Australian Day Weekender at MCC call 03 9416 3149 for details, you might find it is a fair bit cheaper than the ones run by Chess World

hello

The Box Hill Webmaster is on a yacht or beach at the moment so we have fallen a little out of date. I have pasted in below the bare details of the Box Hill first half calendar. We don't run many week-enders as a Club; it is not our speciality. A more Victorian view could be obtained by PM to ChessGuru; he has his finger on the pulse of all significant events. Gazza would be the other good contact but he doesn't seem to log-on here no matter how much I stir him.
