    To our Western Canada friends, I would be very interested in discussing possibilities in Alberta & B.C. If anyone wants to email me directly, please feel free!

    I am looking for support for the BC vs Alberta match. It will be held in Vernon in July 2020 and may possibly become an annual event.
    The Vernon Chamber of Commerce was unable to provide any support. Perhaps Kelowna or some other municipal group in the Okanagan
    would like us to bring the event to their city

    What are the particulars? What is the size of the event? Usually you have to submit items up to two years in advance as this is the planning horizon for most tourism bureaus though sometimes they do have some discretion for last minute events.

    As the name implies, the CSTA is about sport tourism. Many, (though not all) Municipalities are willing to support new events that bring people to their cities. The prospect of hotel nights is our biggest attraction. Vernon expressed interest at the Convention last year in Ottawa but I don't think it was the Chamber of Commerce. Maybe this year we can get them in touch with you Paul.

    Details for the BC vs Alberta match and the Vernon Open are on the BCCF website here: http://www.chess.bc.ca/
    The 2020 event will have 60 players and I have a block of 30 hotel rooms. If anyone saved the contact information for the Vernon representative, I could use it.

    Hello Paul, I would also be interested in Vernon contacts, thanks!

    I would start at their website. On first look, I don't recall meeting Vernon tourism officials but I could be wrong on that.
