How to Compete

The CNSC is an invitational event for the top 52 players who qualify according to a qualification system (QS) maintained by the Canadian Committee. As described in the QS, competitors must play a minimum number of games during a qualification period (QP), be Canadian citizens or permanent residents and be members in good standing of NASPA. One place goes to defending champion Adam Logan, the next 47 places are awarded based on peak ratings, and four places may be available in two qualifying tournaments.

Regardless of how you wish to qualify, you must register by making sure that John Chew receives your $75 entry fee no later than March 31st. You may pay by cash, cheque or INTERAC e-Transfer, but not PayPal or credit card. Cash and cheque payments may be made by mail (9 Fulton Avenue, Toronto ON M4K 1X6) or in person (at the Toronto SCRABBLE Club, the Dallas Open or the WCWCWC). If you are not sure whether or not you will qualify, please pay by cheque, so that your cheque can be destroyed or returned if you do not qualify.
