    Whats the current situation?
    - First place finishers in CYCC get X amount from CFC for their trip for the world's..
    - second-third place?
    - Kids that participated in CYCC, did not place in top...

    1. As a player, as long as prizes and conditions are guaranteed (are they?), I would be interested to play simply because of the Canadian Champion title. As someone reviewing the bid, I am skeptic...

    Just a few points, going from major to minor.

    With all due respect..this seems impossible.

    From the limited information provided in this thread, this GO Membership seems like an improvement. Something that needs agreements to be signed used to be up for a vote and discussion though, in the...

    It seems to me, there wont be a vote by the voting members on this bid? Is it possible to see the bid details, ie prize fund, location, conditions for IMs/GMs (are CFC handbook laws being followed...
  6. I am of the same opinion. I would add that we...

    I am of the same opinion. I would add that we rarely have a vote to elect 7 executives as well, because there is no competition.
    I see my role as a voting member in 1. participating in discussions...
  7. No, it doesn't work like that. There was no way...

    No, it doesn't work like that. There was no way to express displeasure at the voting booth because there was no competition. There was no option to abstain either, as far as I remember. I think the...
  8. I would be interested.

    I would be interested.
  9. I think a better statement to those scrambling...

    I think a better statement to those scrambling players would be 'no exemptions or exceptions' will be granted period'.
  10. I think heads of delegations (U16 Olympiad, WYCC,...

    I think heads of delegations (U16 Olympiad, WYCC, WCCC) would be very knowledgeable people and should be on the committee.

    Just numbers. My work schedule in Uruguay:

    8am-1:20pm, then lunch, then last minute preparation; round 3pm ~6 hours. work 6-10pm with dinner in between ~3 hours = 9 hours per day
    9x50 (average...

    I have done on-site coaching 3 times now, and participated over the internet for some of my students over the years as well.. On-site is without a doubt much better for the kids. Even without...

    Yes of course, but its still nice to get them to admit it in public once in a while.
  14. So the executive can vote on such a...

    So the executive can vote on such a matter?..without even consulting the possible team members?
  15. I agree with Michael Barron about the importance...

    I agree with Michael Barron about the importance of establishing a youth committee. "As it stands now - we're simply unprepared to make any informed decision on these important topics.
    " -...

    It seems to me, the FIDE ethics committee denying the appeal in the manner they did was a surprise to everyone - that certainly could be avoided. No precedent was created that bullying of players by...
  17. Perhaps Kovalyov could have done more to fight...

    Perhaps Kovalyov could have done more to fight injustice, but nevertheless a huge fail by the CFC at representing him. Here in Ahmadabad at the technical meeting they mentioned the recent case while...
  18. possible voting?

    possible voting?

    I find it a weird situation when the potential Olympiad participants support the suggested proposals, and CFC governors do not.

    I think the whole point is to avoid subjective criteria, and replace all with mathematics..a "very rapidly improving junior" is subjective. Also, I do agree its important to send the strongest...

    Aris, but the juniors are already given preference, with the extra points they get for being younger than 23. The number could be changed from 5 to 6 or 7 maybe, but I personally like it the way it...

    A low number like 10 games allows people to sit on their high ratings which might have been achieved a long time ago, thus not showing their current level (which usually deteriorates without...

    I agree with Michael and Ilia, only CFC and FIDE rated events should be taken into account. Events like Dearborn, not FIDE rated, are obviously an exception - almost all high level tournaments in US...

    I agree with Garland, I think it would be best to revisit this bid at the next meeting.
    Regarding the idea of holding the CYCC in March - this would solve a lot of problems. Its a risk though, since...

    Lets say a player with a 1948 rating comes back to tournament chess after 5 years. If he chose to start with a provisional rating, his rating would stay at 1948, but the k-factor for his games would...
