    On motion 21-F as per the President's instruction the phrase "before the start of the championship" has been inserted to remove any ambiguity. Thus:

    1058. Entries:

    The Canadian Junior Champion shall receive free entry but must advise the CFC Business Office and organizers of his intention to play no later than 20 days before the start of the Championship. (ed. addition shown underscored for clarity)

    All eligible players who may qualify pursuant to Clause 1053(c) and who wish to participate in the Junior Tournament shall notify the CFC Business Office no later than 45 days before the start of the Championship of their intention to participate, enclosing their entry fee of $150.00. The CFC Board of Directors may delegate this function to the tournament organizers. Entries which cannot be accepted because the number exceeds the number of players allowed shall be advised thereof and their entry fee returned to them.

    Players qualifying pursuant to Clause 1053(a) shall send in their entries as soon as is practical after the Provincial Champion is known but in any case no later than three weeks prior to the start of the Junior Tournament. In exceptional circumstances, the CFC Board of Directors can vary the time limits in this Clause.

    Lyle, I was trying to figure out why you said G2 failed when you showed 15-10 in favour. I think you switched the counts up though as you have 10 names listed in favour and 15 listed against.

    With both Motion 2012-E and Motion 2012-A2 having passed, the text of p.1051 will now read:

    A Tournament known as the Canadian Junior Chess Championship hereinafter referred to as the Junior Tournament shall normally be held each year to determine that year's Canadian Junior Champion and consist of 2 sections - Open and Girls. When there are less than eight girls, then the sections shall be combined. The winner of the Junior Tournament will also be the Canadian representative to the World Junior Chess Championship.

    A motion further modifying p.1051 will be on the floor in the Winter Quarterly Meeting. Please contact either Michael Barron or Bob Armstrong if you have any concerns with the text that you would like to see rectified at that time.

    • Playoff
    • Sonneborn-Berger

    Motion 2012-C

    Whereas, philosophically, if not monetarily, all members are of equal importance to the CFC;

    Be it resolved that all CFC members count as a single member equivalent regardless of type;

    Be it further resolved that the number of membership equivalents required for a governorship to be established thus be equal to seventy-five (75) members.

    Motion 2012-D

    [Editorial note: Governors should note that this is essentially a re-introduction of motion 2010-02 (Moved / Seconded Egidijus Zeromskis / Christopher Mallon)) with the sole exception of the removal of the clause dealing with Participating members since this type of membership was ended by a Governor vote shortly after the demise of En Passant magazine)

    It is a constitutional motion since it amends sections of Bylaw One or Bylaw Two]

    The Constitution change:
    "JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP
    9. Any person ordinarily resident in Canada who is under the age of 18, shall be granted a Junior membership or a Junior Participating Membership."

    is replaced with:

    "JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP

    Motion 2012-G-1

    That the CFC Handbook be amended as follows:

    Delete Section 738 (Certificate of Life Master) and replace with:

    Section 738. Rating Categories, Titles and Certificates.

    a) The CFC officially recognizes the following titles, rating classes and CFC rating floors: National Master (2200), National Candidate Master (2000), Class A (1800), Class B (1600), Class C (1400), Class D (1200), and Class E (1000).

    b) To achieve standing for any class or title, the player must:
    i. Have at some point had a published CFC rating above the minimum rating floor for that category or title
    ii. Have in three separate tournaments achieved a norm, which is a performance rating at least 100 points above the rating floor
    iii. For the purposes of these norms, only CFC ratings count, and the player must have played at least five games.
    iv. Matches may not be used as a norm.
    v. An event can be used as a norm for multiple classes - for example, a 2300 performance event can be a norm used by the same player for Class A, National Candidate Master AND National Master.

    c) Certificates. The CFC will provide, free of charge, certificates to those who achieve the title of National Master or any higher title that the CFC chooses to award. Certificates for lower titles or classes are not automatically provided, but may be requested. The CFC Executive is empowered to set a fee for this service not to exceed $10 including shipping.
