The Tony Sturges Memorial will be run again on Anzac Day in Hobart. I'm thinking of extending this into a weekend event with 2 parts (depending on interest).

The Saturday portion will be the thematic tournament in memory of Tony, while Sunday will host a standard rapid tournament. If this idea gains some momentum we may cement the ANZAC day weekend as a regular Hobart weekender in coming years .

Hi Kev, I am going to be visiting Tassie at the time of the Tasmanian Championships. (March 7, 8, 9) Is that event open to all or restricted to Tasmanians only? Thanks in advance!

Hi Elliot, No the event is not restricted at all, but should you win you're not eligible for the title of Tasmanian Champion :)

We'd love to have you!

Confirmed! Flights and hotel booked. See you there! :)
PS. I presume it's at the school! Well, school or HICC makes no difference to me! :)

Yes we presume likewise but have to wait until school goes back to confirm that we can book for then. I'll try to get an entry form out in the next week. Great to have you here again.

Oh another event this year is the TCA AGM which is scheduled for March 9 after the last round of the Tas Champs ... and this is the AGM at which I stand down as TCA Secretary after 19 years! I just have too many chess admin roles to do them all justice and it is time for someone else to take over.
