Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Oct 21, 2016 - About:
OHSCC has started this campaign to raise funds to cover all tournament expenses. The First Ontario High School Chess Championship was held in 1968. In 2017 they are celebrating the 50th year of the OHSCC. The entry fee is $50 / player. This is paid by the player’s student council. The record attendance from 1972 is 245 players. If they reach their goal of beating this record, the entry fees will total over $12 000. They want this to go back to the players in a record prize fund!
In order to make the dream of OHSCC, $50,000 is needed. This will pay for the following expenses: to purchase equipment, to pay honoraria to expert arbiters, to hold a reception to honour this year’s teachers and parents, and to honour Champions from the last 49 years, to help teachers and parents bring students from all over Ontario, arranged for a discount with Porter Airlines, they hope to subsidize the cost for motor coaches from other cities, they would like to help teachers and parents with the cost of hotel accommodation for 3 nights, for the long 2 days of the Championship.
