CZECH OPEN 2002
13th International Chess & Bridge Festival
Pardubice 11th - 28th July 2002
 
Dear chessfriends,
I am honoured to invite you most cordially to 13th Chess Festival of Pardubice City. I hope firmly " the thirteen" will not be either for you, players, or for us, organizers an unlucky number and this year's festival will succeed again. In an effort to submit you the widest chess offer we included for the first time in the programme also problem solving competition, bughouse and Fisherandom tournament. For those who want in addition to main tournaments to play other "serious games" is newly included 7 round rating tournament opened for all interested. Another modification is division of TOP CLUB to TOP CLUB "10" and TOP CLUB "5" according to numbers of starts.
The festival will be gradually expanded even into new non-chess disciplines. This year for the first time international bridge and go tournaments will form part of the festival. Other board games will be presented, too. We will be very pleased if these disciplines appeal to you, players, and if you say to your friends about them, who specialize in them.
Novelty in the services field is an offer of transport from your home right to the playing hall or accommodational facilities with cars Skoda Octavia combi of a partner firm.
In the same way as in the previous year we have been preparing International Chess Tournaments Series CZECH TOUR 2002/2003, whose part will be in addition to Chess Festival of Pardubice City CZECH OPEN also rating tournaments in Olomouc, Znojmo, Bedrichov, Prague and Marianske Lazne.
I am looking forward to meeting you.
