Junior Chess Schedule 2002


Unless otherwise noted, the following tournaments are OPEN to all Junior players at all playing levels. Some events qualify the winner(s) to go on to compete at Provincial or National Championships.




NOTE:            While CFC Membership is no longer required at Junior (i.e. under 20 years) events, it is necessary at any other kind of rated tournament (please see below for details).  

Players under the age of 18 (as of Jan. 1/2002)  who wish to participate in CFC-rated events other than Junior-only tournaments may purchase a membership on-site, either of: 

a)       a Participating Junior Membership ($13 annually). This ensures that the member's name and rating appear on the list(s)on the CFC web site (in addition to their inevitable inclusion in crosstables), and entitles him/her to members' discounts on books and equipment; or

b)       a full Junior membership ($25 annually); in addition to the above also ensures the arrival approximately every 2 months of the worthwhile En Passant magazine on one's doorstep

CFC Membership for players 18 years and older is $45/year and includes En Passant and discounts.
