2017 NSW Open

The Queens Birthday long weekend (in most of Australia), sees a number of chess weekenders in various states. The NSW Open and the Victorian Open are the two big ones, but I think most states hold some sort of event (with the exception of the ACT).
I'm heading off to the NSW Open (as a paid arbiter) with this year seeing another new venue. It is being held at The Russian Club in Strathfield NSW, and runs from the 10th to the 12th of June. It will be run in two sections (Open and Under 1600), with both tournaments having a very generous prize pool. There will be 7 rounds (2,3,2 format), with a time limit of G/90m+30s.
Further information, plus a link to online entry, can be found here.
