        It was a busy weekend for the Canadian Chess Challenge!

        Both Manitoba and PEI ran their Provincial championships on Saturday.

        There were also a qualification tournament for the Quebec Chess Challenge in Outaouais. On Sunday, there was a qualification tournament with 342 players run by Toronto for the Ontario Chess Challenge! It doesn't finish there...there was another Ontario qualifier on Saturday run by the CCYC group which attracted over 60 players.

        Next weekend (May 9) New Brunswick will hold a qualification tournament for their Provincial Championship. It will probably be the largest CMA online event so far with over 500 players! Quebec will also host their girl's Championship and their last qualification tournament for their Provincial on the same day. There is also another qualifying event for the Ontario Chess Challenge which is being run by Corinna Wan.

        The following weekend (May 16) Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario will be running their Provincial Championships.

        All these events are rated by the Chess'n Math Association, Canada's National Scholastic Chess Organization.
