CEBU City Sports Commission (CCSC) chairman Edward Hayco wants the Cebu Executives and Professionals Chess Association (Cepca) to continue the chess program that attracted more than 43,000 players during last year’s record-breaking attempt for the biggest chess tournament.
Hayco had a lengthy talk with Cepca president Jojo Muralla to discuss plans of giving Cepca the free hand to handle the city’s school-wide chess program.
“You have 40,000 raw talents waiting to be developed and CCSC has around 10,000 chess equipment distributed in 12 school districts – that is around 800 per district. It’s a very wide selection for a brand new talent,” Hayco told Muralla.
