The Dwarkamai Sports Team organized their first Chess and Carrom Indoor Tournament for Charity at Shri Dwarkamai Vidyapeeth in Billerica, Massachusetts on February 16th,2013.

The winners and runners of the Chess Tournaments are listed as below:

We raised about $500 at the tournament and donated the same to the Perkins School Of Blind. We had hoped to do a similar event at our Gurusthan Temple in Northborough the following day. But due to bad weather and less participation we had to cancel the same. In the future we will encourage our neighbors and friends near the Gurusthan Temple to participate in all our sports events.
We thank all the participants who made this a splendid experience to all. We also thank our volunteers of the Dwarkamai Sports Team (Prasad Pathak, Vijay Patil, Madhu Purushotham, Devi Narayanan and Nilesh Gunda) for their tireless efforts in making this event a success.
We hope to see you all soon at our next tournament. So Long …. Dwarkamai Sports Team.
