Today on 15th Nov 2017 a press conference had been arranged for formally announcing Pune Chess Festival 2017.
As we all know, it's the 1st kind of a mega event being organised by AMCA - for the 1st time in Maharashtra. And there are so many new initiatives being implemented as follows:
- On - line registration
- On - line lodging booking
- On - line boarding confirmation
- 'Visualization' of few boards - live games in action
- Live commentary for selected boards by experts
Also, AMCA requested youngest Grand master of Maharashtra "Abhimanyu Puranik" to be with us as the 'Brand Ambassador' for national tournament (it would be a sort of children festival). We are happy to announce that, Abhimanyu Puranik would be a "BRAND AMBASSADOR" of PUNE CHESS FESTIVAL 2017. This announcement will provide an opportunity to young players to interact with young grand master and to receive many kinds of hints and inspiration from him. Abhimanyu Puranik would be available at venue for entire period of national chess tournament. I would request all parents and players to participate in this tournament and take an opportunity to discuss with young grand master Sanjay Kedge.
