          We have finally crossed over "40" players now. More than half of our target of 70 players. About ten registered over last week and one from London.

          Remember that the dateline before price increase is Nov 5, 2018 ( Monday ). Don't miss the dateline if you intend to play.

          One day tournament where the prize money is more than $ 2,000 ( based on 70 players )

          Come and join the fun

          Cheers

                        At last count, we are closing on 60 players now and today is the last day before price goes up. Less than 3 weeks before tournament begins

                        Latest pre-registered list will be updated this weekend.

                        Thanks to Egis ( our TD ) , you can access them in chess results.

                        We are very hopeful to reach our target number of 70 players after all after a pretty slow start in registration.

                        Cheers

                            And finally....

                            We have an IM on board for our 1st annual Oakville Rapid and Blitz tournament. We also have quite a number of registrations from Brantford.

                            Closing on to 60 players now in the Rapid section and close to 40 players in the Blitz section.

                            2 weeks to go now....

                            Cheers

                              9 days to go before tournament begins.

                              We have 58 players in the Rapid section and 40 players in the Blitz section.

                              Still hoping to reach 70 players for the Rapid section

                              New list will be up this weekend

                                We have finally reached 60 players in the Rapid section and 40 players in the Blitz section.

                                Latest list will be out this weekend.

                                About 1 week to go before we start our first annual Oakville Chess Challenge in 2018.

                                Finally we also have 20 players in the Open section lead by an International Master.

                                Help us to reach our target of 70 players.

                                Thanks to all who have registered so far and support EMC all this while.

                                Cheers
