    For more information, please go to eoca.ca, and scroll down to the entry for:

    Please note that after March 31st, all the entry fees will rise $20.
    Also, all GM/IM/WGM free conditions available until March 31st.

    cost: there are two components to total cost, which we call STAY and PLAY
    players who pay to STAY (4+ nights) at the hotel will pay less to PLAY
    this is because our prime sponsorship is based on hotel room nights

    STAY = FREE double occupancy room (Thursday evening – Monday morning)
    PLAY = FREE entry

    STAY: each room is $120 per night, ALL-IN!
    the most common situations will be:
    1) single occupancy (that “room prime” pays $120 per night)
    2) double occupancy (each “room co-prime” pays $60 per night)
    each room prime/co-prime will be asked for credit card at check-in, for “incidentals”
    extra people, such as parents and partners, cause no extra cost after the $120/night
    N.B. if you’re paying to STAY, don’t forget your $40 discount to pay to PLAY!
    PLAY: all other Zonal players:
    $260 before March 1
    st (less $40 if paying to STAY)

    Hello again, I hope to play in Round 1 of the Kingston Open tonight, and so could receive registrations/payments (BEFORE I start playing my game though lol)

    If you've never attended the new Kingston Opens that Dan Barlow runs, they're a GREAT event for chess friends and families! (I have to travel after Round 1)

    All the best, Aris.

    Hello again, as expected, registrations are coming in faster, another IM and GM in the last 24 hours, WOOHOO!

    But please note though that I am travelling this weekend, and so my email replying might be slower than usual.

    No worries though, anyone who emails me by 11:59:59 pm SUNDAY will get the lower rates from month of March.

    Best regards, Aris.

    Plus two more IMs this weekend. My email has been blowing up, but I'm away for the weekend. I'll catch up everything overnight tonight. People do NOT need to send me money until I have confirmed their actual amount. If you've emailed me, that's enough, I'll get back to you within 24 hours. I've kept some discounted rooms on hold for these most recent registrations. Thanks.

    The hotel has offered me a few more rooms at the special $120 (all-in) rate, and I'm giving them out in the order of emails received first-come first-served.

    I expect the hotel will end their offer this week. Will post registrations as soon as I can catch up on my email, we reached 85 players yesterday, and counting!
