Time really flies. It is now exactly one year since we held the first ever chess tournament in this little Northern Cape town of Brandvlei. At the time we decided to name the tournament The Brandvlei Open and we had only twelve players who participated.
On 22 October 2016 the second Brandvlei Open, which attracted thirty three players, quite an improvement on the previous attempt, was held.
