    Good to see Northern Star Chess re-starting their Sunday Cup Activities.
    Haven't played there for quite some time.
    St Bridget's Primary is a fantastic venue situated in beautiful green surroundings equipped with ultra modern electronic display giant screens and all amenities.
    Keep those dates on your diary and visit the place, you will enjoy perfect chess Sundays either with your families or as individuals.
    The above schedule suits me fine since I have 4-5 Sundays of those listed available.
    I hope the popular sizzle will be operating!

    Hi ER,

    Thanks Elliott, but you must be thinking back to when NSC held events at Billanook College in the outer east. It's been some years since NSC has had an event there.
    St Bridget's, in Balwyn North, doesn't quite have the same level of gardens and facilities, but the hall there makes a bright, cosy space for families to play chess and enjoy each other's company. Sorry, no sausage sizzle. Hope you can still come, but please note the location!

    Notice regarding ACF Rating of future St Bridget's Cup events.

    Event 1 will be ACF Quick Rated. However, the rules on ACF rating submission change on the 1st June, 2021. Unfortunately, under the new rules, NSC will not be able to submit future tournaments for ACF rating.

    St Bridget's Cup - 27th June tournament cancelled

    The uncertainty caused by the recent lockdown and current restrictions have made organisation and promotion of this event difficult. So, we've reluctantly decided to cancel the tournament on the 27th June. Apologies to our regular participants.

    Our next St Bridget's Cup tournament is scheduled for Sunday 1st August.

    Thank you for the enquiry.

    At present, NSC is focussed on its school and junior programs. In particular, ensuring an uninterrupted program for its Junior Chess Club on Sundays, and will not be able to hold another St Bridget's Cup tournament this year. At the end of each year, programs and venue partnerships are reviewed, so we'll have to wait and see what happens in 2022.
