With the COVID-19 restrictions having eased in Victoria recently, Geelong Chess Club and the Victorian Rural Chess League have been working together to make this tournament happen in a safe manner. Though we have had a good run in Victoria, we must still be cautious; there will be regulations to manage the safety of all participants.
Most notably, there is an entry limit of 28 players, due to the distancing requirements. This tournament is a great opportunity for country players to pit themselves against some of the strongest competition in regional Victoria, or just to get your feet wet in a friendly tournament environment.
