JETS loses major sponsor – What can Queenslanders do to help?

After 13 years of support, Geraldine Johns-Putra is ending her sponsorship of the Junior Elite Training Squad.

In those 13 years, Johns-Putra (and her legal consulting firm Johns-Putra Limited) has helped hundreds of Australia’s most promising young players. JETS and Australia’s junior chessplayers owe the former Olympian (both as player and captain) a great debt of gratitude for her long association with JETS.

JETS began in 1999 and has held an annual camp, physical or virtual, every year since then. Though a new sponsor is currently being sought, the 2023 camp is confirmed for 1-5 July 2023.
