PORT HARDY—Jenni Walkus, a Grade 11 student from Port Hardy Secondary School, won a digital photo frame after correctly naming all 10 items in the Charlie Checkers Cup “Name the item” contest during last week’s fun fair at Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School.
Charlie Cup host David Lyon played checkers against North Island students both at the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw fair and during a lunch-hour stop at Eagle View Elementary.
There were no new winners, leaving Avalon Adventist Junior Academy with the only point earned in competition this school year.
Walkus correctly identified antique items including a slide rule, brass protractor, Civil War sunglasses, camera light meter, pedometer and baseball umpire’s counter, among others.
Lyon also set up his checkers board at the T’Lisalagi’lakw School basketball tournament held this month in Alert Bay and appeared again at the Port McNeill Schools fun fair.
