I suggest we have the tournament back in Carlisle or the Reading area. Reading is only maybe an hour to hour and a half from Carlisle. The reason for this is because Jay Hinnershitz has giving me the opportunity to promote checkers at a block party in Reading. I will be there this Saturday and will try to make it another Saturday later in the summer. From what I know there are a lot of people that go to it, which means I can do some heavy promoting. So I think there is a chance that if I do a good job we could possibly draw a few more people for next years tournament, so having the tournament close by would be helpful. It obviously would be A LOT better to have done this before this year's tournament started, which I had the chance to do, but couldn't because of work, but I am sure there will be a good chance I can do this the following year too.
The plan is to have me sit at 3 tables with a sign about me being state champion and my checkers history. Then people can come play me, possibly 3 at a time with the 3 tables. My plan is to give everyone I play a card with my number, email, and also this website address. I am also going to be putting my own website on the card, which will be available later during the summer. If you want Neil, I could put your contact info on the card since you are the one who seems to be running this next PA tournament. But let me know if that is ok with you. BTW, this is a big event, if anyone has any advice for me and good ways in which I can promote our game and for next upcoming PA tournament let me know, I am very open to ideas! I am very thankful to Jay H for giving me this opportunity.
