"Checkers Champs Looking for Young Blood'

Postby Mr. Checkers on Mon Mar 05, 2007 4:51 pm

:lol: The latest Nebraska State checker tournament drew only 10 competitors and the youngest was sixty two. John Pestal (retired Omaha barber is seventy five) trimmed all other competitors to take 1st place and he is the latest winner of the Lloyd Mills Nebraska State Trophy, signifying the winner of the annual state checkers championship. George Stallsworth (the youngest player in the tournament at the age of sixty two) tied Ben Schaben (who is eighty eight) for second place. The 4th place finisher was Joe Boyer (who is ninety one years of age). :lol: "Inky"

What year are you talking about? 2006 - 2005 -2004. This ty is played in the fall, usually in Oct or Nov. "Latest" would indicate 2006, but Rev Oliver won that year.

:lol: JR that information was taken from a newspaper article that was recently sent to me. The first paragraph states--"What if they held a Nebraska state checkers championship and no one came?" I checked with the Omaha World-Herald and they told me that it was written in 2003. :lol: "Inky"
