The start of the World 11-Man Checkers Title Match has been changed to Friday, according to N.C. Checker Association Secretary JR Smith.
The change was made to accommodate the players’ schedule, Smith said. World 11-Man Checkers Champion Alex Moiseyev of Dublin, Ohio, is defending his title against challenger Tim Laverty of Graham.
The World 11-Man Ballot Match will start each day at 10 a.m. at the Econo Lodge, 2133 W. Hanford Road, Burlington, in conference room 245 on the second floor. The match is scheduled to continue Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
The public is welcome to watch the match at the Econo Lodge provided they show respect and keep quiet during the competition.
