    If I am not mistaken, Hart House is from Feb 18-20.

    Can this Burlington active defer by another week ?

    I don't think that is gonna work for me. I checked the CFC and chesstalk website in deciding when to book the date. Didn't see anything so I went ahead.

    The venue is already booked. If it is a conflict, that is unfortunate, but we did check the CFC tournament listings first.
    But now the players have a choice, regular or active. err...I mean Quick.

    Hi all, I have had enquiries about food being served at this tourney as we did last time. Lunch is not being provided this time. It is being reflected by the lower entrance fee. I suspect that the slighty higher entry fee, which included the soup and sandwich lunch buffet, was a little too pricey for some, maybe I'm wrong. Any of the players who came to this tourney in November, was the food good AND worth the slightly higher entry fee? I have removed the extra expense of the lunch to try and attract more players. By the way, I have talked with a certain grandmaster who has told me that he may be interested in playing in my tournament AGAIN. Time is ticking for the early bird registration discount. When the time has passed, the time has passed.

    Hi all,

    The entries are starting to roll in. Please note that we have added another section compared to our previous tourney in Nov 2016. Same venue. I hear that the place is getting new wallpaper or carpet, cant remember which. Time is ticking for early bird discount.

    Your move.

    In the past, occasionally, I have put surprise prizes that were not previously mentioned or advertised in my flyers for my tournaments. Sort of a thank you bonus were willing to play in my tournament. Just saying.

    A little bird at the hotel told me that the restaurant will be open until 1pm. I am trying to arrange special express lunch service for anyone who is interested. It will be based on prepaid lunch. Will be getting sample menu for express lunch service soon. Stay tuned.
