  • RA Winter Open: passing 45 players

    Hi again, we are pleased to report that registrations are continuing, and with still 2 weeks ago, we are now passing 45 players, including a GM and 2 IMs.

    Please note that while you can still pay by cheque-in-the-mail, that the early payment discount was only for before January, and so can no longer be taken advantage of. In addition to receiving registrations/payments by mail, I'll also be at the RA chess club the next 2 Thursday evenings, January 14th & 21st.

    Yours in chess,

    Aris Marghetis
    - Organizer/TD, FIDE Arbiter
    - EOCA President, CFC Governor

    Please note that we are looking for at least 3 floater players :
    - floater players help the TD guarantee no “forced byes”
    - floater players are paired and rated like all the players
    - floater players play for free, but under some conditions :
    ----- they play in 0 to 5 rounds, depending on byes by all the players
    ----- they can be phoned/texted in the hour before every single round
    ----- they have a current CFC membership by the time of first pairings
    if you are interested in being a floater player for this event, please apply by email
