There is no guarantee the rates will apply or the rooms will be available after that date. The playing room is free provided a combined total (from both hotels) of 12 rooms are rented. Otherwise, there will be a daily fee. A continental breakfast is available at both locations; however, we play in the main conference room on the 1st floor at Comfort Suites.
This year as in 2014 Tennessee State Open Checker Tournament, the prize fund will be ≈ $5,000 because of the generous Leonard Hickman Gift and Gene Lindsay Fund. Our TN State Open large prize funds would not be possible if not for the financial support bequeathed to Tennessee Checker Association (TCA) by Gene and Leonard.
