Congratulations Alex - Masters, Jonathan - KY State Champion, and Ken - Majors

Mr. Leon Creek runs a fine tournament and thanks to Mr. Don Brattin for helping him in referee duties. Also thanks to Mrs. Brattin for providing excellent food (Refreshments and hot lunch were wonderful) for the players to consume while the tournament progressed. The LaQuinta is an excellent hotel to host the tournament and the playing room is excellent as well. I had a great time and nice to see many familiar faces this past week-end.  We had two very special welcome guests - Mr.Ian & Mrs Joan Caws from England. The youngest player - Alex Holmes, 7 years, and  92 years, oldest - Mr. Earl Harvell.   Sincerely: Alan Millhone, President - American Checker Federation
