2023 ACT Chess Championship 26-29th May

 The 2023 ACT Chess Championship is being held across the long weekend of the 26th - 29th May. This year sees a new venue, at the Eastlake Football Club in Griffith (NB NOT where the Gungahlin Chess Club meets ). I had a look at the venue today and it has plenty of space, as well as club facilities for meals and refreshments. It is a definite improvement over Campbell High School Hall (no offence Campbell High!), making this years event a must play for local players.

Although this is a championship event, interstate players are welcome to take part, and are eligible for all prizes. However the title of ACT Champion for 2023 is awarded to the best scoring local player.
