I guess all great things start with a (crazy) idea. So, when Chrystal Samuel from PRG mentioned that PRG wants to host an Open chess tournament, the Stellenbosch Chess Club immediately agreed to assist. Maybe it was a case of fools rush in where angels fear to tread, but we were convinced it would be great to host a rated tournament in Stellenbosch that could cater for youth development and novices to the Elite players. Stellenbosch of course has a rich history of great chess players with IM Henry Steel just one of many. Schools chess is also alive and well with Ikaya, Eikestad and Idas Valley Primary Schools, and Stellenbosch High School all taking part and PRG winning the Under 19 Division in the Western Cape Top Schools Tournament in 2016.
