Travel day

Less than 24 hrs and we will be flying to Toronto!  Our Flight leaves YYJ at 6:30am which means we make the early run to the airport to arrive at 5:30am.  Our top athletes fly 3 times per year traveling to tournaments each season.  This season some will be traveling on the U.S. Junior Open the following week.

Our players at the CJO this weekend are:
(below, Rachel, Grace, Gavin and Christian in their new CH t-shirts)

1. Grace Thomas - Girls Under 19 (5/8 seed)
2. Matthew Henderson - Boys Under 19 (3/4 seed)
3. Gavin Maxwell - Boys Under 19 (5/8 seed)
4. Kellan O'Neill - Boys Under 17 (not seeded)
5. Christian Yuen - Boys Under 13 (2nd seed)

After arriving in YYZ we are not done our trip.  It is off to pick up our rental car and drive to Niagara-On-The-Lake.  This tournament is being hosted by White Oaks convention centre as it has been for decades!  But truly, I would not want it to be any where else.  The hotel rooms are in the same building as the squash / tennis facility.  Technically you could spend the 4 days not going outside once.

For many years there was nothing to do and no where to walk when you were at the CJO.  Surrounding the Conference Centre was nothing but fields and Highway.  In the past 2 years a massive factory outlet was constructed and now we can shop!  I wandered through the stores last year and there is not really that much there. (At least we have a change of scenery.

I will be posting through the day as we travel to Niagara-On-The-Lake.  So bookmark this blog and come back to see how we are doing!
