Parramatta Gets Gig

It's official! The Parramatta bid is the winner and will host the 2007-08 Australian Chess Championships.

One thing to note, however, is that Parr's bid was actually ranked first by the ACF and would have been declared winner if the NSWBA venue was confirmed. But given Parr's withdrawal - the ACF naturally had no other option but to then formally hand the gong to the second best bid, Parramatta.

Well done to the boys and I am very glad that New South Wales has won this one over the south.

What is your rough estimate of the accommodation charges and the travel charges you have saved personally by the event being in Sydney TCG?
