The ACF is particularly pleased to join the Melbourne Chess Club in celebrating the Club’s 150th anniversary with the presentation of the 2016 Australian national championship. Since the championship was first recognised in 1885, the Club’s involvement with this historic event has been extensive and continuous, and it is therefore fitting that our efforts combine once more to mark what will surely be a most memorable occasion.
