Tribute To UM Project Director Chess Team Open 2010

The UM Team Chess Open Tun Syed Zaharuddin 2010 was headed by a soft spoken, Sharifah Itasha Jamalullai, a student at the Tun Syed Zaharuddin College, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur.

Due to a near-disaster with regards to the booking of the tournament hall at the college, the Organising Committee had initially postponed the chess team event to 13 March 2010, Saturday. The Organising Committee were busy calling all team managers at night on Thursday, 25 February 2010. Upon the advise of En. Abdul Hamid Majid, one of the MCF arbiters for the event, the Organising Committee decided to go ahead with 28th February 2010 date. Mind you, this was against the advise of their own UM Advisor.

Kudos to Sharifah Itasha, Project Director of the event and her team of loyal committee members for deciding to go ahead with the holding of the event, which has a long history of organising it. As they say, “The Show Must Go On!” The event was eventually held in three separate rooms, one room was without air-conditioning and the other two with air-cond. So teams wanting to stay cool had the added incentive of playing their best to stay in the top two rooms with air-conditioning.

Here are a few of Itasha’s pictures and her poses during the Closing Ceremony and in playing room 1. She assisted the Official from MCF to give out the prizes and certificates to team captains.
