Dear George and Darlene,
I want to express my appreciation for the excellent checker tournament you and Joe and Jeannie McDaniel hosted. It no doubt, will be the checker event of the year, not to mention the Grandmaster talent and prize money. I thank you personally for your generous support and effort to preserve our Grand Ole Game of Checkers. It has not gone un-noticed.
I enjoyed the renewal of checker friendships, top-notch competition, and all the fun. Ozark Valley Inn was a comfortable stay and offered a nice venue for the tournament. My wife and I dined at several nice restaurants and enjoyed several shows. We visited Lake of the Ozarks State Park, Table Rock State Park, and did plenty of sightseeing in Branson 3 days prior to the tournament.
We drove out so we took in a few spots on the way to Branson and back home.
Hopefully we will plan a van trip of checker players next year as the enthusiasm, interest, competition, and prize fund builds for another wonderful checker tournament.
A Checker Friend,
JR Smith, Secretary of NCCA
