The John Fawole Chess Awards!
The John Fawole Chess Awards is an initiative of BruvsChess Academy.
Looking at the bigger picture of Chess in Nigeria, Nothing of this nature has never happened in its history.
The main idea is to award plaques to outstanding Nigerian chess players based on their individual performances, team performances, club performances, organization and arbitration.
In my opinion, it's a laudable project to embark on in a short while.
The 2016 edition went well with a combination of two steps to get the best awardees.
The voting was the first stage, followed by the panel of judges decision.
Full report will be in the next post.
