Chess Association of Western Australia


2008 South West Open

The first South West Open since 2005 was held on 17th and 18th of May at the Bunbury Catholic College.

The tournament was organised by Dr Julian Painter, who was also the DOP.

The number of participants, only 16, was disappointing but with more notice next year, and a return to a warmer month, we will hopefully see the tournament return to itís glory days. Despite the low numbers, the tournament was quite a strong affair.
