Entry fee $10.00 for each tournament. There is a brief business meeting after our Saturday tournament. There will be a $710 prize fund for the 3-Move Tournament and $500 prize fund for the GAYP Tournament. Thanks again to Joe McDaniel’s huge and generous contributions of $500 to each tournament. Taco Johns, The Kabob, Chinex, and Lino's Pizza are all located in the food court. There are plenty of nice comfortable chairs with tables in the court, and including a TV and wi-fi in the area. The Texas Road House and Five Guys are also located in the parking area. George and Darlene submitted several mall pictures to supplement this announcement and help orientate you to the mall food court.
We will need to enter the mall on the west side between J.C. Penney and Off Broadway Shoes.

For more information, contact George Stallsworth (816-689-2859) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org George said, "I thought what better way to make checker wives happy than to schedule a tournament in the mall (like they do in Illinois) so they could all shop and have a comfortable place to relax while hubby was playing his favorite game." Hope to see you all at one of our tournaments in Missouri this year!
