We held our inaugural Rapid Chess Open on August 21st, 2021. The day was a great success with registrations sold out, and some fierce competition within both the Junior and Open categories. Matthew Caden took out the first prize in the Open category, winning a $100 voucher along with his trophy. Runner up was Bunbury chess veteran Julian Painter. Timothy Kaempf did very well for his age by playing up in the Open division, stretching himself against the adults. Logan Kerr won the Junior category, with Patrick Depillo runner up, and Caspian Reid a close third.
