The Story of the Desings:
. the Borns of the FlameChess Gift Tower
. one year ago I met with danish grand master Peter Nielson. At the same big event of mindgames SPORTACCORD. the 5 meters high Biggest chess tower in the world was stand on the BEIJING Olympic park meeting hall.
. That’s the 1st time connection with danish people. the Encourage was that I be invited by Peter to visit Danmark. He like the flamechessset and play chess with cake honors. He enjoys the time to play with chinese kids. He was the friend of Flaming mountain junior chess team. Flamechess.cn was opened for this international connection. upfuture.org also registed at the this time, It’s used before last time visit CPH this March 2017.
. The idea using bottle caps to DIY chessset came from danish skoleskak. That’s the basic gift on the chess tower, 2000 bottle caps chessset on the tower, 2000 chinese kids came from community build it. That’s the Cultural and Education Programme on SPORTACCORD world mindgames 2014. Director General, Mr.Vlad Marinescu, addressed the children saying, “keep dreaming and do not be afraid to dream, but never forget to always work hard in order to make your dreams come true”. In front of Mr.Vlad there’s the same flamechessset played with Peter.
. Those gifts chessset was send to HEBEI provience QingLong MingDe school. There’re 30,000 juniors in Qinglong and Flamedoku grows up in there. (Qinglong kids also wanted it.)
