|2014 IIUM Chess Open|
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
The hectic life of attending local chess tournaments for GiLoCatur will begin on this coming weekend after a lay-off for about three months.
On Saturday, GiLoCatur plans to bring GiLoCatur's youngest son, Fahim, to take part in the 6th IIUM Chess Invitational. Having completed both UPSR and UPSRA, Fahim is very enthusiastic to compete in chess tournaments. He has less than three months having eligibility to compete in the Under 12 category.
BUT hey, GiLoCatur has yet registered and pay the tournament fee. Better to be quick since the closing date is until tomorrow ie. Wednesday, 15th October 2014.
Regarding the tournament fee for Under 12 category, GiLoCatur is very happy since it has not been increased since GiLoCatur's children took part in the second edition in 2009. The fee is still twenty Malaysian Ringgits. (Hopefully it will be the same for few more years. Please do not increase it after this entry.)
So, see you at IIUM Gombak this weekend.
After the tourney, GiLoCatur and family will straight balik kampung. On Sunday, GiLoCatur and the children will take part in the Sungai Besar Chess Open sponsored by Din's Frozen & Supplier. The tournament will be managed and handled by Cerdik Catur Enterprise.
GiLoCatur would like to welcome the Malaysin chess players and community to Sungai Besar which is in the Sabak Bernam district and situated in the northern part of Selangor.
