VISITING AND OBSERVING MAKSAK CHESS COMPETITION


3rd October ~ Mr. Abdul Aziz asked me to accompany him to New York Hotel to have a look at the MAKSAK [some sort of sports and culture club for government servants] Chess Competition for National level that was in progress. This was like a chance that comes once in a lifetime, not to take part but at least to be able to see matches being played at that level. 










We couldn't stay that long - the players' tables were too far away and we could not do any cheering for the team we supported. It would be nice to have a chess competition for schools, for state level as an example, to be done at a hotel like this.
