Mayor Whitley:

On behalf of NCCA & ACF, its officers, and all tournament players,  I want to thank you for visiting and speaking at our Elbert Lowder Memorial -11 Man National Checker Tournament.  We enjoyed your welcome talk about Albemarle and it was nice of you recalling your high school remembrance of Elbert.  You are a good spokes person and we would love to have you at our up coming 2008 NC State Checker Tournament - Carolina Open.  We would appreciate you repeating your appearance at 9AM May 16th, 2008 at Sleep Inn & Suites, 621 SR 24/27 East Bypass, Albemarle, NC.  We will be in the Meeting Room as our last tournament.

We completed our National event with a nice article in Stanly News & Press.  There will be a playoff for the World 11-Man Championship Title between Tim Laverty of Sanford, tournament winner and the current World Champion Alex Moiseyev of Dublin, Ohio, later this year.

We appreciated your presence.

I have posted the tournament results on our NC website under calendar. 




J R Smith, Secretary of NCCA
