From the parking garage, make your way down to street level via the stairs or elevator, and walk left (west) along Chatham Street to the first corner, which is McDougall Avenue.

We have 204 entries for this years CYCC which is set to start in just 34 days.  We had 125 entries last year by this same date.  Last year saw 155 or so entries in June and a very few in July to finish with 186 entries if my memory is correct and it probably is plus or minus two.

We have 81 entries for the Canadian Open including three GMs and two IMs and three FMs.  I am trying to get one more GM.

We have 230 entries for NAYCC which is a little more than two months away.
