Charlie Cup Checker sponsor and host David Lyon

Champions crowned

Stephanie Lacasse and Devon Gullacher of Avalon Adventist Junior Academy honoured in Charlie Cup Checkers Championship.

PORT HARDY—Stephanie Lacasse and Devon Gullacher of Avalon Adventist Junior Academy were presented plaques honouring their accomplishments in the 30th annual Charlie Cup Checkers Championship after helping the school to the team title in late June.

Contest sponsor and host David Lyon presented Lacasse, who won the only point from more than 350 entries, the MVP keeper plaque. Gullacher was awarded the Most Inspirational Player plaque.

A third winner, Best Sport Judy Charlie of Eagle View Elementary, was not at school the day he came to deliver her prize, and it was left for her at the school.

“This was a truly a very well played championship this time around,” said Lyon. “Excellent sportsmanship, too.”

The Charlie Cup offers North Island schoolchildren a chance at prizes through a series of checkers games against Lyon at events through the school year. To earn a point for their school, students must sweep Lyon in a five-game series.

The 2013-14 Charlie Cup is expected to kick off at the Fall Fair in Port McNeill Sept. 7-8.
