    FINALLY, we're rolling live! Here's some highlights:

    - all five sections rated both FIDE & CFC
    - hotel deals include free parking & free breakfasts
    - virtually continuous supply of ice water & coffee
    - easy hotel booking, with your registration, one total payment
    - staying at the event hotel saves $50 off your registration
    - hotel rates through the tournament are unbelievably low
    - total prizes already at $12,750 (based on last year's attendance)
    - direct titles to be won in Women Zonal section (all females welcome)
    - performance titles possible in Canadian Closed section (2200 rating floor)
    - minimum $1000 1st place prize for every section
    - wonderful tournament direction team (and me)
    - superior live broadcast of at least top 4 boards
    - already 3 Canadian GMs have committed

    I'll be at the Ontario Juniors this weekend, in case anyone has questions.
    Otherwise, please feel free to email me: arismarghetis at rogers dot com

    P.S. Always looking to engage "house players", to ensure everyone gets a properly rated game every round, looking especially for local players!

    Thank you, best regards,

    I'll be playing at the RA tonight, if anyone wants to register, or just ask questions.

    I can take payments, but I don't really need them yet, no bills yet to pay anyhow.

    You can also leave me your email address, and I'll directly send you the event flyer.

    Going very well, already over 50 players, and already over 150 hotel room nights.

    Thank you, best regards, Aris Marghetis.

    Hello again, as you might imagine, I'm doing dozens of emails daily for this event. That's fine, I love what we're building, but quite a few families keep insisting on asking for their kid(s) to play up. So just that we're all in sync, I don't do playing up. It's just a personal philosophy, and borne out of respect for the top players, who qualify for the top section. If after you register then your rating rises enough, then of course you'll be moved up. Otherwise, EVERYONE plays at their proven level.

    Respectfully, Aris.

    Just a quick note that byes are available for any round:

    - in the U2200/U1900/U1600 sections, if requested with registration, up to 3 half-point byes, within rounds 1-7
    - all other requested byes will be 0-point (therefore, all Zonal and Closed byes will be 0-point)

    Thanks, Aris.

    (65 players registered, 3 GMs & 2 IMs/WGMs, 182 room nights booked, French translation being posted)

    N.B. the special "pre-registration" deadline for last year's players will expire at midnight tonight. I don't need your money yet, I just want your registration by email. That'll hold the rates for you.


    (search emails from me)


    Thanks, regards, Aris.

    Good morning, if you feel that your name should already be on the "first 90" list above, but it isn't, then it's probably because I had emailed you requesting some last bit of information (i.e. cell number, number of people for free breakfasts, etc). Then that email would be sitting in my "waiting for more information" pile lol. Please reply to that to complete your registration. I will of course honour the pre-March rates if you initiated your registration before March. arismarghetis at rogers dot com

    Smile upgrade...

    Time to upgrade Kenta's title from FM to IM, as it was approved at the end of February.

    To everyone who has registered but not yet paid, and especially so if you're booking a hotel room through our tournament, please note that the first wave of hotel room reservations will be made after this coming weekend. Therefore, please e-transfer me the amount from our registration email thread by Monday, March 9th.

    If you feel you need to send me a security question answer, I recommend TEXT vs. email. If you do so, please start the text with the player(s) name, thanks!

    Thank you, best regards, Aris Marghetis.

    P.S. if you miss this Monday, that's not the end of the world, but rooms will eventually run out (and there's also the increase in prices after the end of March)
