View Full Version : Mingara Rapid and a Lightning - Feb 20 2010

Yes Folks the Mingara Rapid Event and the City of Sydney Event are both on the same weekend (both rapids)

they are in different places (completely separate events) but the really keen might like to play in both ?

Mingara's nearest train station is Tuggerah (& catch a bus from there but a friend with a car is usually more manageable easier [last year 47 rolled up])
the COS Rapid is at Burwood - the nearest train is at, well, Burwood

and so you could have a full weekend of fast chess, if you want.
