Uthungulu Summer open

The Uthungulu Summer open took place over the weekend of 27th/28th February at Hoerskool Richardsbaai, whose hall provided an excellent playing venue. Seven rounds of 60/60 standard chess were played, and a total of 169 chess enthusiasts took part in 4 sections, split by age. My thanks to Lisa Griffiths for supplying the following photos:
