barracking actively encouraged. The 6 teams taking part are the ANU Scholars, Belconnen Bad Boys, Canberra Crushers, O'Malley Kings, Street Chess Brawlers and the Tuggeranong Tigers. It will be a Round robin event, and will run from 5pm to 6pm this Friday, 26 July.
If you are in the area feel free to drop by and join in the festivities.
