  • Golden Horseshoe Chess Championship - June 2-3, 2018

    Elevate My Chess Canada Inc is going to organize our second major tournament and this time is Mississauga.

    Location : Sandman Signature Mississauga Hotel

    We are experimenting with the placed based prize money this time with an unconditionally guaranteed prize money of more than $ 7,000 ( about $ 7,500 ).

    Why are you calling it the Golden Horseshoe? Mississauga is in GTA.

      Mississauga is strategically located at the heart of the
      Greater Golden Horseshoe - one of the largest and
      fastest growing urbanized regions in North America.

        Okay Gary If that is what you say. Google says Golden Horseshoe goes from Burlington to Hamilton. No Mention of Mississauga.

          hmm, my google says it bigger than that :)
          "The Golden Horseshoe is a secondary region of Southern Ontario, Canada, which lies at the western end of Lake Ontario with outer boundaries stretching south from Lake Erie and north to Lake Scugog."

            Rubbish! That's not what google says at all. The original "horse shoe" wrapped around the western end of Lake Ontario, stretching from Niagara Falls to Oshawa (to complete the horseshoe). Recently governments have extended the "definition" much more broadly, to what effect is not entirely clear.

              I think it is called Greater Golden Horseshoe these days.

                The "Golden Horseshoe", in what little is left of my mind, has always been Niagara around through Hamilton to Toronto. Wikipedia seems to agree although it extends it out the east to the Shwa. The "Greater" definition seems to go east to Peterborough, north to Barrie, and west to KW.

                Arguments as to where the "middle" of the horseshoe is, well, I'm sure they could occupy many threads on this forum.

                    Tourist books relate to the Golden Horseshoe as
                    around Niagara Falls (Reference Horseshoe Falls).. Toronto has it's own Tourist Guide. Someone coming from say Quebec or Nova Scotia may not find Mississauga in many tourist attractions books. That was my main discussion point.
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mississauga

                    I see no reference to Golden Horseshoe. I do see reference to Greater Toronto Area.

                      We expect to better our Oakville number of 185 players.

                      Thanks to all who have supported out tournaments.
