This year the tournament dates for the District 4 checker tournament are the same as always. It is the first weekend in November (Nov. 7-8). This will be played on Friday and Saturday and will be at Gethsemane Baptist Church Fellowship hall. 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 7th. 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 Triad Inn in Lexington. Their normal rate is $65.00 per room. But they have given us a special rate of $45.00 plus tax, if we use at least 5 rooms. You must call early for your reservation. They will accept reservations until October 31. Tell them that you are with the Larry Michael group. The number to call is 336-249-0112.

Directions to the Fellowship Hall: From Triad Inn, turn right onto Greensboro St. (beside Triad Inn). Go approximately .8 miles, 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 at the address above.

See you on the 7th

Larry
