Hi All
Just a note that this event is on next Sunday! Come and enjoy 10 rounds of chess for a maximum of $15!

Rapid and blitz - where anything can happen, and often does.

It was a fantastic weather day - well, even for chess! We played a 10 round event in the Hardy centre, our newest venue. All seemed to enjoy the location and it was pleasant to enjoy lunch under the shade of a tree. Daniel Han and Hilton Bennett, our olympiad returnees, shared the 1st place in the Open while David Chen again came in 1st in the U18 division. Some entries had to pull out at the last moment, so we hope to see you at the next Momentum event on 11th Dec.
