    IM James Morris has entered

    International Master and Club Grand Champion James Morris has wasted no time in entering!

    Regardless of the final field, James must one of the favourites to claim part of the $6000+ in prizes, including the $2000 first prize.

    With a cap on the field, follow James' lead and enter early to avoid disappointment.

    A Shout-out to ACF Grand Prix Contenders

    Just a reminder to anyone in contention for a prize in the 2016 ACF Grand Prix - The Greg Hjorth Open is an ACF Grand Prix Class 5 event.

    This is the last Class 5 event in the 2016 schedule so this may be one of the last chances for any contenders to make their move.

    Reminder - Early Bird ends Wednesday 26 Oct

    Just a reminder that the early bird ends next week on Wednesday 26 October.

    It may only be $5, but a $5 coffee could be the difference between winning and losing in a morning round...
