The first MCF chess tournament for the year 2011 is the National Age Group or simply known as NAG. When it will be held? It is scheduled to start on 12th March and end on 15th March during the first midterm school break, 12th to 20th March. Where is the venue for the tournament? The detail is not known yet but it will be in Kuala Lumpur.
GiLoCatur started to involve in NAG for its 2008 edition that being held at the OCM Indoor Sports Arena. The 2009 edition was held at the Pearl Point Shopping Mall. Only Fikri and Anis participated in the two NAG editions then. Fahim started to participate in NAG in last year edition held at Seri Pinang Hall, Penang.
For sure, Insya Allah, GiLoCatur will be there at the 2011 NAG to watch Fikri, Anis and Fahim playing in their respective age groups. All of them will play in new age group category for the 2011 edition. While both Fikri and Fahim will be in Boys U16 and U10 category respectively, Anis Fariha will be in Girls U14 category.
GiLoCatur hopes that the 2011 NAG will be both nationally- and FIDE-rated. GiLoCatur also hopes that the tournament will attract more and more participants and from each state in the country.
So, start practicing and making the preparation from today boys and girls!
