    We are also pondering the idea of holding a blitz tournament on the Friday night.

    If there is sufficient interest, it will also be an opportunity to get those CFC dues out of the way so we can start on time Saturday morning.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at zduki005@uottawa.ca

        Re: Cucc 2018

        An anonymous donor has decided to contribute $150 to the blitz tournament prize fund on Friday night!

        Hopefully this will encourage more students to abandon their classes on Friday in order to make it to Ottawa on time. ;)

        More details to follow!

          Bumping!

          Less than 2 months to go. Registration goes up 10 dollars in less than a month. I hope you all are getting your teams ready for CUCC 2018.

          For those who wish to participate in the blitz tournament, please indicate the number of participants from your school in the comments section on the registration form. This is so we know how many people to accommodate for on Friday night.

          Thank you!

            Bump!

            2 weeks until registration goes up 10 dollars, get those teams organized and send us your lineups!

            On behalf of all of us at UOttawa I wish all students a successful exam season.

              Hi Zach,

              Expect University of Toronto to register 4 teams within the next few days. But we will not have the rosters yet.

                *bump*

                About 1 month before the event and only 4 days until the registration fee goes up 10 bucks! Get those registrations in guys!

                We would like to be able to get a registration list up within the next week or so.

                      With 2 weeks left before CUCC 2018, we have reached 98 preregistered players. We will certainly topple 100, making this the biggest turnout in recent CUCC history. Please see the updated preregistered list above.

                        107 players + blitz info!

                        107 players!!! Special mention to University of Waterloo, who are now the top seeds of the entire tournament with an average rating of 2364!! Also a special mention to Ryerson University, who are participating for the first time in years!

                        A reminder to participants to RSVP for the blitz tournament on Friday, January 12th. You may do so by sending an email to uochess@gmail.com, stating the number of participants. Here are the details:

                        10 rounds
                        5 minute 0 second increment blitz
                        Swiss system
                        Tournament starts at 7 pm.

                        The winner of the tournament will receive $100. The runner up will receive $50. This prize money is available due to the contribution of an anonymous chesstalk donor!

                        In order to participate in the blitz, we simply ask that all participants' pending CFC dues be taken care of prior to the event. This will help us stick to the schedule on Saturday by making sure round 1 starts on time.

                        Thank you everyone!

                          Best wishes to players and organizers for the 2018 CUCC event in Ottawa! :)

                          With over 100 players, I believe this will be the largest field ever seen for a post-secondary event in Canada including only Canadian teams. The Pan-Ams held in Montreal, 1969, and Kitchener, 1984, were larger.

                          Safe journeys in the approaching winter storm!

                          Cheers,
                          Frank Dixon

                              Blitz results!

                              Thank you for your kind words, Frank.

                              118 players have signed up for the CUCC 2018, 30 of which made the treacherous journey through the snowstorm to play some 5 0 blitz on Friday night.

                              The 150 dollar prize fund was split 3 ways due to a 3-way tie for first between Tony Bao, Terry Song, and Maroun Tomb.

                              Thank you to everyone who came, and good luck to all CUCC participants this weekend!

                              Full tournament results below:
