The idea, that all Clubs post their contact information on the BB, which was (proposed by both charter and shotgun), seems to have been a good one. As of this date, three Clubs; The Homan Sq. Pool Checkers and Chess Club of Chicago, the Piedmont Pool Checker Assoc, and the Capital Pool Checker Association have all bought into the idea by sending in their information. One can simply click, Checkers Clubs on the BB to get that info. Hopefully, more clubs will do the same. This will, thereby insure that all will know where to go when visiting a new city and desiring a good game. Continue the great work fellows.

Actually none of the clubs sent in anything - I got Chicago's club address from your postings, and the other two were sent by Shotgun. I repeat - nothing is forthcoming from the clubs. Several people on Vog that I talked to did not respond to the the request.

One of the suggestions that Shotgun received was to look at the back of the annual booklet.
That is a bad idea on two fronts - first, many of the clubs listed there do not exist anymore, or moved - we do not want to send people to wrong addresses!
Second - the request was to members - do not send us to other places! it is members responsibility to respond, to keep making sure ALL the information, including email address, contact, address, phone is ALWAYS current!

It is bewildering to me why they do not respond when given such an opportunity to advertise their club! Don't they want more members? How does a checker player living in their city is to find out where the checker club is? There is nothing in the phone book, is it? It took me 5 years to find checkers club in Los Angeles - how do I wish there was an ad like this!

And think of the hundreds of youngsters looking for a checkers club near home - not finding it nearby they just switch their interest to some other game. We keep moaning "no new players" - but refuse to advertise, even when it is free! And the only place youngsters would look is internet - so do not wait - advertise! Even if your place is "under the big tree" - tell the world!
