One more state and you can join the "10 States Club"!

How about Virginia in September?

I am glad to be a member of the "10 States Club" and agree 100% with the nomination of Wade for Prez !!

It's fun to see where everyone has played.

I just realized that I can add NV to my list because I played twice in Las Vegas in ACF Nationals (not State) tourneys in 2001 (GAYP) and 2008 (3-moves).

I am glad to see that number of "10 State Club" members is growing :lol:

So ... Wayne, me and Wade are first members. Three of us voted 2 against 1 :lol: to nominate Wade to President position.

I also beleive one of our greatest travellers Neil Weinberg can join club but only himself can prove this. In addition,I have a little doubts that such strong players as Richard Beckwith, Michael Holmes and indeed ACF veterans Ed Bruch and John Webster can easily join the club.

The main goal of club, at least first several months or 1-2 years - collecting and recruting all elligible members.

BTW. I plan to participate this year in Southern State ty (first time !) and Virginia, where I didn't play more than 10 years.

I am playing checkers, not chess.

I don’t know his list, but Gayle Helterbrand must also be among the leaders of # states played in. I recall he used to play in some 20 events per year. As for my own list:

State Tournaments: IL IN OH PA NY TN FL

Additional states competed in (Districts/Nationals): Mississippi, Virginia, Nevada, Michigan, North Carolina

Other Countries (Nationals/Int. Matches/Qualifiers): Canada, Barbados, Czech Republic, China, England & Scotland, and one mini-match in Russia (plus one 100-square blitz tournament in Spain)
Richard Beckwith
ACF Treasurer / WCDF President
