The Championship was organised by Mrs. Yap and her team. The venue was sponsored by Berjaya Times Square while the sponsors for the prizes were Mattel SEA Pte. Ltd. and Borders.
My nephews, Vijayaraj from Seremban and Harendraraj from Johor Bahru also took part representing their respective states. It was their first such competition for Vijayaraj and Harendraraj.

Congratulations to the five players who made the cut for the Malaysian Youth team i.e. Scott (undefeated with 11 points), Ian (9 points), William Kang (9 points), Sean Chung (9 points) and Marcus (9 points). The next five players would be chosen according to MSA national ratings. Rama still has a chance to qualify due to his high ratings but we have to wait until end of August for confirmation.
