WGM needed in Montreal!


Today I got this message from Bernard Ouimet of the Championnat de Montreal, which will take place on the 11-12-13 September:

"You know a Female Grand Master at Chess (WGM)? Tell her we have a plane ticket and free lodging for her. We need the participation of a female Grand-Master to promote chess for Canadians, Quebec and Montreal women. We also have a free visit to the Zoo and to the biggest amusement park in Canada. We have about 350$US for her small expenses also"



There are also three women prizes in the lower sections of play. These prizes are over and above the total guaranteed prize fund of 5 000 $. Those extra prizes are offers by Goddesschess.

I congratulate both the Championnat de Montreal and Goddesschess for this excellent initiative!

    Mathieu,

    We from the Montreal Open Chess Championship will make an official invitation to our World Champion to participate in 2010 with all expenses paid. We all have the same dream!

    In 2009 the agenda did not work.
