Dear Checker Player, 

This year the tournament dates for the District 4 are the same as always. It is the first weekend in November (Nov. 4-5). This will be played on Friday and Saturday and will be at Gethsemane Baptist Church Fellowship hall in Lexington, NC. There will be 8 rounds of 2 games each (1 opening) using the 156 deck openings. Scoring will be by games…2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. As in the past, first prize will be $500. 

Entry fee will be $25.00 and registration will be 9:00-10:00 AM on the 4th. Play will begin at 10:00 AM sharp. There will be 4 matches played on Friday and 4 on Saturday with a two hour time limit per match.   

I want to urge you to come. On Friday morning there will be a short business meeting before the tournament begins. On Friday night at 6:00 PM there will be a dinner served for the checker players in the church fellowship hall. This promises to be a quality tournament and I hope you plan to be with us. 

This year, I have made arrangements for accommodations with Budget Inn in Lexington (200 Murphy Dr, Lexington, NC 27292). It is a small, older motel, but their rooms are clean and the rates are low ($50 King, $55 Queens... tax included). The number to call for a reservation is 336-248-5172 or 336-248-5171. If there is no answer you may call Jack at 336-287-3694 

Directions to the Fellowship Hall: From Budget Inn take business 85 north about 2 miles and turn left on Greensboro St. (beside what used to be Triad Inn. It is torn down now). Go about .8 mile and then turn left on Hill Everhart Rd. Continue .4 mile to Gethsemane Baptist Church on right.

I cannot stress enough how much we want you to come to this tournament. Let's make this a great tournament and a fun time for all. If you have any questions, or need assistance in anyway, please call me or you can e-mail me at the address above.

See you on the 4th,  Larry Michael
