    Go transit started to run trains on the Barrie line on weekends too. Check the schedule http://www.gotransit.com/timetables/...18/Table65.pdf
    Looks that it could be useful going home to Toronto or Barrie. Coming to Aurora you'll need a bus.

    There is no open section. Ontario organizers don't understand what an open section is. An open section is unrated up to 3000+ rating. Quebec organizers understand that pretty easily.
    Paul Leblanc from BC Open understand this simple thing.

    We have already discussed that with you. Though you are welcome to sponsor our Open section and then it will have your conditions if you'll meet ours :)

    You shall learn how to count. This Open section will happen 14th time with various number of players in Aurora. While we can not claim yest as BJ does "100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong", we're slowly moving towards those numbers :)

    But how easy is it to get there from the new subway station in Vaughan?

    Also, somebody can start having tournaments at York now that it has a subway station.
