    The Ontario Junior has been held many times before. My database has games from Ontario Juniors held in 2011, 1996, 1995, 1994, 1993, 1989, 1988, 1987, 1986, 1985, 1981, 1980, 1979, 1978, and 1975. I'm too lazy to look up the crosstables.

    Is it open to any junior? Or just residents of Ontario? Aged under 20 as of what date?

      Ok. Probably my fault that I did not checked properly. The tournament was last held in 2011 and was 6 years ago. In that case, we are reviving the tournament again after a lapse of 7 years same as us reviving the Canadian Junior last year.

      Aged 20 and below as of Jan 2018.

      Thanks for your correction, Hugh.

          Pre-Registration will be made available within a week or so.

          Registration starts to trickle in. We encourage early registration. Entry fee is very affordable and there is a discount of $ 10 before Jan 1, 2018.

          FIDE rated for Open and U1800 section. Where can you get such a good deal ?

          Space is limited to 100 players. We will close the registration after we hit 100 players.

          First come first serve.

          We hope to have your full support from parents and players from Ontario.

          Canadian Junior will be held in Humber College, Toronto later in August 8-12, 2017 and WJCC will be held in Turkey in September.

          Cheers

              We are almost 20% of our target of 100 players

              Places are limited and dateline for early bird is Jan 1, 2018.

              The early bird catches the worm....so it says....go get it.

              The new list of players will be out on end of Thursday. Check our website www.elevatemychess.com for the update

              We just received some entries from Ottawa and a pretty strong junior in the Open section. I think he got a perfect score in the recent Aurora fall tournament in the U2000 section.

              Stay tuned

                  Thanks Vadim for the information.

                  I have checked out with CFC and the suggestion is to let the organizer know as soon as possible that we will be sending official players there and upon our completion of CJCC, we will submit the names immediately.

                  On another note, the pre-registration is growing by the day and we are closing on 30 now. Don't miss out on the early bird pricing and a place in the tournament. We may have to close registration once we hit the magic number of 100. We have players as far as from Ottawa on the east and Windsor on the south western Ontario. FIDE rated for both Open and U1800 section.

                  Thanks to those who have registered.

                  Cheers

                    I vaguely recall playing in one of these in Guelph in the 1970s.

                      The latest pre-registration will be out on our website tomorrow.

                      Another top junior just registered making the Open section very exciting.

                      Almost 10 players in each section at the moment.

                      Remember - the winner of the Open section gets invited to play in the CJCC invitational section and gets a chance to play among the top 10 juniors/invited players in Canada. How often do you get this opportunity ?

                      Many thanks to those who has registered so far.

                      Cheers

                        Early bird dateline is Jan 1, 2018. After this date, price goes up by $ 10 for all sections

                        For such a reasonable price ( early bird fee ), we really hope you will register earlier than later.

                        Once you register, we will keep you up to date with the latest development of the tournament with our newsletter and if see if you are in the correct sections( pre-registered list ). No worries if you will miss the early bird dateline if you register now.

                        We look forward to more entries sooner than later.

                        Cheers

                              We are almost 40 now. Thanks to those who have registered so far.

                              Considering what had unfortunately happened in Mississauga Open last weekend, we may limit our numbers to 80-100 players.

                              Once we reach 80 players registered, we may close the registration. Pairing will be done the day before and round one will start on time which I think is very important to players and parents.

                              This limitation of players firstly is to ensure comfort for the players so that it will not be too crowded and easier for the TD to control and monitor the players. We would not want a repeat of the incidents to happen again.

                              If you or your kids really want to play in this tournament, please do ensure registration earlier than later. Early bird discount ends on Jan 1st 2018

                              We are at 50% of our revised target number of players now.

                              We hear and listen to feedback from players and parents.

                              On another positive note, we are going to have two live boards for the first two boards. Two DGT boards with the associated DGT clocks as well.

                              With our IA Danny Goldenberg and assistant Mikhail Egorov as the TD we certainly hope to host a well organized tournament for all to enjoy.
