Congratulations to IM John Webster for winning the 2010 Virginia Open and Bill Salot for winning the 2010 Virginia State Championship. GM stands for Grand Master, IM for International Master, and CM for Candidate Master, which are earned titles given to distinguish players by WCDF.  Buck Smith - Tournament Director & Referee/Scorekeeping opened Friday morning business meeting. The Old Dominion Checker Association elected Buck Smith as President and Ted Taylor as Vice-President, with Buck continuing as State Tournament Director for 2011. T separates player's opponent from player's accumulated game points. (win=2, draw=1, loss=0, bye=3)  Ratings from WCDF January/June 2010 - No. 6   Ted Taylor handcrafted two nice mahogany checker boxes and gave them to Buck Smith and JR Smith. Bill Salot brought several sheets of his checker problems and whoever was 1st to solve any one of them won a classic checker book until books were gone.  John Webster won the 1st book, he chose as his prize Oldbury's problem book, "The Hand of D. E. O.", 1947.  Several other books left over were raffle off Saturday evening which Trey Stanley won a Tom Wiswell book and JR Smith won a Modern Magic book No7A.  Mike Ross brought a couple pounds of his organically grown muscadines & scuppernongs for the players to enjoy their ripe smell, sweet full flavor, and distinct taste of this native American grape of the Southeastern states. *John Webster accumulated 23 points by the 7th round and no one could catch him so Tournament Director elected to give him a bye on the last round and declared Webster the winner of the tournament, by doing so this left a balanced finish match for the top 4 remaining contenders. The Total Cash Prize: $260.00  We welcome Tom Taylor to his first checker tournament, he is a brother to Ted, Fred, and Lovetta.  Lovetta Currence and Tom Taylor also joined ACF and purchased a full year membership. This was a fun tournament, weather was two nice Indian summer days, most players enjoyed dinner and fellowship in Bedford Friday evening. Everyone had a great time!
