We appreciate Mr. O.W. (Buck) Smith for taking on this task, an Old Dominion Checker Association (ODCA) tradition. This is their 88th continuous Annual Virginia Checker Tournament (since 1917 and right through WWII) historically held in Danville, the tournament was moved to the beautiful location of Bedford in 2002. From the window of the Super 8 Motel there is a great view of Sharp Top Mnt. and the Peaks of Otter, once thought to be the highest in Virginia.
