Nothing of value comes without hard work or effort. For the past several months, much work has been put into creating the environment for a viable Canadian checker organization. To date, accomplishments include the creation of some standards for Canadian checkers, described in a document entitled Defining the Standard; the restoration of the Frederick J. Vacher Memorial Trophy as part of the Canadian Match Championship; and the holding of the first Canadian Checker Match Championship played in seven years. The latter event, publicized throughout Canada, was held in Ancaster, Ontario, from October 22-25, 2003, and the winner, Earl Morrison, became the first official Canadian Checker Match Champion.
The CCA is currently working on site selection and planning for the 2004 Canadian Open and on the completion by the Executive members of a Constitution for the new association.
