    Re: 2018 Canadian Junior Chess Championship - Aug 8-12, 2018

    UPDATED INFORMATION


    We have finally managed to get rooms at Humber college for players to stay

    Limited rooms only for the duration of the tournament. Very affordable.

    Information will be on our website and newsletter this weekend.

    If you need information urgently, please email to info@elevatemychess.com or gary@elevatemychess.com and I will send you the information. Please book only if you are staying so that you won't deny others.

    Book now before they are gone.

        Registration starts coming in and more enquiries about the accommodation at the Humber college.

        Please do not procrastinate about booking the rooms there as the rooms will run out fast.

        They reserve about 25 double rooms in a unit at only $ 80/night ( plus tax ) for the players.

        Open section winners ( boy and girl ) will both win a slot to the Invitational section for year 2019 ( subject to some restrictions ).

              It seems like Tian Shi Yuan has replaced Richard Chen, who I assume has withdrawn. How did she qualify?

                Hi Jeffrey,

                Sherry Tian actually replaces Qiyu Zhou and not Richard as the 3rd girl

                Mark Plotkin replaces Richard Chen

                Both replacement by CFC rating

                Thanks

                      CYCC is finally over after so much anticipation with almost 400 players. Winners will be going to WYCC and WCCC respectively. Canadian Open starts today

                      Canadian Junior is coming next from Aug 8-12, 2018

                      We are closing on to 50 players now. Latest list will be update tomorrow ( website and newsletter ) There are a couple new registrations ( just now ) which will not be reflected in the new list.

                      One month to go before tournament begins and one week to go before early bird price goes up.

                      Please come and join us and make this tournament a success as well. We had 100 players last year and we are moving to a much better venue this year which is Humber college ( after feedbacks from parents and players )

                      We hope to win the bid for next year edition and make it an even better one.

                      Check out the link below for all the information and online registration.

                      We have players from British Columbia to Quebec this year and also a player from United Kingdom.

                      Our Invitational section features one of the strongest field in recent years to determine the two best players ( boy and girl ) to represent Canada at the World Junior Chess Championship later this year

                      Cheers for Chess in Canada

                        We are closing on 50 players now and should be above 50 in the next few days.

                        Should any player who has difficulty in attending this tournament but would really like to play, please email to ghua71@yahoo.ca. We will try to work out something for you.

                        So far we have 4 confirmed players from BC and two of them are in the Invitational section and the other two in the Open section. A couple of players from Ottawa s well.

                        Please don't wait till last minute to register. Help us to organize the tournament the best that we can do for you by registering earlier than later. Save $ 20 if you register before July 15th.

                        Winner of the Open section will get to play in the Invitational section as of the then ten invited players for 2019 CJCC.

                        Cheers

                          We have just touched the 50th players mark - half of our targeted players which was achieved in last year CJCC.

                          Trophies have just been completed and delivery in the next two weeks.( 9 beautiful trophies, 3 maple leaf plaques and a rolling trophy ( for the champion - boy and girl )

                          4 days to go before early bird entry fee ends on July 15, 2018. We are still missing players in the Open section. All other sections are adequately filled.

                          I would love to be called Canadian Champion irrespective of the section that i played. . I know that I will play in the higher section next time after I win the section that I played in this time.

                          25 more days before tournament begins.

                          Cheers for Chess in Canada
