Olympic Team Fundraiser Active

Aug. 16, 2008


A 5 round Active Tournament with all entry fees going to support the Canadian Olympic Chess Team.



16 players participated in this event and an additional 4 people helped out by donating to the cause. In total, $245 was raised for the Olympic Team.


Glen Morin was the clear winner, leading througout the tournament. Lorne Hunt took the 2nd place trophy, losing only to Glen.

Jackie Brien played in her first tournament in a while vowing to shake off the rust and did so handily, taking the U1600 trophy.


Donations were made by Harry Moore, Howard Wu, Jim Foley, Brian Raymer, and Lynn Stringer.


Expenses were covered by Roger Patterson and Paul Leblanc.



Thanks to all those who came, who helped out, and who donated.


Final standing are given below as well as a few pictures.


Our TD: Mark S. Dutton, IA.
