    Excellent points Victor and also by Hal. Yes, contacting the players in advance, then they should have enough time. I think it would be very unlikely someone will have a Visa denied. I will...

    I disagree. I know of one case this year, where someone did not appeal their case, because they were told that it was frivolous and they would not get their money back. So perhaps it is relevant in...

    A very impressive bid for the 2020 Canadian Seniors. I can't wait to go to Halifax.
  4. Sounds like a good idea to me in principle, as it...

    Sounds like a good idea to me in principle, as it would certainly encourage participation in the Women's closed and also help select the best team. However, 2020 will be in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russian...
  5. Proposed Article 1206 - I am not a lawyer or a...

    Proposed Article 1206 - I am not a lawyer or a wordsmith, but can we change 'reasonable very good faith' to just 'good faith'? Good faith clauses are very common in legal contracts. Not sure why we...

    Strange that the website as directed from the CFC website http://www.chessfest.ca/ for Kitchener says Over 60 section. I would hate to go there and be too young. lol. The website also says 2018 so...

    That is great news Fred. I have never played out East before. Also updating the CFC website would be good. On the website for the AB Senior it says "The winner receives a travel grant of up to...

    My gap is 131 points (2364-2233) between CFC and FIDE. A lot has to do with where I play. Playing in Las Vegas, I always lose lots of FIDE points playing underrated juniors, and this is not CFC...

    I love the FIDE over 50 events. Both the team and individual. Nice to play players close to your own age. In Canada, I just do not think we have the critical mass to make these tournaments viable,...

    I would be against the Canadian Closed and the Canadian Seniors being held at the same time. I never saw the need for a Canadian Seniors over 50, since as Evgeny showed, over 50 players can still...

    The only downside is someone wants to play in 2 concurrent events, since they are not mutually exclusive. In any case, sounds like a great idea and I too look forward to it.

    I will check with my colleagues in Alberta. I don't suppose there is any rule to Calgary hosting the Canadian Senior 2 years in a row? Or maybe the Canadian Closed. Unfortunately, it is very...

    I agreed to run to replace Garland Best. He seems to have a one year term, so it looks like I was nominated for the wrong position?

    I would be willing to do either, so I will leave it up to Hugh as to which one he wants to serve on.
  15. I accept the nomination.

    I accept the nomination.

    As the organizer of the Banff Open, I plan to use the CFC site as soon as the ACA (Alberta Chess Association) approves my 2018 tournament during its budget meeting. The $20 that Chesstalk will...

    I am not really sure how the CFC could have done anything more than they did. Hal Bond had prepared the protest, but without Anton testifying, the CFC did not have a case. As for the FIDE officials...

    This looks like a very strong bid and I cannot remember when it was last held in Saskatchewan. In the letter of support from the Regina Hotel Association, it says "We are delighted to support the...
