Thomas Shumpert was a victim of covid, he played checker at the Corinth Checker Club which they used the Local # 759L United Steelworkers' house, in Corinth, MS. Thomas Shumpert, Harold Thornton, Roy Harben, Bobby Blankenship, and Johnny Hunt were regulars every Monday 10am - 2pm.  There members have dwindled with the passing of Thomas, Bobby, and several years ago Roy passed in 2014. They desperately need some more players, hopefully some younger ones.
