    I believe the voting period dates were not adjusted after the cut'n'paste.

    Hello again everyone, we are delighted to confirm that the CFC has approved our bid to run the 2019 Canadian Zonal over the Easter long weekend in Kingston, ON.

    In addition, there'll be regular sections of U2200-U1900-U1600 (each with minimum $1000 1st place), and even a fun we-pay-the-membership U1300/UNR section.

    We're just in the final stages of negotiations and agreements with the downtown Kingston hotel, and with their local Board of Tourism. Once everything is locked in, hopefully within a couple of weeks, we'll open online registrations. Please note that the hotel rate we're getting will be WAY LOWER than what is generally available to the public, but you'll be booking it through us so that we get "credit" towards hall rentals, etc. All of these details will be posted here (and elsewhere) within January.

    Some other highlights include free underground parking, free breakfast, a skittles area that in the evening will also be served and licensed, heated swimming pool.

    And finally, the CHESS: 9 full time-control rounds starting on Thursday evening, running through Good Friday, Saturday, Easter Sunday, to Easter Monday. YES!!!

    Aris Marghetis, EOCA President
    Eastern Ontario Chess Association

    Can foreign players rated over 2200 play?

    Thanks for your question Ted.
    Yes, there is precedent for that.

    However, whereas they can win prize money, foreign players can not win the right to represent Canada at neither the World Cup nor the Continental.
    Those prizes would slip to the next best Canadian, as would the associated travel subsidies.

    I believe only two non-Canadians have played in a Canadian Closed - Robert Wade (New Zealand/UK) in 1947, and Danny Kopec (USA) in 1984.

    I think any foreign players in the Closed would have to at the very least be living in Canada at the time of the event, and would probably have to be approved on a case by case basis.

    As it is a Zonal tournament probably some FIDE rules applies too.
