  1. Ferdinand had the following additional things to say as well

    "This tournament consistently draws over 60 players year after year. Players from Buffalo who are not members of the CFC may just pay the tournament fee if they wish not to be a CFC Member. Also, the Canadian Open Chess Championship 2010 is going to happen in downtown Toronto in July. "

  2. Could not be at most difficult time for me - except if it was a week before... Marijan

  3. And just another note for those that are
    planning their tournament participation. The next Main Place Mall tournament is a week earlier, on April 10th, since the normal week (April 17th) is the week of the U.S. Scholastic Chess tournament and several local players are participating in that.
