This event, held on 26/02/2000, was the second of its kind, the first of which was held in January 1999.
We were very please to see an increase of more than 8 teams this year, up from the 44 from the last. On behalf of the entire BBCC Chess Club Committee, we would like to thank all the participants, teachers, parents and helpers. Special thanks must be given to a parent who donated S$200.00 to the Bukit Batok CSC for this event. Finally, many thanks also to the principal and staff of Bukit Batok Secondary for being so helpful and cooperative.
There were some changes to the working structure as well as some other changes in this event compared to the first one. All these changes were made with the intent of improving over our efforts from last year. Please send your suggestions to Feedback-Feb Team Event so we can keep on improving. Thank you!
Despite our efforts to make this event run like a "well-oiled piece of machinery", problems did occur.
Some of these could have been avoided, like familiarizing with the rules beforehand, attending captain's meeting and keeping to stated closing dates. Problems involving Arbiter's decision are more tricky. Players can help us by cooperating with the Chief Arbiter. We also admit to having some logistic difficulties that delayed our planned schedule. The main reason is due to the unfamiliar venue at Bukit Batok Secondary School, as it was the first time we used the place.
We hereby apologise for any inconveniece caused to any players or spectators. Thank you all for your support and do hope to see you again next year. We assure you that we are committed to bringing you only the best playing conditions.
