Going the hack in Newcastle

If you are feeling adventurous, and want to play in a one day event, and you are in the Sydney/Central Coast/Newcastle region of New South Wales, then you might want to drop in and play the Kings Gambit Tournament on the 14th of September (this Sunday). As the name suggests it is a thematic event, with all games starting 1.e4 e5 2.f4  It is a rapidplay event (G/20m) so I suspect there will be plenty of thud and blunder taking place, which is expected for what is only a semi-serious event. However there will be prize money on offer as well, meaning it wont be entirely fun and games.
It is a 7 round event, with registrations from 9:30am and a finish time of 5pm. The venue is the Gallipoli legion Club in Hamilton, and further details can be found here.
If you are thinking of player, here is a game that might inspire (or terrify) you.
