    University Open National 2004

    Howdy all,

    The Organisers of the 2003-4 Australian Chess Championships would like to invite you to the 2004 University Open on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of July 2004. This will be held at the same venue as the Championships-The Union Building, Adelaide University.

    10th & 11th of July
    Category 3 Grand Prix
    $4000 Total: $1000 First
    $2000 Divisonal
    Entry: $40, $30 (conc.)
    For queries, contact
    Full details and print out entry form on

    Free transfer tournament and full buffet dinner included.

    The Open has rapidly gained the reputation as one of the top 10 national chess weekenders in Australia with increasing local and interstate entrants and high praise from participating Australian top players, including GM Ian Rogers, GM Darryl Johansen, IM Stephen Solomon and IM Mark Chapman. We have already been humbled by the return of Grandmaster Ian Rogers in 2004 who is keen to once again reclaim 1st prize as he did in 2002. Many other interstate entrants have contacted us already to say they want to make the journey down to Adelaide in July (many of which have entered before).

    In its fourth year, we feel this remains the best value tournament in Australia with $4000 in prizes (and 23 individual prizes) available. Further, by arranging a free all-you-can-eat buffet dinner and many other social activities (such as a free transfer tournament), the 2004 University Open is no longer considered just a tournament but an event. An event which is open to everyone, awards players of all standards, and ensures everyone has a great time.

    In 2003, The University Open attracted 74 players from around Australia. It is our goal to try and increase these numbers and attract more local and interstate players. We have strived to gain more interstate entrants by organising affordable accommodation, and awarding a "Best Interstate Players' prize".

    Wish I was back in Oz, sounds like a great tournament, but ill have to wait until next year. (unless I lose my job here and we get the Visa paperwork for my Fiancee' through in the next few weeks and she graduates from uni early )
    doesn't all sound too likely

    I loved this tournament last year and I recommend it to all. Unfortunately the chances of me attending this year (and defending the transfer championship) aren't too good but I'll see.

    Ian may win 'The Big Three'-Gold Coast, Caloundra and Uni Open.
