    Report on Motions:

    6.1 National Appeals Committee Rules Revisions
    Motion moved by Aris Marghetis, Seconded by Hal Bond

    Motion to change CFC Handbook Articles 1206 & 1246, regarding the appeals deposit. This change is to reflect that most events now have an appeals deposit of at least $100, and also that most people now use more modern payment methods. The proposed effective date of these changes is September 3rd, 2019.

    Current Article 1206:

    All appeals must be accompanied by a $35.00 fee, to be refunded to successful appellants. [see Motion 85-20; August 1985, p. 1-20]

    Current Article 1246:

    A person appealing to the NAC must write to the CFC Business Office stating his intention to appeal, and enclosing the $35.00 fee. [ref: Motion 85-20; GL#1-20]

    to be replaced by:

    Proposed Article 1206:

    All appeals must be accompanied by a $100 fee, the appeals deposit. This will be refunded to successful appellants. In addition, if the NAC judges that a rejected appeal was made in reasonable very good faith, then the NAC may decide to refund to that appellant.

    Proposed Article 1246:

    A person appealing to the NAC must contact the CFC Office by email or letter, stating his/her intention to appeal, and arrange his/her $100 appeals deposit with the CFC Office.

    Motion 6.2 Change Deadline for Women’s Olympiad Team (Drkulec / Dénommée)
    Pierre Dénommée is online now)
    The Chess Federation of Canada shall modify the deadlines for the Women's team so that the results of the 2020 and 2022 Canadian Women's Closed Championship to be held in Kingston on the Easter weekend can be taken into account. In general this means that the calculation will be done 90 to 100 days before the start of the Olympiad, immediately after the tournament is concluded.
