So... I guess you've heard that Ottawa has won the right to host the Canadian Youth Chess Championship and the Canadian Open Chess Championship, ...yeah!!!

In the next short little while I'll be telling you... who is now on Team Ottawa - and wow have we grown!!, updates of event info for both the CYCC and the CO, bunch of new sponsors, and lots of new graphics, and yes - some new event promotional ideas too.

So thanks for not chewing my head off and hanging in there... and look out for Team Ottawa!!
