Archives for the month of: February, 2013

I regret to inform you that I will no longer be running the Ontario Girls Chess Championship. The OGCC has been a great success for the past 10 years and has received a tremendous amount of support. We have had an amazing turn out of girls participating each year with a record number of 146 participants in 2012.  I sincerely hope that girls’ involvement in chess will continue to climb. I will be posting information regarding the possibility of someone else running OGCC 2013  and I encourage you all to continue to participate in this great event among others.


To recall memories of the past OGCCs, the website will be kept for a while. Please click here.

Although there are two more months until the Simultaneous Exhibition given by IM Aman Hambleton, half of the spots are already reserved by chess enthusiasts.
Reserve yours today!
Please see chesstalk post.
Aman has arrived Reykuavik, Iceland today, participating in Reykjavik Open 2013.  It is easy to follow the results here.  We wish him all the best and bring home another GM (Grand Master) norm.

One of our teachers, WCM Yelizaveta Orlova is also participating in the same tournament. Wish her all the best too.

Congratulations to Aidan winning the Second Grand Prix on February 3. There were 43 players in U8 group.
Harry came second (Tied for First) in the U12 group.
Many of our club members also had good results. Please see link.
