A total of 29 teams confirmed their participation so far, 14 in High School and 15 in elementary division.
"Pwede man muapil ang dili invited na schools as long as mu-inquire lang sila sa office for their participation ug voluntary silang muregister (Schools that were not invited can still participate as long as they voluntarily register their schools at their office)," Cruz said.
The said chess tournament has no registration fee and most participants are from public and private schools in Davao.
The seven-round Swiss System format offers trophies to winning school teams and medals to individual players. Merchandise from sponsors will also be awarded to the winners.
