It seems we have hit a happy medium between good slow ACF rated tournament games and fast chess nights.

Basically, we are up 4 players per night on average so far this year.

We have a good pool of very strong Juniors.

They includes some of the strongest female age group players in the state/country.

We have one Australian U/8 Champion and 2 Australian Girls Champions in regular attendance.

The only group missing from the club is the over 2000 FIDE crowd.

We desperately need some “Marquee players” for our members to play.

Miami has just signed Messi. Before it was Beckham.

These signings turned USA from a soccer backwater to them having the strongest female team on the planet.

See you this Wednesday for Round Two of the Norm Braybrooke Classic.

QJ and ACF rated.
