Mr. Bill Salot is a walking wizard of checker puzzles, he can entertain a group of players for hours by setting up problems off the top of his head. Here are three he printed up so we could win some of his classic checker books, which he usually gives away as a rewards for solving a problem, by raffle, or as top finishers in the tournament.  We are thankful for Bill's participation and welcome his presents which adds a new dimension to the tournament.
