2007 Canadian Open
Usually scheduled around July 1 - Canada Day. The Canadian Checker Association doesn't plan to host a 2007 Tournament but announced plans for a 2008 Canadian Open.
2008 Canadian Open
Leroy Adams, President of the Canadian Checker Association announced the next Canadian Open will be held in his home city of Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2008. Leroy has a great desire to build Canadian checkers, has much community support, and plans to get sponsors to build a large prize fund for the coming event. Leroy wants the Canadian Open to be near Canada Day (July 1); therefore, the tentative dates - Leroy is pretty firm about them - will be Sunday thru Tuesday, June 29, 30th and July 1st, 2008. Seven rounds will be of 2 games (1 opening) using the 156 openings to allow participants to play more opponents; present plans are to score by games - 2 points for a win and 1 for a draw. 3 rounds on Sunday, 3 rounds on Monday, and finish on Tuesday morning. This will leave the rest of Canada Day to enjoy the Winnipeg festivities.
Put it in your calendar and plan to attend and support Canadian Checkers. There should be plenty of interest since the first prize of $2,000.00 is promised.
