Congratulations! to GM Richard Beckwith of Willoughby, OH as 2010 winner of the District 3 - Pennsylvania State Tournament.
Congratulations! to Laverne Wray of PA as the 2010 Pennsylvania State Champion.
Congratulations! to Ray Shelly of Cambridge, MD as our new
District 3 Manager and also recognizing him as the 2010 Maryland State Champion.
Actually Ray volunteered to run for District 3 manager or agreed to to be
nominated and serve as District 3 Manager, in the business meeting. He
will still be elected in at this year's ACF elections. Appreciative of his
interest, Alan Millhone recommended that Ray also be declared MD State Champion, to
generate interest in the game in that area. Ray is open to challenges, if anyone
wants to issue one.
In the playing room, Richard Beckwith displayed a picture of Tony Kozenski playing checkers --- in his memory, a remind to players this event was held in his honor and a tribute to his dedication to checkers. Tony Kozenski died October 24, 2009.
GM stands for Grand Master, IM for International
Master, and CM for Candidate Master, which are earned titles given to
distinguish players by WCDF.
