In Response To: Las Vegas Youth Challenge Match (Bill Riles)
Thanks Bill. I am really happy to hold this event cooperated with USBGF.
JBL is doing the project called "Under 25".
Under this project we do monthly meetup, yearly summer camp, and holding a youth league. Anyone who is equal or under 25 years old can participate for free of charge.
This year, thanks to the sponsor, we could send the best player to Las Vegas. Yuki Hiroki, the winner of the youth league, was chosen as a representative of U25. He basically got a free roll into Las Vegas Open.(Hotel, Air, and entry) It is his first international tournament.
I hope we can continue this project (Sending the best to Las Vegas Open) every year. I also hope other federations keep putting more effort on promoting backgammon to youth players.
