1993 Terengganu Open Champion Ghalam Sani Dato Abd Rashid
of Terengganu (many times winner of open as well as the state
champion now retire from chess scene.)

I have been involved in chess activity in Terengganu since late 1980 either as a player or organiser,maybe some of you not even born yet.During that time we have up to four tournament per year and that including the Terengganu open which we normally organise in month of August.The first Terengganu open was held in 1988 at Pantai Batu Burok coinside with Pesta Pantai and they are three categories contested.The open section was won by Mustaffa Mohd and Lim Sin Leong won the novice section ,regretfuly I dont remember whose is the winner for under 12 section.In fact I lost all the records of most of our tournament held in Terengganu.But I managed to salvage some of the evidance of chess activities in form of pictures.Those picture are all taken during 1993 Terengganu Open which was held in front of ex Terengganu State Library at Jalan Sultan Ismail.
