Red Dumuk (09292396555; 09258092393)
Kasparov Chess Foundation Asia Pacific (KCFAP) Director for Philippines Red Dumuk had announced the deadline for the March 26 KCF Young Talents Rapid Chess Chess Championships at the well-appointed Alphaland City Center in Makati is on March 24.
Interested boys and girls aged Under 8 years old, U10, U12, U14 and U18 can register with asst. tournament director Alex Dinoy (email address: firstname.lastname@example.org; mobile no. 09183705750). Entry fee is P100.
Only 300 of the pegged 1,000 slots remain. Once the limit is reached, no more entry will be accepted.
Meanwhile, pre-registration for the other KCFAP event aimed at giving the National Chess Federation of the Philippines' grassroots program supported by Philippine Sports Commission a shot in the arm —the March 27 Chess in Education (CIE) Training for Teachers-- has been ongoing.
Chess teachers (in or out of the school system) can list up with Dumuk (email address: email@example.com; mobile no. Sun-09258092353, Smart-09292396555 or Globe-09270534040) until March 23.
Payment of the P1,000 registration fee may be made at the venue. CIE is limited to 200 participants.
The Department of Education, along with the NCFP and Alphaland Corporation, stand as partners of the KCFAP in the twin initiatives celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Kasparov Chess Foundation.
The Philippines is one of the only three countries (Myanmar and Indonesia are the others), aside from Guam where the trio of Kasparov Chess Foundation President Michael Khodarkovsky, KCFAP Director Ignatius Leong and KCFAP Projects Manager are visiting.
Owing to the upscale character of the rapid championships and CIE venue, all participants are enjoined to observe the dress code—only shirts with collar, trousers (no shorts) and shoes (no sandals or slippers) are to be worn.
