GLICC tournament no. 42 to begin


  What is GLICC?  -- Great Lakes International Checkers Conference started in 2003 with a group of friends who love 10 x 10 checkers and don't often have a chance to play it in person.  We organized a round-robin tournament on, playing correspondence-style, making about one move a day.  Since then we have completed 41 tournaments, each one taking about 3 or 4 months to finish.   By now our players come not just from the Great Lakes region, but from all over the U.S. and several other countries as well.
