Chess in the Islands
It's when I read these kinds of stories that I have to react: "what the...are you kidding me?" Even in the Solomon Islands, chess is a sport! The Solomon Star reports, "PNG Chess Federation donated ten chess sets to the SICF last year and another 20 this year. The donation is to help and develop the sports in the country. Since the inception, chess has gained recognition and support from the National Sports Council."
