My old club, Canterbury, will host a rapid play tournament that will be held over the next three Mondays commencing tonight at 7.30PM. Venue will be the Lakemba Memorial Services club located at 26 Quigg St, in Lakemba. I must say that I didn't know anything about this event until I received the NSWCA's email, so thanks to them for the info, although it could have been sent a little earlier.
If you're going, try to turn up on time - that is, way before 7.30PM. We don't want to be there til late.
Speaking of rapids, my friend Leo Tenorio sent in some info about their club's next event this coming March 1. It will be the first leg in a new series of rapid events in Sydney, just perfect for those time-starved weekend warriors out there who have neither the time nor the inclination to surrender a whole weekend to chess. The problem is, anyone living above, say, Strathfield, could be easily forgiven for thinking that this whole event is really just for "Westies"!
