Suprised no one has posted the results yet? I heard another online player won the B Division.

10. Bryon Wollum 13
11. Don Verble 13

B Class
1. Brandon Like 21
2. Kenneth Ellison 18
3. Willis Shewcraft 18
4. Gayle Helterbrand 17
5. Leonard Hickman 15
6. Howard Hoover 13
7. Kim Willis 13
8. Roger Doll 12
9. Bobby Smith 7 (withdrew)
10. Jennifer Kelton 3

This was Brandon Like's first tournament and he learned of the tourney from the ACF Web Site . He is 20 and another welcome youth to Checkers. I finished in the middle of the pack and remain an average player:-) The tournament was dedicated to Bill Henson and Morris Pettijohn, two long time Illinois Checker players who have passed away recently. The 2006 tournament champion is Jerry Childers. This is Jerry's 4th. 101 Championship. The 2006 Illinois Champion is John Grisley, who has been the Illinois Champion three times previously. In the B Class the top player was Brandon Like. The B Class top finisher is Kenneth Ellison. Most of this information extracted from an email sent to me by Gene Ellison. I always enjoy going to Marion,Illinois for the 101 (524 miles each way for me).

I got to meet Mrs. Bill Henson on Saturday morning. She donated Bills Checker library to the Illinois Asscoiation to sell and raise money for the association:-) What better way to help an association and to keep a players books in circulation ? I had a wonderful time this past week-end.
