    Go transit started to run trains on the Barrie line on weekends too. Check the schedule http://www.gotransit.com/timetables/...18/Table65.pdf
    Looks that it could be useful going home to Toronto or Barrie. Coming to Aurora you'll need a bus.

        There is no open section. Ontario organizers don't understand what an open section is. An open section is unrated up to 3000+ rating. Quebec organizers understand that pretty easily.
        Paul Leblanc from BC Open understand this simple thing.

                You shall learn how to count. This Open section will happen 14th time with various number of players in Aurora. While we can not claim yest as BJ does "100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong", we're slowly moving towards those numbers :)

                  But how easy is it to get there from the new subway station in Vaughan?

                  Also, somebody can start having tournaments at York now that it has a subway station.

                          Hi Egis:

                          You've posted:

                          Play-up fee – 30 CAD – a player can enter the higher Section if his/her rating is less than 100 points lower than the Section floor limit.

                          To me, this seems NOT normal.

                          The condition usually is that one can play up if "within 100 points of the section above floor limit". Can other organizers confirm whether I am right, that this is the normal template?

                          Under Aurora' term of "less than 100 points lower", it means, as far as I can see:

                          Two players in the 1500's want to play up at Aurora in the U 1600 section.

                          Player X is rated 1501 - he is allowed to play up (Less than 100 points below 1600).

                          Player Y is rated 1500 - he is NOT allowed to play up (NOT LESS THAN 100 points below 1600 - he is dead on 100 points lower, and so does not qualify).

                          Am I right on this Egis?? Is this what was intended?

                          What do others think? Is my interpretation correct?

                            For this tournament it will be "1501" eligibility. Then we will think how to reword it.

                              The new station is on the West side and still quite far from Aurora. I have not checked yet how good is connection with Aurora, especially on weekends. GO bus from Union should be a better option - the Aurora GO station is nearby a playing place - about 10 min walk.
                              The Vaughan station should be good alternative going downtown (Hart House or Annex).
