The Go As You Please National Championship will be held July 23-27, 2007 at the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many of the best players in the world will be there. Make your plans now to be a part of the biggest tournament of the year.

The Plaza Hotel at the entrance of Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas is a fine hotel with many restaurants, a swimming pool, fitness center, jogging path and tennis courts. The Plaza has given the ACF a special deal for tourney entrants. A total of only $45 a day from Sunday, July 22 through Thursday, July 26. On Friday and Saturday when almost all the good hotels go over $100, the Plaza has given us a specail rate of $75 total. The above rates include the use of a large playing room for the tournament.

The Plaza has requested that the ACF collect part of the above rates to pay for the playing room. Here's how it will work: Each entrant will pay the ACF a one time fee of $60 to take care of the payment of the playing room for the five days of the tournament. That amount will be paid by the ACF to the department that handles the playing rooms. Another hotel department will charge tournament entrants only $29 a day plus tax for the sleeping rooms Sunday thru Thursday and $65 plus tax on Friday (or Saturday).

In other words, tourney entries will be paying a total of only $45 a day for their rooms (which includes the tourney room). from Sunday through Thursday and a total of $75 a day for Friday and Saturday. (Two persons can share the same sleeping room). This is a deal that is hard to beat anywhere and we thank the sales staff at the Plaza for their cooperation.

Be a part of the ACF GAYP National. Arrival will be Sunday, July 22, and play will start Monday the 23rd. Rooms are limited so make your reservations now by calling 1 (800) 634-6575. To get the special rate, you need to mention the " U.S. CHECKERS CHAMPIONSHIP " . A deposit of $33 will hod your room. A major credit card will be required to hold the reservation or you can send a check in early enough to hold your reservation.
If you have any questions, call the tourney promoter, Gerry Lopez, at 1(951) 695-2499 or email him at: prof237@netzero.net

The week-end before the Nationals will be the 3rd. annual, " Arthur Niederhoffer ACF Youth Tournament", sponsored by Mr. Victor Niederhoffer. Youth should arrive Friday night (July 20th.) at the Plaza.

The youth will play on Saturday and Sunday . I will let ACF Youth Director, Mrs. Kim Willis give more details on the youth tournament. Both announcements will appear in our April & June ACF Bulletin.

Post your questions and either Gerry, Kim, Dr. B or myself will answer to the best of our ability.
