Registration Closes: Saturday, April 22, 2017
Golden Key (unlike most other events run in Canada) takes advance payment through their own online registration. So for this tournament you should register both on this web page, and on the event web page. There is a discounted rate(25$) for Registering before March 1st. It then goes up 5$, and there is a final 5$ increase if you choose to pay at the door rather than any advance payment. Payment through the Golden Key site by the discount date is what actually counts for getting the discount.
Ratings certificates are issued by the CGA(10$) to youths who want them and score more than 3 wins in 5 games. Parents/players should be aware these certificates will correspond roughly to that CGA rank, but one tournament can't match the accuracy of a rating aquired over many tournaments. Of course for youth players ratings get out of date fast anyway; you can't really hope to have anything especially accurate.
Typical attendance has been in the low 30's. Its a great chance for youths to play against and make some friends outside the immediate circle of children they study with regularly!
