There will be a Rapid tournament beginning next Wed (4th Feb 2009) for three weeks with three rounds per evening.

In order to play, you will have to register for the new year. The costs is $15 for club fees ($10 for juniors, seniors and pensioners) and $10 for non-NSWCA members rating fees (you don't have to pay if you are already member of NSWCA for 2009).

You will also be required to become a member of the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club (must be over 18 years of age).
1 year = $11
