Saturday, July 7th, 2012

The 49th Annual Canadian Open will be held in Victoria, BC at the Hotel Grand Pacific located in Victoria's Inner Harbour steps away from tourist attractions, ferry connections, and the BC legislature. $15,000 in prizes is guaranteed for this nine round Swiss held over 6 days.

Come enjoy Victoria for your 2012 summer chess vacation. The six day schedule makes it easy to travel with perhaps an extra day or two to be a tourist. And if you've always wanted to play a GM one on one, this year's event offers you the opportunity to bid on a first round GM, IM, or WGM pairing!

There will be a welcome Barbecue on July 7th from 4-6pm at Fisherman's Wharf Park (walking distance from the Hotel Grand Pacific). Join us for burgers, casual chess games and a meet and greet. Barbecue $10 adults $5 children<12 Other food choices nearby. Casual chess free. Spectators free.

For more information on side events including the BBQ, simuls, blitz, and more, see the Schedule page.
