Heard Larry Pollard died about 3 hours ago CT 4:00 pm Saturday 9/17/2016. I talked to Kelly but I did not get into specifics. She indicated she will start making arrangements tomorrow. Larry had his 72 birthday June 30th. Larry was the Sponsor of the Alabama State Open and District 5, as well as ACF D5 Mgr. I have no information about the AL/D5 upcoming tournament, but will be in touch. JR

We appreciate Kelly Pollard, Dallas Ramsey, Frank & Mary Davis, and others who have made an effort to hold and continue the Alabama State Open and ACF District 5 in the Memory of Larry Pollard. The dates are the same as November 11th and 12th but the venue changed to Holiday Inn - Guin. Full details: http://www.nccheckers.org/NCCA/2016%20Alabama.htm

Another terrific checkers enthusiast and lover, organizer and man with a great heart passed away. I knew him very well from various Alabama and other State events. Great, unrecoverable loss for our small community. My deep sympathy to his family members, friends and everyone who knew him.
I am playing checkers, not chess.
