Gullacher claims Charlie Cup point

Devon Gullacher, a grade 6 student at Avalon Adventist Junior Academy, claims the first point of the Charlie Cup Checkers Championship.

Devon Gullacher, a grade 6 student at Avalon Adventist Junior Academy, claimed the first point of the Charlie Cup Checkers Championship during last week’s friendship soccer tournament at Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw School.

Of the 102 students who entered the checkers competition during the three-day soccer tournament, Gullacher was the only participant who swept a five-game series over contest founder and host David Lyon.

Lyon has now played 202 students since kicking off the annual Charlie Cup during the Fall Fair in Port McNeill in September. The Cup will run through Father’s Day weekend in 2014.

Lyon presented Gullacher a music CD for his win, and he will be entered for a chance at one of the year-end prizes awarded at the conclusion of the Cup.

Lyon will be busy over the coming weeks, setting up his checker board at holiday craft fairs in Sointula and Port Alice, as well as the Eagle View School craft bazaar.
