    The CFC-FQE dea is not something that can be argued out during a voting members meeting. We had some discussion which provided context and useful information. We have a better idea of the situation of the FQE with regard to the operating grant from the provincial government. Our job in the coming months and weeks is to convey the situation of the CFC to the FQE and to come to an accommodation where we can move forward together. A failure to reach an agreement would be tragic for all parties but most of all for chess in Canada and chess in Quebec.


    The original CFC-FQE deal provided the CFC with a boost when we really needed it and helped us pay FIDE related expenses mostly around Olympiad teams. The CFC's financial position has improved since those days and continues to improve. We've done many things right along the way and some things wrong and this has built (or killed) momentum. We would not have had Canadian Olympic Committee recognition without the CFC-FQE deal. Without the COC we would not have been invited to the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance conference which has led to a huge increase in interest in hosting CFC tournaments including our Canadian Closeds, Zonals, Canadian Open and CYCC. Our approach has to evolve based on these new realities. In the past we had to beg and sometimes pay organizers to organize these events and now we are making multi-year long term arrangements where we have multiple cities interested and making sponsorship offers.

    Hi,

    Since this subject is not simple as the discussion clearly indicates, i suggest that a short committee of 4 people (two from FQE and two from CFC) study all the implications and arrive at a solution to be presented to each Federation for ratification.
    A deadline may be fixed.

    Once the election is finalized and we know for sure who is on the executive we will discuss it and get back to you (hopefully quickly).
