The number of players, divisions, events are permanently on decline in ACF and Worldwide for many decades. Good people are leaving us and checkers fraternity and not too many newcomers join. It is in our hands to keep checkers alive. All active players, who plays in most state events, are well known. I personally invite all of you folks to come to OH tourney and any other state and National level events.

On my end I also promise to do all my best and trying to attend most events - due to my health conditions, family and job situation.

Regards,

AM

I will post on this forum in "General" session names of all OH State Checkers Champion starting 1904. All these names are printed on rotated trophy and 3 out of 4 sides are already full of names ! One side is still empty and we are good until 2053
I am playing checkers, not chess.

Won't be able to attend this year due to lack of vacation days. I hope it gets a good turnout however, as it did last year.
