Aussie Chessers Imprisoned!

Well, not really.

The other day I received an email from Steven Carroll who informed me about the Mount Alexander Schools Chess Competition. What is interesting about this event, held on October 9, was that they played it inside the Old Castlemaine Gaol, in Victoria.

Chess Kids ran the event and, according to that outfit, it was the biggest rural/regional event Australiawide that they have ever been involved in.

Blogger Sam Grumont has a short report here.
