After seeing all the bright young kids at the Canadian Open, I am starting a new initiative for juniors in chess. Instead of Xmas gifts, birthday gifts, etc., I will be asking friends to donate funds (ie $5, $10), which I will then send out to at least one junior each year. Selection will be based not only on achievement, but participation, consistency, amongst other criteria. The junior must be Canadian, either gender.
I will keep everyone updated throughout the process. I am hoping to receive some funds by the end of this year (since my birthday passed months ago).
Suggestions/nominations will be considered as well.
If you would like to know more, feel free to send me an email anytime.
Go Canadian Juniors!
