The Bahamas Chess Federation (BCF) received the endorsement of The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, on Thursday 8th October, 2009 in support of its efforts to bid for the Caribbean Chess Sub Zonal Tournament 2010.
The BCF is in the process of exercising its option to bid for the Caribbean Chess Sub Zonal 2.3 2010 scheduled for next year June. If successful, the Sub Zonal will be the first FIDE Tournament hosted by the BCF and held in The Bahamas.
