    Please note a change to the Round times for the South Island RAPID Championships on Sunday 9 October.

    This is to accommodate those leaving on the last flight to Auckland that evening which departs at 6:15pm. The airport is only a 5 minute drive away and is pretty small so there should be no issues getting there in good time.

    I will amend the entry form shortly and contact those who have already entered.

    New Times:

    Entries Close 9:15am
    Players Meeting 9:30am
    Round 1 9:45am
    Round 2 11:00am
    Round 3 12:15pm
    Round 4 1:45pm
    Round 5 3:00pm
    Round 6 4:15pm

    Still setting up VEGA files etc.

    Interest remains pretty high, a number of overseas players looking to combine the Asian Seniors Championships (later in October in Auckland) with a trip down South - waiting on visas. If you are keen to play, get your entry in sooner rather than later, if we get a decent field we will adjust the minimum prize fund upwards as soon as entries allow (hopefully soon!)

    Entries for the Championship Event to date - typically slow for events like this:

    Ben Hague
    Richie Christie
    Atlas Kerr
    Phil Coleman
    Michal Tokarz
    Daniel Bell
    Liam Alcock
    Lev Gimelfarb
