ONLY two new office bearers were elected during the 33rd Fiji Chess Federation annual general meeting (AGM) yesterday.

Teliko Koroi was elected as the new general secretary while Goru Arvind will be her assistant.

Arvind said the Koroi would replace Krishneel Singh who had been at the post for a year.

"Office bearers are elected at every AGM to give other people the chance to take up the office and help develop the sport," Arvind said.

"However, no other new office bearers were elected and Dr Virgilio de Asa remains president and veteran player Gloria Sukhu and candidate master (CM) Calvin Prasad remain as the two vice-presidents," he said.

Also three awards were given out during the AGM of which two were new while the President's Cup saw a surprise nominee being awarded.

"Nine year old Jacquelyn Masilomani was awarded the President's Cup for her fine performance last year."

"2011 Player of the Year award went to last year's national champion CM Calvin Prasad."

"And the Junior Player of the Year award went to 17-year old Ronald Terubea. He is very active and creative and he is also the u-20 champ and he played a grand game in the national championship last year to reach the top six," Arvind said.

Meanwhile, the inaugural Tappoo City sponsored Open Championship was held at the Tappoo City complex straight after the AGM.

Competition was still underway when this edition went to press last night.
