The week ahead

Saturday, June 21 will be a busy day for ACF. The Missouri GAYP Tournament (Ozark Valley Inn, Branson, MO) boasts a prize fund of $4,000. The tournament is sponsored by David Seres and Joe & Jeannie McDaniel. Also on Saturday June 21 is the District 1 tournament in Dover, Massachusetts held by Richard White. [**UPDATE: Congrats to Jim Morrison and John Webster for being co-champions. Each won $1000**]

The American Checker Federation is partnering with Alzheimer's Association "Longest Day" (with June 21 being the longest daylight day of the year) to promote brain health. Activities are planned in Ohio and North Carolina to promote checkers while raising money for Alzheimer's Research. The ACF has a team goal of raising $1600 (and we're over half way there).
