Mr. Lubabalo Kondlo of Port Elizabeth, South Africa won the World Qualifier in GAYP at the Plaza Hotel and now has earned the right to challenge Mr. Ron 'Suki' King of Barbados for the title in 2008. These two men now need a venue to play this upcoming match. Mr. Kondlo has been virtually an unkown to the Checker/Draughts community till he came and won the ACF's National Tournament earlier this year in Las Vegas at the Plaza Hotel. Contributions are also now being accepted for this match . Not sure about the played games as that has not been decided as yet as to their distribution or who will own the played games ? A 'button' is available at our ACF 'online' store so you can make credit card contributions. I assure you this match will be exciting between a formerly unknown player and a long time champion.
