  • 2017 Aurora Fall Open - October 14-15

    We've not yet started to do much about the next Aurora Open except that the hall was booked for the Fall Open one year ago. Though, 2 players have already convinced us to accept their entry fees LOL

      So top section is not open. According to Brodie.

        Organizer is not learning very fast. Open Section means open to all.

                  Hi Egis:

                  One correction to your pre-registered list:

                  My FIDE rating is 1581.

                  Looking forward to playing again in one of your great tournaments.

                        What is your room capacity? I heard some were shut out last time.

                          Depends how close to each other you'd like to play :) Our estimation is 144 players to have a comfortable tournament.
                          The last time we accommodated all willing to come, though it took several days to figure out all details, and meanwhile some declined offers due to changes in their plans. Thus, don't leave to the last minute to register :)

                              bumping the thread -> ten days till the tournament!!!

                              IM Amon Hambleton joined the tournament, as well as other ~15 players. Though, the bureaucracy wheels move slowly and they are not on the online list yet.
