Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Rotary Club of Madras Industrial City (RCMIC) is a 26-year-old premier club in Rotary District 3232. RCMIC as a Rotary club applies its expertise, time and money on many projects that are required for the community at large. RCMIC has provided free dialysis machines, conduct blood donation camps, skill the youth of Chennai among many other projects.
Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders. Our programs help younger leaders build leadership skills, expand education, and learn the value of service. Rotarians recognize the positive change that young people bring about in the community.
Recognizing this, one of our projects dovetailed towards the youth, is its project “RCMIC Rota Chess Rapid Rating Open Tournament”. Our mission is to spread awareness about chess, promote budding FIDE-rated players to pursue their talent, and make this event a hallmark tournament for years to come in the Indian chess circuit.
The event is a FIDE rated rapid chess tournament in association with YMCA Madras, Royapettah Branch at its air-conditioned hall. This tournament is also approved by the AICF and TNSCA.
We are setting the total prize money for the tournament as Rs.5.55 lacs. We are also planning to recognise winners and runners-up in various categories with about 75 trophies and certificates.
On the side-lines, it is proposed to conduct a health camp (Dental & Cardiac screening), for the parents / guardians of the chess players. It is also proposed to have a small food court for the benefit of the parents who are waiting for their wards.
In all, RCMIC’s endeavour is to provide a wholesome experience to the chess enthusiasts at RCMIC Rotachess Tournament and make it a signature annual event in the Chess Circuit.
We will bring you detailed coverage of the event as I will be present at the venue.
