NAG 2012 - The First Day

The first day of NAG or Malaysian National Age Group was over. Three rounds had completed. GiLoCatur is so tired that GiLoCatur just woke up from a three-hour sleep after having dinner and Maghrib prayer.

GiLoCatur and the children arrived at the tournament hall at around 10.00am. GiLoCatur was a bit surprised to find out that the perimeter of the tournament hall was packed and crowded with more than 400 participants and their parents as you can see at the following photo gallery.

GiLoCatur is happy with the seating arrangement. It is comfortable and nicely organized; NOT cramped and crowded.

Both players and parents were so eager to enter the tournament hall. After checking the pairings the players could not wait to sit at their tables to begin their 2012 NAG chess competition. While taking the above picture, GiLoCatur and the children were at the upper level. We waited for a while before checking the pairings.

The above three pictures show both players and parents were looking at the board numbers.  Thumbs up to the organizing committee for putting up the age group section or location.
