  • 2019 north american youth chess championship

    I received great news in the last few days from our FIDE rep, Hal Bond, that the Chess'n Math Association (CMA) will be organizing this event for the CFC in Kingston, Ontario sometime in August 2019!

    This is a 9 round championship which allows for international norms....and is a MUST DO event for all talented Canadian youngsters.

    The CMA organized the event for the CFC in 2010...it was the first time the event came to Canada...and it worked out well as the CMA was celebrating its 25th Anniversary. The event was held in Montreal.In 2013 it came back to Canada, and the dynamic CMA Regional Director,Francis Rodrigues, turned this tournament into a norm event...it was held in Toronto and set a new participation record which has not been beat to this date.

    Canada hosted an excellent event in Windsor, Ontario in 2016. The event is suppose to rotate from Canada to the U.S. to Mexico and back to Canada. For some strange unknown reason, the 2019 event was not approved for Canada until last week..

    I would like to thank the CFC for working hard to bring this awesome event back to Canada and supporting the CMA in its bid!

    Details with regards to 2019 will be announced shortly.

    Sincerely,

    Larry Bevand

            But the CYCC in July 2019 could be too late to decide the official player

              Not based on the information that I have been given. CYCC will be in the first or second week of July and WCCC will be in the last two weeks of August. We are awaiting dates for CYCC and have asked the organizers to make it as early as possible in July.

                              Just checked 2018 in mexico, also two games per day, to be accurate, there are three days with 2 games, and three days with 1 game
