I am leading the organising committee for the Seniors and liaising with SCF via Mr Leonard Lau. We've looked at the possibility of forming the teams to play on July 20, which coincides with the International Chess Day.
Here we are searching for seniors 40 years and over to join the ranks in a friendly match against the current junior players up to 22 years ( to allow the NSmen and 1st year undergrads to play). The result is not really important but mainly the event focuses on bringing back some of our past top players in their younger years to return to chess-playing, after work and family commitments are attended to. Hopefully we may yet rejuvenate the interest of these seniors to form teams to take part in the Inter-Team competitions and help garner sponsorships to make it colourful and vibrant for the chess scene, which sadly is devoid of substantial participation from the seniors.
So here I'd like to name the possible candiates and if you're reading your name here, do your bit to mark July 20 for this event.
