    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.

    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.

    Seeing the huge interest that the Leo Wilkinson has rightly generated; I have spoken with our venue coordinator and the number of places we can COVID safely accommodate has been revised upwards to 60. So if you are worried about missing out - don't.

    Living on the road since June 2015, could be anywhere, currently (if I have remembered to update) at Hervey Bay in Queensland.

    During the recent Queensland Seniors Championships, we attempted to gather games from the players immediately after the tournament with some success (nothing was done or announced during the tournament). We are going to try and do a similar thing at the 2021 Bundaberg Open - only this time we will try and gather games during the tournament - mobile ohones make it so much easier! 66% of the games were received after the Qld Seniors. Hopefully we can top this at the Bundaberg Open.

    Good luck to Paul on his project. We will offer every assistance that we can here in Bundaberg.
    On the entrants front we are happy to announce that GM Daniel Fernandez will be playing. He is also coming to town to do a Masterclass as a prelude to the Open for our schoolchildren.
