Hi Jan:

Put me down as a NZ supporter as well. I looked over your site and like what I see so far. Any web site takes a lot of work and dedicated volunteers to keep it going . I also appreciate our ACF site being listed under your 'links' . To make our game grow anywhere all of us have to keep 'chipping' away to make it happen.

Sincerely:
Alan Millhone, President

website

Another website that Dennis Pawlek has just given me on Nz Checkers in the past is http://www.teara.govt.nz/1966/D/Draughts/Draughts/en


I never knew it existed.New Zealand was strong in draughts in those days, so heres hoping for a revival.I have just applied to the New Zealand Masters Federation to include checkers as a mindsport in their next games. My husband Jim just came back from The New Zealand Masters in squash where he won a gold medal.In a couple of years they are holding the games in Sydney Australia.

masters

In fact Masters, which is held every year over here,and gets great sponsorship is something worth pursuing for draughts. Do you have these games overseas?Its mainly for sports, but mindsports like bridge and scrabble are included, and if they can be included so can checkers.
