Guam - World Chess Federation officials are on island this week hoping to promote and support the sport of chess.

A presentation was held this morning at the Governor's Office where members of the Guam Chess Federation along with the Department of Education were informed of plans to develop chess programs in the island's education curriculum. Chief executive officer and vice president of administration for the World Chess Federation Geoffrey Borg told KUAM News, "We have to work here together, we in the federation are very enthusiastic about the programs in the schools this is a program we have in about 130 countries, it varies on the commitment that a country can show."

The World Chess Federation has members in 183 countries and hopes to expand to Guam. A 15-hour chess seminar is set for tomorrow and Saturday at the University of Guam where teachers can earn one graduate credit and can be certified as a national instructor or developmental instructor of chess.
