What a good start to the New Year at the SCF Hong Bao Rapid! 192 participants, even the organisers were amazed at the turnout!

There was a sumptuous Lohei led by the MP of Marine Parade GRC Mr Edwin Tong during lunch which was provided to players from the Siglap South CC. 

The Open event was won by GM Bong Villamayor while Danielle Tan captured the Challenger's. A fun filled day and no complaints about illegal parking which was a great relief.

What's heartening was the possible opening of a weekly chess-playing session at Siglap South CC should there be interested parents and players to support it. Who knows maybe a new chess club may spring up in the East! Looking forward to it!

For those going to the HongBao Rapid at Siglap South CC, my advice is to drop your children off or take public transport or cab if you can.

You can see from the map that there are at best 10 car-park slots near the CC. The residents living around the area can summon the LTA to book any vehicle that is illegally parked. So if you wish to arrive on time without hassle, do heed my advice.
