    Has this information been shared with potential Canadian players ? Online or Hybrid, etc ? I suspect the second weekend will overlap the Canadian Zonal events.

    The CFC has a completely new Website. Our Webmaster, Don Parakin, is continuing to bring over features from the old site. I'm not aware of any broken links. You should simply report any issues to the...

    Voting on the Motion has already began, so I'm not going to suggest any change. My interpretation is that it is a Straw Ballot, which will be used by the various parties to determine further...
  6. Understanding the Motion

    OK. Here is my present understanding of the vote -- which is kind of like a straw poll

    Vote NO
    a) if you have already decided that the President should remain in office
    or
    b) if you don't know...

    FIDE Americas has made for the possible allowance of players qualified for the KO event to play in a different country than their own, with the permission of both nations. Obviously, quarantine rules...

    Can someone explain the motion to me ?

    If I understand this correctly we are being asked whether a Special Meeting should be called if the Noritsyn call for a meeting can be legally presented ? Am...

    It is my opinion that the first time I saw the full agenda was on this Forum, although it may have been in the Executive/Directors Forum (I'm not sure, now) - which would seem to satisfy point 2....

    Please note that the Continental 3 day Qualifier appears to be open to anyone and will be online (not Hybrid) potentially with "fast" games.

    The 128 player KO is Hybrid.

    I don't believe Victor...

    In this particular instance, while a 5% threshold had been met to a call a meeting, the CFC Executive determined that the call for the removal of the President was illegal as it was lacking in 2...

    Victor. Can you put into plain English what a written requisition is ? Vlad informed the rest of the Executive he would be calling a Special Meeting, as the 5% threshold had been met.

    I don't think it's your opinion Vlad is referring to, but perhaps your ability to do and not do things behind the scenes on this Forum. [Not my own opinion]

    For a number of years the CFC Business Office (perhaps with the permission of the Executive) apparently "bent" the rules for issuing of taxable receipts. However, it should be noted that by 2010, we...

    I have brought this to the attention of the Secretary (no answer yet). I suspect it was closed once Patricia Gamliel received a majority of possible votes -- however, it's not clear what next steps...

    I think the logic is that the "Motion to Enlarge the Executive" will be considered a valid "election" if the No side wins the "Appeal to Overturn the Chair's Ruling"

    I have asked the President to delay the vote for FIDE Representative, while everything plays out that is now going on "behind the scene". It is impossible to vote intelligently at the moment.

    If we are really going through with a vote to increase the Board, I would move that we increase it by two Directors-at-Large, instead of 1. This would possibly alleviate the concerns of the President...
