Sunday, 13th January 2013 ~ The chess competition was organized by the school's Chess Club at the school hall. It was only the second week of school session which was quite early actually but then we had not much choice. One reason is the district level competition will be held very soon, before the Chinese New Year. At the same time, we are desperately trying to get new chess players for the school.

Students' participation was not that good, in fact the least number of participants in the history so far. I would worry as this was not a good sign. The number of chess players seemed to be decreasing each year despite the effort that had been put, such as by having Chess Clinic last year.

The committee members have now to think of ways on how to attract more people to play chess in school. But we will have to prepare for the upcoming MSSD tournament first.
