IPA Romania hold online national Chess Tournament & plan a multitude of future events to support members

19 Nov 2020

romchessThe Covid-19 pandemic meant the cancellation of many of the planned activities of IPA Romania, but solutions were found for organising events in an online environment.

In this respect, although the rules imposed for the preservation of health and safety do not allow any type of event, the Romanian Section organised a chess competition, and a contest related to the passions of our members, entitled “Spirit and passion in uniform – virtual exhibition”.

Looking confidently to the future, assiduous preparations are being made for the next period, which is why, in support of motorcycle enthusiasts, IPA Romania has concluded a protocol with riders of IPA LE MC Poland, who have opened the Riders of IPA Prospect Chapter Zalau in Romania, in accordance with their Statutes, and coordinated by Mr. Dan Hadade. We wish them success with this initiative, and safe roads to all bikers.

All these events, although in a unique format, have managed to attract the attention of our members, who have enjoyed following our challenges.
