    Thanks Vlad. Just trying do my part in promoting Chess in Canada.

    We do hope players from Windsor will come and play in our Oakville Winter Open. I spoke to Rohan's mom and she said probably they will come alongside with other strong juniors like Adam G and others. It will be awesome if Windsor's top players are joining the fierce competition.

    We would like to invite you to come and play as well as it is an honor for our maiden tournament to have you as President of CFC in our tournament.

    Thanks so much.

    Cheers

    I am an enthusiastic supporter of Elevate My Chess and look forward to their submitting a Mississauga bid for the 2020 CYCC and Canadian Open with the help of sports tourism contacts that I made at the Canadian Sport Tourism Association Expo in Halifax and subsequently forwarded to them. Unfortunately the thread was in the wrong location and I have moved it to English Chat.
