2007 CYCC: Draw for free museum passes

Several of Ottawa's great tourist attractions are kindly supporting the 2007 Canadian Youth Chess Championship, donating free individual and family passes that will be given to participants.

The attractions include:
Thanks to these institutions for their generosity! The attractions are either within walking distance or a short drive away from the tournament venue, the Fairmont Chateau Laurier.

All told, the organizers have several dozen passes to give away, and will do so at the event through several draws, with pools determined by the dates when players registered. Players who register before June 15 will have better chances of winning passes than those who register after June 15.

The 2007 CYCC will be held July 3 to 6 in Ottawa to determine boy and girl national champions in their age groups that will represent Canada this fall at the 2007 World Youth Chess Championship in Turkey. For more information on the 2007 CYCC and to register online, please visit
