By Stabroek staff March 29, 2009 in Sports
President of the Guyana Chess Federation (GCF) Errol Tiwari will seek a second term at today’s Annual General Meeting at the Ocean Spray Hotel, Stanley Place, Kitty.
Tiwari is credited as one of the persons responsible for reviving the game in Guyana in 2007 and has been a key person in the promotion of the game in schools.
He was elected president last year and in a brief telephone interview with Stabroek Sport yesterday said that he knew of no one who may be challenging for the position but he would wait and see.
The GCF, which was re-activated in 2007 through the formation of an interim committee, has received the continued support of Minister of Sport Dr. Frank Anthony who has been instrumental in having his ministry acquire chess sets for schools and the association.
Meanwhile, treasurer of the GCF, Shiv Nandlall, has disclosed that the association has almost 100 financial (voting) members.
