      Hi Christina/Aris,

      Seems the U-8 competitions being dropped aligns to FIDE. Any insight into why FIDE discontinued U-8 at World level ?

          If you accidentally specify the incorrect section upon registration, no problem, just email
          cfcyouthchess at gmail dot com
          and
          arismarghetis at rogers dot com

          We can easily fix that, please do not re-register, thanks.

          P.S. 54 players and counting!

            The registration system requires a CFC#, so families with new CFC memberships in the last few days, are awaiting a database refresh. When that happens, I'll post here to try registering again.

              UPDATE as of 10am:

              1) if you became a NEW CFC member by Wednesday evening, you should be able to register now (if you can't, please ASAP advise Christina and I)

              2) if you renewed an expired CFC membership by Wednesday evening, that should be corrected in the CYCC registrations database by this evening
              (N.B. players with expired CFC memberships can register for the CYCC, and then separately renew their CFC membership with the CFC Office)

              Kind regards, Aris (arismarghetis at rogers dot com)
