Pal Bucker said, "I had a great time, I think everyone did.  The tournament was in
Indiana Amish country, some came by car, one by bus, one by bicycle, and some by buggy."


Indiana has the "Indiana Champion's Checker Board(s)" listing the names of our champions all the way back to
the late 1890s.  Were it not for these champion's boards that history would pretty much be lost.  This is the old board.

Pal Bucker said, "I want to thank my good friends Ed Lucas and his son Phil for letting
me hitch a ride, otherwise there would have been one player that came by walking!"


Hey Ed, put it back, you can't take that home!
