members of Gambia Chess Federation (GCF) have recently concluded a fact-finding
and consultative regional tour with its stakeholders. The tour availed the
Chess leadership the opportunity to gather firsthand information on regional
chess structures, challenges and level of awareness of the game at the regions.
President Amadou Jallow led the tour party with 1st and 2nd vice presidents, Habib Mboob and Sasuna Mbye respectively.
Second vice president Sasuna Mbye said the tour was a success, as it has enabled the federation to hear from stakeholders on matters concerning Chess development in the regions. “We had fruitful discussions with them on pertinent issues on the development of the game, and has further helped us to know the areas to prioritise in our next year program of activities,” he added.
He said the outreach program was significant as the federation is focused on empowering and propagating the game of chess across the country. “We are planning to organise another competition before the end of the year, so as to round up our 2019 activities.”
