The first round of the 4th DATCC KL Open Team Chess Championship started on a busy schedule with the DATCC crew running literally all over KL to help manage other events around the City. There were 4 events running concurrent with the Kastam FT Internal Sports meet being run at Kelana Jaya, Inter Audit conducted at Damansara, MTD Sports meet in Gombak and DATCC very own Team event. On a positive note, it is indeed a good "challenge" as we can see the growth of chess as a sports in the country... 

Back to our Team event...
