All chess players are invited to participate in the 2019 Southern Suburbs Open. This will be the first tournament to be held at the club in 2019. It is open to all CAWA members (SSCC members receive an entry fee discount).
The Southern Suburbs Open had 32 entries in 2018. It will once again be part of the WA Grand Prix (Paul Meyer Awards), so we expect it to attract many new players from outside the club, as well as most of our current club members. Don't miss out on this tournament!
