:lol: That is a great answer Alex. This has truly been a record setting year for the publication of checker works. Can you think of a couple more to add to your fine list of American Checker Literature--2006? Today we received a brand new checker booklet that is not on your list. "Merry Christmas" :lol: (Cont.)

:lol: Thank you Alex--I will accept that fine compliment!! Here are a couple of others to add to your already impressive list of 2006 American Checker literature--(9) Jim Loy's--2005 ACF International Mail Tournament, (10) Dr. Ervin Smith's--2005 All-Recorded Games of the APCA. I will search our archives to see if I can't come up with one or two more, but in any case we should be very proud of these checker works all being penned this year. :lol: "Merry Christmas" "Inky" (Cont.)
