District 4 - Lexington, NC

Postby JR Smith on Tue Sep 29, 2015 4:07 pm

Dear Checker Players,

This year the tournament dates for the District 4 are the same as always. It is the first weekend in November (Nov. 6 & 7). We will be played on Friday and Saturday at Gethsemane Baptist Church Fellowship hall in Lexington, NC. There will be 8 rounds of 2 games each (1 opening) using the 156 deck openings. Scoring will be by games, 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. As in the past, first prize will be $500.

Entry fee will be $25.00 and registration will be 9:00-10:00 AM on the 6th. Play will begin at 10:00 AM sharp. There will be 4 matches played on Friday and 4 on Saturday with a two hour time limit per match.

I want to urge you to come. On Friday morning there will be a short business meeting before the tournament begins. On Friday night at 6:00 PM there will be a dinner served for the checker players in the church fellowship hall. This promises to be a quality tournament and I hope you plan to be with us.

This year, I have made arrangements for accommodations with Budget Inn in Lexington. It is a small, older motel, but their rooms are clean and the rates are low. The number to call for a reservation is 336-248-5172 or 336-248-5171. If there is no answer you may call Jack at 336-287-3694.

Directions to the Fellowship Hall: From Budget Inn take business 85 north about 2 miles and turn left on Greensboro St. (beside what used to be Triad Inn. It is torn down now). Go about .8 mile and then turn left on Hill Everhart Rd. Continue .4 mile to Gethsemane Baptist Church on right.

I cannot stress enough how much we want you to come to this tournament. Let's make this a great tournament and a fun time for all. If you have any questions, or need assistance in anyway, please call me or you can e-mail me. 336-248-8620 or ltmichael@lexcominc.net 

See you on the 6th, Larry Michael

Larry / JR,
