    Just reminding everyone, especially organizers, that the Campbellville Open is scheduled for Nov 16-17th.
    Details are coming soon.

    We took the new tournament site out for a test drive last saturday with an Active tournament.
    Early reviews are all positive.

            The regular room rate at Mohawk Inn is $99/night.
            If you mention you are there for the chess tournament, $89 (a $10 discount)
            Rooms in the Treehouse are $10 more, or $99 for chess players.

            Visit their website to book your room:
            http://www.mohawkinn.com

            Some rooms have 2 beds, some have 1 King size bed, all the same price.
            Also a limited number of cots for a 3rd person.
            Be sure to specify your bed requirements when booking.

              Please note that our tournament listing on the CFC website has some inaccuracies, which we shall see about correcting. The official tournament flyer can be found at our website: www.miltonchess.ca

              The tournament flyer is also being circulated about in local clubs, and my thanks to those helping to get the word out. I hope everyone will please pre register early to help promote the event and keep the stress level for organizers to a minimum.

              Thanks all. :)

                  Hi all,

                  I hope you guys are planning to play in our weekend tournament Nov 16-17. Our event in September was a success and we would like to continue the momentum. Personally, I would be looking for revenge against some players from previous tourneys, so I hope they dont make excuses not to come out to the Campbellville Open :) Please note that with three guys splitting a room, two beds and a cot that is only thirty something dollars ( I'm a chess player not a calculator, ha). Not bad for one night and your commute time the next day for rounds four and five is in seconds walking not minutes/hours driving. Plus you could play chess to your heart's content into the night with other chess aficionados!

                    Folks, I had an inquiry as to the start time of round 3.
                    Round 3 is saturday at 6pm.
                    Has anyone seen it advertised as 8pm anywhere?
                    Please let me know ASAP and I'll get that corrected.

                    Thanks.

                          Why yes, there is a door prize!
                          But let's keep the mystery alive.
                          Anyway, pre registrations now at 15.
                          We are still on target for 80+ players. :)

                            To put everyone mind at ease, we will NOT be following the silly FQE rules regarding byes. :)
