Thank you - Borrowed from Matt Swanson's site

Pull down to view all pictures... Matt Swanson shares his checker enthusiasm... and says, "A big thank you to Dallas Ramsey. It was incredible meeting Dallas at TN State. He was one of the first guys I played when I started playing checkers on the Internet when I was 15 years old. He's the good guy who took the following pictures." Matt Swanson's site - Checkers is Great: the love of the game - http://checkersisgreat.tripod.com/ - has been down for over a year, so I just happen to copy this set of Ty pictures and added some of mine own. This is a tribute to his great checker site, the checkers community will miss it!
