2013 PA/District 3 Results

Postby Chexhero on Sun Aug 18, 2013 3:35 pm

Below are the results:

1. Joe Moore-10
2. LaVerne Wray-8
3. Alex Weaver-3
4. Jason Salon-3
Alex Weaver gets 3rd since he won the round against Jason.

Very small turnout this year, but still a very fun tournament. We all had a blast. A decent playing room and very friendly service, which was very helpful. Jason did a good job putting this tournament together despite all the adversity that surrounded the PA tournament this year. He also took us all out to dinner after the tournament was over and paid for our meals. The food was great too. Unfortunately, the tournament took place months later than usual and fell on same weekend as the Mid-Ohio, which greatly contributed to the small turnout. We will try to schedule it next year in mid June as usual. I also have some other ideas I will share later on. A thanks to Jason and all participants who showed up to make the tournament happen!

Just a little bit to add.
Yes this event was a huge disappointment after all the date/venue switching, though I hope everyone who attended had a good time.
The tournament date/venue situation will be remedied for next year. With only 4 players we had plenty of time for discussions and ideas of what to do better.

On a bright note, I would imagine this event probably had the youngest average age of a non-youth checker tournament in quite a long time.

Here is the round breakdown:

Weaver 3 - Solan 1
Moore 2 - Wray 2 (DD)

Moore 4 - Weaver 0
Wray 2 - Solan 2 (WW)

Wray 4 - Weaver 0
Moore 4 - Solan 0

The Keystone Checker Trust provided $190.
Prizes were:
1st - Moore - $120
2nd - Wray - $80
3rd - Weaver - $50
4th - Solan - $20
