    Current version looks good to me. Blue and white squares are fine. I also prefer the crisp 4-pointed North American queen you have chosen in the font, to the often fussy 5-pointed Euro queen that...

    Wow, as a non-governor, I can post here. My goodness. Maybe permissions were copied from the Arbiter forum, which I no longer see.

    Times

    At the Annual Meeting forum, I saw deadline times stated as EST. We're used to East-centrism, but why use Standard Time? Shouldn't it be EDST ?

    Congratulations to the ACA. This donation exceeds the total of all donations to the CFC in the 2011-2012 fiscal year. I notice in the CFC Annual Budget, there is no figure (= zero) for 2012-2013...

    Nemesis. Bob and Charlie always draw. Bob always beats Albert. It does not take much! Good example, Egis.

    I agree that Albert might be allowed to have a zero-point bye in the final round if he...

    Excellent example by Egis. Depending on the players and degree of nemesis, it could be a prize advantage to withdraw, even with a zero-point bye, were that allowed.

    I'd say that a "valid reason"...

    I wrote that.

    The idea was to promote chess and the CFC at the same time. I was hoping that every chess set sold in Canada would have a "Passport" in it. It would be left in the leaflet racks...

    COL

    That's like LOL, except to add "Good think I don't eat caviar, because I'm laughing so hard it would be coming out of my nose."

    You have the exact same--and unenlightening--title for two threads on different subjects in close succession.

    I think you need to be careful. Personal freedom is great, but not when it reduces the fulfillment of others. For example, to add an uncompetitive 11-year old to the U18 CYCC not only lessens the...

    AFAIR: Zvonko Vranesic was named Canadian team selector at the 1973 CFC Annual Meeting. He chose Kevin Spraggett, but not D.A. Yanofsky. There was a major kerfuffle, and the CFC Governors (who in...

    A birdie told me that at least one of the members of the Selection Committee is not from Toronto. This is not official. I do not own shares in the CFC.
