28 players turned up for our first Bayside Open of the year! Mordy HQ is always one of our more popular venues and it was an enjoyable return for players. We welcomed Tan Zi Kang, who is here from Malaysia for the next six months. The event was an Open with prizes for the winner, runner-up, and various rating gain prizes.

A new year and a new venue for us as our longstanding event The Bil Rose Aestival was played at the Camberwell Community Centre.

32 players across four divisions took part, which was an equal post-pandemic attendance for this event. Keeping with previous tradition, divisions were named for a bird theme.

It was great to see so many people from all across Victoria! Congratulations to our Division winners, David, Oscar, Oliver, and Luke and, as always, a huge thank you to all the people who supported this event.
