New England Checkers - newspaper article

Postby JR Smith on Tue Jul 04, 2017 1:04 pm

Recent New England Checkers' newspaper article that will help you put some player names with their pictures.

Be sure to also read Glenn Jordan's 1997 article, he actually emailed me to get the current status of ACF but I was ashamed to reveal our numbers; however, I've seen a small uptick in membership but we are dismally low compared to yesteryears.

J.R., thanks for the checkers article by Glenn Jordan; such a well written article can only advance the popularity of checkers. I really liked the article, but what is the Iron Cross opening that was played in the final game?

Excellent article, JR! Thanks for posting (and for all the other "above and beyond" things you do for checkers).

Always a pleasure to read your posts.

Respectfully,

George - I don't know where Glenn came up with the name Iron Cross - it was a regular 11-15 23-18 8-11 27-23 4-8 etc game. Perhaps some Maine nomenclature I'm unfamiliar with.

Richard White, thank you for the clarification, it was the regular Cross opening, still the Iron Cross sounds dramatic! :)
