  1. I want to send a cheque for my entry fee. How do I make my cheque payable and where do I mail it??

    I suppose that I should get in the habit of checking the CFC for upcoming tournaments. By the time I did so, the early bird rate already expired. I am still in the habit of relying on chesstalk for news as to upcoming tournaments.

    1. Hi Doug,
      You can mail entry payable to Annex Chess Club, 459A Bloor St W, Toronto, ON, M5S 1X9.

      I’m still a little confused by the advertising requirements on Chesstalk. Last I checked, there was a fee and also some kind of requirement to post results exclusively on that site.

      Best,
      Marcus
