Granite city Open 2024

26th to 28th JULY 2024

This website has been going through an upgrade in the last few days and our host is having difficulty getting it all back in place but this announcement cannot wait any longer till its fully back up and running.

The 2024 Granite City Open has been CANCELLED.  This is due to our venue not being fully renovated as we first hoped/planned.  We have looked over the years at various different venues but we have not been able to find anything suitable for hotel rooms, space for boards, affordable hire that is semi-central/got transport links and we didn't want to have to "do it" smaller and limit entries.

We have also taken the decision, after what will be a 5 year absence, to call it a day on the Granite City Open.  Since 2003, we have had a blast and have had some great names grace our stage but as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end".

We would like to thank all the people who have supported us over the years, especially the sponsors as without them, the events would not have been possible.  Also to the participants, who have kept coming back, helping make this event a success.

We will be in touch with our sponsors to return any monies held by the GCO and likewise for the few people, who we still hold entry money for and have been patiently waiting for the event to be up and running again.

Lastly, we would like apologise to everyone who has already booked holidays off work etc (as we have) but again, this decision is out of our hands.

Thanks again to everyone for your support over the years and hopefully we will see you around at other events !!


Derek, Debbie & all the GCO crew ❤
