We have our first official entrant - Brodie. Like him you can book at the Spanish Motor Inn. Mention to chess as they have supported us well in past years.

I am in quarantine until (likely August 27) so I am no longer allowed to participate.

I am in quarantine until (likely August 27) so I am no longer allowed to participate.You're in quarantine for eighteen days from today - are you sure!? Standard covid quarantine only lasts fourteen days.

Sorry to all those who wanted to attend but even with the lifting of the lockdown the is still a recommendation for those coming out of lockdown to avoid travelling to regional Queensland for non essential reasons. I, personally, feel that chess is essential still I doubt that the Premier and CHO see it that way. So we are rescheduling the Open for 27/28 November to replace the Bundaberg Classic. For those who have paid entry fees but are unable to be available for those dates a refund will be arranged.

Thanks to our moderator for clarifying the situation. My sympathies to Mackay. See you November 27th and 28th, barring Anastasia's further intervention.
