GiLoCatur observed and chit chatted with few participants. One of them is a lady teacher from Batu Pahat. She and few of her family members came down from Batu Pahat, at least 3-hours driving, to Shah Alam for a weekend gateaway dan participated in a chess tournament. What an effort. They just participated in the recent 13th Bandaraya JB Chess tournament. And now want to have more. GiLoCatur salutes to such effort and encouraged her to more committed and be serious in chess. Hopefully, GiLoCatur will see again the lady teacher and her family members in other chess tournaments.

GiLoCatur also chit chatted with one of chess opponents and another player who just participated for the first time in chess tournament. The former participated in this year's MSSD Petaling Perdana and got 5 points. Not bad after all.  GiLoCatur encouraged him, Muhd Azim Anwar Noor, to participate in more chess tournaments especially in Shah Alam. By the way GiLoCatur lost to him in round 3. 

GiLoCatur believes many more people will participate in chess tournaments. The important thing is the promotion especially from the organizers. Chess tournaments shall be made attractive and interesting for people to participate. Chess players also should play their active role in promoting and encouraging their friends and relatives to play chess and participate in chess tournaments. Prizes also should be given to new comers or Under 1200 category for example.
