Planning for 2018:

Dates: Friday May 11 - Saturday May 12.

A committee of teachers and parents is considering the possibility of moving the Championship back to May: Friday May 11 - Saturday May 12.

The major question is whether students - especially Grade 12 - in IB or AP courses may attend.

Also under consideration is the possibility of expanding to three days, whether Thursday through Saturday, or Friday through Sunday.

We hope to raise funds to cover all tournament expenses:

We need to purchase equipment.

We need to pay honoraria to expert arbiters.

We'd like to hold a reception to honour this year's teachers and parents, and to honour Champions from the last 49 years!

We'd like to help teachers and parents bring students from all over Ontario

Prize Fund

The entry fee is $50 / player. This is paid by the player's student council. The record attendance from 1972 is 245 players. If we reach our goal of beating this record, the entry fees will total over $12 000. We want this to go back to the players in a record prize fund!
