Parking Warning Ticket - what should I do?

Lansdowne Centre has a 3 hours maximum parking rule. In rare occasions, you may receive a Warning Ticket when you park for full day. DO NOT IGNOR IT, you will be fined if you violate the parking rule for 3 or more times. We have a special agreement with the Lansdowne Centre for full day parking. Please bring us your Warning Ticket(s) on-site, we will make a copy and arrange to void it from the Lansdowne parking violation database.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Go through this section (FAQs) first. If you cannot find an answer here, you are welcome to contact us by email at tournaments@chess2Inspire.org, we usually reply within 24 hrs.

I already registered, why do I need to check in?

Chess is a game play by 2 players. We will only pair you to an opponent when we know that you are on site. This eliminates the frustration of players sit and wait for their opponent that may never show. If you are late, check in as soon as you arrive, you will not be paired in any round before you check in.

What is a chess rating?

A chess player's rating is a calculated numerical estimate of his/her strength, based on his/her results in tournament play against other players. It is calculated and maintained by chess federations/organizations (CFC & CMA in Canada). This is a 'rated' tournament, the organizer will submit results to CFC and/or CMA, which carries out the calculations and publishes the results. If you do not have a rating currently, you will have one after this tournament.

If I lose a game, do I still play in the next round?

You will play in all of the rounds even if you lose some of your games, so stay and play on.

Can I skip one or more of the rounds?

You can request for 'byes' (not playing in one or more rounds). For example, a bye in round 3 means you will not play in round 3. Players must inform the Tournament Director if s/he is not able to play in any round(s). Player not show up for any round without notice will be forfeited from the tournament, and requires a legitimate reason and the Tournament Directors approval to re-enter the tournament. Check the 'Tournament Rules' section for details.

Do I need a membership to enter the event?

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
