2015 Vikings Weekender - 1 week to go

Only a week before the 2015 Vikings Weekender begins. It is already shaping up as a strong event (in the Open), and a competitive one (in the Under 1600). The $1000 1st prize in the Open (sponsored by the Vikings Club) is certainly attractive, and apart from IM Junta Ikeda (current top seed), it is expected a few other titled players will be taking part. Thanks to generous sponsorship from O2C the Under 1600 is also offering $500 for first, which is a tidy some for a weekends chess.

The tournament runs over the weekend of the 14 and 15th November at the Vikings Rugby Union Club, Ricardo St, Wanniassa. It will be a 7 round swiss with a time limit of G60m+10s (for both sections). Entry fee is $65 ($45 for juniors & concessions).

You can register for the event (no payment reqd) at If you do not know your ACF ID (or even rating), just put something in, as all the ratings and ID's will be checked prior to the start of the event.
