The Central River Region Youth and Sports Association Regional
Association and the local organising committee for the May Day mass sports celebration have decided to include CHESS in their activities for the celebration of the day slated for Saturday, 23rd May, 2015 at the Regional town of Janjanbureh.This development came after the Gambia Chess Federation, under the
stewardship of President Alh. Antouman Njie, assigned the 1st
and 2nd Vice Presidents, Amadou Jallow and Sasuna Mbaye, to form
regional chess associations in all the regions, in a bid to
decentralize the game and which was said to be successfully done.
Meanwhile, in other to have a successful competition, the local
organizing committee requested for technical support from the Gambia
Chess Federation to help coordinate and organise the event.
Responding to the request, the Gambia Chess Federation will be sending
a five-man team headed by 1st Vice President Amadou Jallow.
They are expected to leave for Janjanbureh on Friday, 22nd May and
return on Sunday the 24th May 2015.
