January Jamboree Chess Tournaments
January 24 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
January Jamboree – tournaments on Sunday afternoons
The January Jamboree tournaments are a new innovation by the SA Chess Association to see if chess will be popular on Sunday afternoons at the Chess Centre – and it certainly appears to be!
The first Sunday, 10th January, attracted 38 players on a super-hot day.
The second Sunday 53!!
Today is the last for January .. but probably many more ..
Sunday 24 January 2021 from 1.30pm to 4.00pm
Please note – the temperature is predicted to be 41C which means we will cancel this event and put on the 31st January – please check here for an update!
Chess Centre, Ranelagh St Adelaide
$10 per player per Sunday
4 or 5 rounds (15 mins + 2 secs)
Small cash prizes
FOUR TOURNAMENTS WILL BE RUN CONCURRENTLY EACH SUNDAY, but this may change slightly depending on the numbers – the first afternoon saw the Open and Returnees combined and the Beginners and Juniors combined – it all worked out great!
- JUNIOR (under 18)
- RETURNEES: someone taught you the moves years ago, maybe you played at school, but you can’t remember the last time you touched a piece. This should be the interesting one!
To enter, simply turn up at the Chess Centre around 1pm or text Alan Goldsmith on 0401 672 481 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
