2021 ACT Winter Open - 23-25 July 2021

 The ACT Chess Association is holding the ACT Winter Open on the 23rd (Friday), 24th and 25th of July this year. This event is in place of the ANU Open, which is unable to be held at the ANU this year. Instead it will be held at Campbell High School, which is where the ACT Junior Chess League run their events.

With the Covid situation still be in flux (especially in Sydney), the event is being restricted to 64 players (across the Open and Minor tournaments), and obviously will only be open to players who are allowed to enter the ACT. If this changes (eg restrictions are eased or lifted) the numbers for this event may be increased. The full details are
