Returning to online chess

 The ACT Government has extended the Covid lockdown for another 2 weeks, so there will be no face to face chess before the 3rd of September. The ACT Chess Association has decided to organise some online events in the meantime, to keep everyone happy and (chess) active. 

The events will be held on the lichess server and will probably operate in a similar way to last year. To sign up you need a Lichess account (always free) and then apply to join the When you apply to join, please supply your real name, and which local chess club or activity you are connected to.

The first event (a 5 round rapid) starts tomorrow (17 August), and depending on the level of interest, other events (using different formats) will be organised later.
