          The top section (Top Guns) will be both FIDE and CFC rated. The other sections will be CFC rated.

                Re: Hamilton Summer Open 2017 - August 19-20

                Please note that in Hamilton tournaments we have a 1 hour late rule including the FIDE section. It means we start your clock when the round begins and then you get a forfeit loss if you don't arrive by the end of an hour.

                Fide requires that tournaments using the 1 hour late rule post it publically before the event begins.

                  Hi Garvin,

                  We all appreciate your efforts in the Hamilton area! Thanks! As a chess organizer, what ratings do you use for your events?

                  As an active chess tournament organizer in Canada, your way of doing things is important...not sure why you did not weigh in on the subject.

                    Larry,

                    Sorry if I have not been as active in governors' and chess talk forums as in the past. Im just really busy these days. We use CFC ratings most of the time and for weekend swiss tournaments we use FIDE and CFC for the top players.

                      Id like to request that people use the gravel parking lot first. Apparently the paved one is for emergency vehicles. Thanks!

                        People with FM or NM titles should remember to tell me in their emails as they are eligible for a discount. I have a very short term memory!

                            Just a reminder our playing hall is kind of cold due to the AC, so bring a sweater or jacket.
