    I would love to see this event go ahead however haven't heard any information other than it being on hold due to venue availability and the school not willing to host

    Hope this changes

    I've also heard that the event is going ahead, which would be great news. But there are a lot of details missing from the websites, such as entry fees. More importantly, there's no mention of any coronavirus restrictions.

    This is fantastic news, I am thrilled that there will be a weekender run by Redcliffe Chess Club

    I hope they are able to manage the COVID restrictions appropriately

    Also Gardiner Chess will be running The Nell Van De Graaff Classic the weekend before, Queenslander's could be in for a busy chess season with multiple weekenders!
