CAWA kicked off chess in 2022 with the Trash Talk Blitz on Saturday 22 January in the State Theatre of WA as part of Fringe World.|
This was a casual event held in the foyer of Studio Underground and saw a good attendance of more than 40 people with ten boards in play.
Given the 40C temperatures and the ongoing COVID restrictions this was a terrific turnout and maybe we will need some more boards next year!
Many members of the general public enjoyed some casual chess in a great setting and we hope to see some of them at our clubs or future weekend tournaments.
Many thanks to the State Theatre Centre for hosting us.
