    It looks like I lost my permission for the outgoing and incoming boards, but I would like to nominate Michael Lo to remain as a Kalev Pugi Trustee (he has indicated he is willing to stay).

    In order to compensate for the fact that no bursaries were awarded last year, despite the CFC receiving applications, we decided to award 3 bursaries to some of last year applicants. The winners are...

    Lyle, I know it includes liability insurance, but am not quite sure about D&O. Fortunately, I never had to use either :)

    Are they asking for a minimum number of players though? If I recall well, last time the CFC wanted to go ahead with a deal, the terms were completely out of reach (something like 2000 members willing...

    I would be curious to see what are the exact benefits of all options.
    However, I firmly believe we should join a site that has already proven its worth. I'm thinking about Chess.com, ICC or Premium...

    Not sure how that would extend to the CFC, but the FQE has very good insurance (I think they are available to all members of the Quebec Leisure and sports association). What is great about it is that...

    As far as I am concerned, I would not penalize Vancouver (or any other city) for having less entries. The CYCC is a great way to promote chess in a region. But the bid should at least give the same...

    They guarantee the CFC a minimum of $15,000 from the entry fees, and a maximum of $20,000.

    That is a huge difference from the usual $150 per entry. In 2014, the Montreal CYCC raised about $45 000...

    A few (quick) comments :

    Windsor: The organizers seemed to have spent a lot of time on this bid and the overall plan is promising. However, the CYCC was already organized there last summer and it...

    I hadn't given it much thought, but it seems like an interesting position, so I will accept the nomination.

    A very interesting bid (CYCC/CO). A few comments :

    - The idea of renting the residence is interesting, although I am not convinced all the rooms would be rented.
    - Quite a few of the numbers seem...

    Thanks Hal for the report. This summer will be extremely interesting!

    I think 9 rounds for the Zonal will be more than enough, and the new time control is really great news in my opinion.

    Yes, the plan is to allow remote players into live events (such as the Quebec Open), at least as it is presented by the FQE in its last magazine.

    I think both locations have their pros and cons.

    The biggest problem for Le Chantecler is the accessibility of the location. It's not too hard for Montrealers to get there, if they have a car...
