The Inter Campus GIIS Chess Championship 2013-2014 was hosted on Saturday, 11th January 2014. It was a priceless opportunity for students from GIIS campuses Bangalore, Surat, Noida, Indore and Chinchwad to participate in this exigent championship.
The students from all GIIS campuses met on Friday, 10th January 2014.
They were enthusiastically welcomed. Various activities like the ice breaker games, music, a talent show and lots of fun around the brightly lit bonfire helped the students and teachers to get familiarized. A scrumptious dinner indeed made the evening a memorable one and charged them up for the championship.
During the main frame Chess tournament, it was commendable to see the enthusiasm of the ingenious students. Students were deeply engrossed in recalling the moves that helped them to win before. Looking away, thinking about something else or even a momentary loss of concentration could have had resulted in the loss of a match. Hence, it was an exciting sight to see the intelligences working against each other with their own strategy.
The felicitation commenced by garlanding the bust of Mahatma Gandhi by the Chief Guest. Mr. Abhijeet Kunte, India's 4th Chess Grandmaster, was invited to preside over the Event.
