TSMFL : Chess by candle light

Recently at the Sasol Tsogo Sun Moves for Life Chess Tournament in Secunda scholastic innovation came to the fore.

This was the biggest Chess Tournament in the Secunda/Embalenhle area ever held with a staggering 638 children participating between Friday 17 April and Saturday 18 April at the Lillian Ngoyi Centre in Secunda.

With matters well underway the area experienced “load-shedding” which plunged the venue into darkness. Undeterred, the organizers had come prepared and produced candles to ensure that there were no disruptions to the all important games.

The Sasol Tsogo Sun Moves for Life Chess Tournament in Secunda was a resounding success and it is envisaged that this event will become a regular fixture on the domestic Chess scene in the future. Well done to TSMFL Regional Coordinator and Trainer Maritjie Jansen van Vuuren, her team and sponsors Sasol for staging this successful event.
