    We will have players all over Canada to compete in this tournament. Players from BC and QC have confirmed participation and we have received enquiries from AB as well. We have also received enquiries from China, Ukraine and India if they can participate as well. They can however only compete in the Open, U1800 and U1300 sections only and not the Invitational section as the winner of the Invitational section ( Boy and Girl ) will represent Canada at the World Junior and Girls U20 Championship 2018 Gebze, Kocaeli, Turkey 4-Sep-2018 16-Sep-2018. The winners will be provided air tickets worth at least $ 1,500 each and probably additional allowance to Turkey.

    Last year ( 2017 ) winners - Richard Chen ( boy ) and Cynthia Cui ( girl ) played at Italy and had a great time.

    We will have a top section - an Invitation section of 10 players where they will be playing 9 rounds - round robin format.

    The other sections will be Open, U1800 and U1300 where it will be a swiss system of 9 rounds for Open and U1800 and 6 rounds for U1300.

    More details coming up.

    Stay tuned for more updates.

                            Bumping up.....

                            Registration starts coming in now.....

                            Pre-registered list should be up next weekend. I have been busy with Golden Horseshoe CC and now that it is over, I can concentrate on this tournament.

                            We are also working with the college to try to get places to stay for the duration of the tournament. Details coming up later.

                            Information on CJCC on the link below.

                            We hope the registration will come in sooner than later.

                            We are holding this year tournament in a big nice venue where we can fit in at least 150-180 players at Humber college.

                            The winners (boy and girl) of the Invitational section gets to represent Canada at the WJCC in Turkey this year and also a travelling bursary of $ 1,500 each from tournament organizer.
