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!
There are expenses to be covered
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.
* We have arranged for a discount with Porter Airlines.
* We hope to subsidize the cost for motor coaches from other cities.
We'd like to help teachers and parents with the cost of hotel accommodation for 3 nights, for the long 2 days of the Championship.
You can join us:
To do all this, we need to raise $50 000.00
