Asian Dragons in Kaohsiung, Taiwan


After catching a welcome few days back home to catch up with family and work (see "A Successful African Seminar for Trainers" http://www.fide.com/component/content/article/1-fide-news/3121-a-successful-african-seminar-for-trainers), I'm off again - this time to be Chief Arbiter at the Asian Dragons Invitational in Kaohsiung, Taiwan from 16-23 August 2008.

The Asian Dragons Invitation, held at the National Sports Training Centre, is an annual event that involves 5 countries - South Korea, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and of course the hosts Chinese Taipei - and has two sections, an Open for players 2100 and below, and Youth Under 16.

So it is a largely developmental event.

Last year Singapore took the bulk of medals and it is expected to be the same this year although a more serious challenge is expected from South Korea and Hong Kong which have made significant progress in the last year.

Until I get there, for more details you will have to contact Dina Chen of the Chinese Taipei Chess Association via email at dinasa1992@yahoo.com.
