    Default Oakville Winter Open - Feb 2-4, 2018

    Hi Chess Players and Chess Parents,

    I am starting this new thread as the old one is getting too long and probably players may miss this announcement. I would like to make some announcements/points on the tournament as it is less than 1 months now

    1. We have almost 140 players on board now. Latest list on our website should reflect all the players with their number of days and section.

    2. Please check and your section and number of days and let us know at if you find anything wrong with the information.

    3. There are some players who have not indicated their number of days despite us writing to them a couple of times. Please respond accordingly. thanks on this point.

    4. if you intend to stay at the hotel, there is a special rate for the players at $ 109/night. Just quote EMC to get this rate.

    5. We are offering lunch package from the hotel at $ 10 for one. You can buy separately at our website. We will have a list for those who have paid through our website and provide him with a voucher for them to claim the food from the hotel later on. if you purchase from the hotel for the same food package, it will be more expensive. You can still buy from us on the day itself and pay cash to us and we will give you the voucher. This arrangement is made especially for the players' convenience and also cheaper for them instead of buying direct from the hotel.

    6. Our current entry fee is going to end on Jan 17th after which the price will be on site price which will be $ 120 for everyone ( no exception ). We are still hopeful we will reach 150 players and hope you guys will support us as we are still short of about 10+ players.

    7. There will be 2 live boards on our maiden tournament ( we are working on how to upload onto our website now ).

    8. There are 1 GM, 3 IM and 2 FMs on our Championship section and if you want to have an experience playing against them, do come and join us in the Championship section. I am sure it will be a great experience playing against these titled players. It is not often that you have a chance to play against these 6 titled players.

    9. We have many new CFC members which should contribute good revenue for the CFC. We also have some members who have renewed their CFC memberships to play in this tournament.

    Thanks to those who have registered so far to make our tournament a good turnout.

    We will try to ensure that the tournament will be well run.

    For those who have registered, please stay tuned for our weekly newsletter for updates on the tournament.

    Cheers to Chess in Canada
