    Bundaberg Open/Queensland Open 2018

    Great news, Bundaberg is hosting the Queensland Open this year. It will be later than usual on the weekend of the 8th/9th September and we realise that this is in school time. So we are making it bigger than ever. It will be a Category 3 with a guaranteed first prize of $1000. More to follow

    Bundaberg Chess Club is pleased to announce that GM Moulthun Ly has agreed to come to Bundaberg for the Open. It is the first time we have had a GM at our weekender. He has also agreed to give a Masterclass and a simul for local chess players. This will be on Friday 7th September. We will finalise the venue and post it here on Chesschat; so put that in your diary and think about an extra day in our wonderful city.

    Would potential entrants be so kind as to email the club (bundabergchessclub18@ozemail.com.au) to let us know you have paid if you pay direct. And to all those other GM's, IM's and WIM's out there we would like to know of your interest in attending.

    Greetings from Dnipro. I understand that there has been another typo. I should sack me as publicist. The contact address on the flyer should read 3 Seymour Drive not Seymour Avenue. I hope this has not inconvenienced anybody.
