    Thank you Excelsior Chess Club for these excellent events. I really enjoyed your 1st Anniversary tournament and I hope to play in many more. I have been out of Ontario/Toronto chess politics for many years, but in my day, we would try not to hold tournaments on the same weekend. I notice that Feb 17, there is Hart House Reading week and February Rapid happening on the same day. I guess if there is demand for both tournaments that is great.
