      We are closing on to 50 players now. Once we hit 80 players, we are going to close the registration.

      Early bird price ends on Jan 1st 2018. It's about 10 days from now.

      If you intend to play, do not procrastinate and wait. Holidays passed by very fast and you will miss the dateline.....

      On another note, the trophies are ready. 9 beautiful trophies and with winners getting free entry to Canadian Junior Chess Championship on April 8-12, 2018 in Humber College ( Toronto ) the current entry fee is a steal.

      $ 50 - Open ( Fide and CFC rated )
      $ 40 - U1800 ( Fide and CFC rated )
      $ 30 - U1300 (CFC rated )

      New list will be out on Thursday or Friday.

      Cheers to Chess in Canada

Winners of other sections will get to play in the higher sections ( if applicable ) at the CJCC with free entry fees. You will still get to win free entry and play in your current section if you don't qualify for the higher section.

        Open: Trophies + 1 entry boys (if CFC 2200+ by Jan 1, 2018 – then a place in the Invitation section of 2018 Canadian Junior CC)

        Open: Trophies + 1 entry girls (if CFC 2000+ by Jan 1, 2018 – then a place in the Invitation section of 2018 Canadian Junior CC)

        **The player must reach at least 1301 to play in the U-1800 Section

        Winner of the Invitational section will represent Canada ( boy and girl ) and win air ticket worth $ 1,500 to go to the World Junior Chess Championship which will be held at Turkey next year.

        Latest rating will be used in the next update.

                    Nicely crafted trophies ( 9 of them ) with the height of at least 2 feet for all of them. If you want to be one of the winners ( 3 X 3 ) , come and join the fight and fun.

                    We are still lacking players in the Open section.

                      I was wondering about the history, so I checked the CFC website. I think most were round-robins like the Canadian Junior itself.

                        Im digging thru my memory banks (kinda like snow banks these days) and my thinking now is 1973 Peter Nurmi, 1974 Peter Nurmi, 1975 Martin Bucholtz, 1976 Phil Morenz, 1977 Alan Brown, 1978 Jon Pajak, 1979 Jon Pajak. Also Deen Hergott factors in just after that and I believe Ian Findlay.

                          Tournament commencing in less than 3 weeks from today.

                          We have surpassed 60 players now. If you want to be Ontario Champion in either one of the sections, come and join us. Beautifully designed huge trophies for all the winners ( 9 of them ) and win a free entry to Canadian Junior. For Open section winner, you may get to play in the Invitational sectional which is comprised of "INVITED 10 best players from Canada " and plays round robin 9 rounds.

                          Players from Ottawa and Windsor have joined us and we hope stronger players in the Open section will also join us.

                          Cheers

                            The tournament is commencing in about 2 weeks time. i would love to see who are the Ontario Champion for the 3 sections. It is a big deal if I am one of the player to have an opportunity to be called Ontario Champion in my life irrespective of the section. Of course, being the champion of the Open section will be the icing of the cake.....

                            See you guys soon

                              We are closing on to 70 now and will close for registration once we reach 80.

                              12 strong players vying in the Open section. If you wish to be the Ontario Junior Champion in the Open section, there is still time. Don't procrastinate and hesitate any longer. Join us this weekend before we close the registration. First come first serve.

                              If you have registered and your name is not in the list, please email us asap to rectify the problem although it is unlikely to happen as all registration will come with an order number.


                              It's less than 2 weeks now before the tournament commence.

                              We look forward to hosting you guys.

                                Bumping up....

                                Regular price ends this weekend Jan 21, 2018 ( Sunday ) after which onsite price applies.

                                There is no guarantee that there will be a place for onsite registration.

                                We may close the registration when we see fit.

                                We just had another registration from Ottawa.

                                10 days to go before tournament commence.
