Kasugi Team Chess Championship, 14-15 July 2012

image

The type of event that seems to make sense to most of the local chess community and which has been made possible by Malaysian Chess Federation Deputy President Zuhri Abdullah. Let’s hope for a big turnout from schools and corporations and of course we can expect the usual high turnout by teams made up largely by the Filipino chess trainers based in Singapore hungry for chess that is largely unavailable to them there.

What follows is extracted from the prospectus:

 

1. OBJECTIVE

To organize the biggest chess team event in Malaysia & to develop a chess community that is united, morally upright and progressive in the social and economic context as well as to develop a chess player that adopts a healthy sports culture, and thereby contribute effectively, towards the nation`s unity and development. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE TEAMS REFLECTING A TRUE MALAYSIA SPIRIT

2. REGULATIONS
