It looks like this year I should have everything at high quality :D in Lebanon: I will drive with Mark Sokolovsky (high quality friend) in his new 2012 car (high quality car) and stay in Ramada Hotel (high quality hotel across Days Inn) with John Acker (high quality gentleman). Mark choose to stay in Days Inn.

Me and Mark are leaving soon and plan to be in Lebanon before 11 PM local time.

Prices this year in TN State 2014 also prove to be high quality !

See you all there, folks !

6-7. M. Holmes 17
6-7. A. Tucker 17
8. A. Bishop 16
9. H. Kelley 15

10-11. F. Davis 14

13. B. Gerringer 12
14. L. Steelman 8

There were two important announcements at tournament:

1) John Acker made an official statement that he runs for ACF President Position & I ran for ACF Player Representative position next year. In his speach John concentrated on 4 issues: membership, financies, communications and online checkers. I didn't have a special speech and just confirmed generally that we have a lack of leadership and need changes.

2) Michael Holmes ran a voting among players what system we should use in Nationals this year.

I was curious - what happened with official ACF voting via ACFB. It seems like Michael or ACF cancelled it, ignore or just forgot.

Many thanks to Frank and Mary for running event with the highest quality as usual ! Pizza was awesome and my hair cut got enough attention and appreciations.

Respectfully,

I think 40 or 42 in 3 Divisions. Less than 56 but more than 20. Not much new players, perhaps none this year except two nice small girls, both around 8-9 years old.

I noticed alex moiseyev has not concentrated on his or acker's lack of integrity as he generally agreed that there is a current lack of leadership.
I am curious how long players will allow you to be rude to them just because you can play good checkers. I am looking forward to continuing to address everything that you and acker say that is not true.
