Joe, thanks alot for your and Dr. Martin efforts promoting checkers. I spent unforgettable time in Anderson, and I am sure - Ron too. From many other checkers events I had attended since 1996 - this one is on top of my list. I remember each single inch of check I've got from mayor of Anderson !

I am planning to be in Anderson again in October and play in the State tournament.

Do you have Air Ballooning this time of year ? :)

Thanks Alex for those kind words. We did a test run match on the turbo checkers tonight and the spectators were AMAZED. We don't have a balloon ride scheduled but all it takes is money, so we shall see.
