Games to continue

Since it looks like some sort of school disruptions may occur between now and the end of the Charlie Cup

Dear editor:

Since it looks like some sort of school disruptions may occur between now and the end of the Charlie Cup (checkers) Championship, I wish to make one thing clear (to) students who really want to play.

I (am) planning to set up at events such as school fun fairs, community events such as Rumblefest, Sointula seniors’ annual plant sale on Mother’s Day, Sointula annual May long weekend baseball tournament, Alert Bay June sports, and other events taking place.

If community clubs or recreation clubs have events coming up before Father’s Day and I would be welcome or allowed to set up to offer students new entries, could you please let me know either by phone 250-973-6932 or send me an email chkrking@cablerocket.com

I will work on school noon hour times as best I can as long as the labour dispute doesn’t prevent that.

Non public schools are always welcome to contact me for arrangements to have me visit either their school or their public or recreational event for new entries to get the chance to play.

Entry is always free.

Since there are several excellent special prizes students who play, (they) will have a chance to possibly win one of them.

(From) the winning school there will be both the MVP and MIP, most inspirational player, and from a non winning school the best sport.

The MVP gets first choice then the MIP then the best sport takes the remaining item available.

Other smaller prizes will be available at the end for those who deserve something, but didn’t get in on the special prizes.

The bottom line is, students if you want to enter you will get your chance strike or no strike.
