five rounds of Swiss System will be played. This tournament is open to anyone wishing to play, there will not be an entry
fee, and American Checker Federation membership is not required.

Each of the five rounds will consist of two game matches with each player having red in the one game and white in the other. Beware
that red moves first, all jumps must be taken, and if you touch a checker you must move it.

Each round will be limited to 1 hours and if the round is not completed the participants will be put on a move a minute until a result
is achieved. Two points for a win and one point for a draw with totals added to determine places.

Depending on the number of players a Round Robin format of play could be used with each player playing a two game match with
every other player.  This tournament is open to any interested player from anyplace in the world.

The main purpose of this tournament is to promote checkers in North Dakota and specifically in the Fargo metropolitan area. The ideal
is to have fun in a game that looks very simplistic but which has many challenges to the participants. You will find that usacheckers.com
is the internet site for the American Checker Federation and much interesting information on the game of checkers can be found there. If
you have any questions, you may contact me, Neil H. Wenberg, at 701-799-4677.
