Young checkers player Nelsen Angela has moved on from the Junior checkers circuit and commands quite a presence in the International stage today competing in the Senior Pan-American Championships and other International checkers tournaments.

The countries that were represented in the championship checkers match were:
Bonaire (1)
Curaçao (5)
Suriname (1)
Trinidad & Tobago (7)

The Round Robin format was set as a 13 round play down. The winner and champion of the checkers tournament was checkers player Nelsen Angela.

The 3rd Junior checkers championship took place in Paramaribo, Suriname. The contenders came from Brazil, Curaçao, Suriname and Trinidad & Tobago. Twelve boys and eight girls challenged each other at the checkerboard for the checkers championship title.

Then in 2004, the Junior championship tournament was back in Curaçao and a now familiar roster of players met to face off at the checkerboard in a round robin series of checkers games. The usual countries sent young hopeful representatives, but this year a new player had been invited to participate in the Junior checkers championship ~ a young grade six player, Emma Munits, from Thornhill, Ontario, Canada.

Two years later, the 5th Pan-American Checkers/Draughts Junior Championship was offering a venue in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The players’ roster included a field of 10 teenage boys and 6 teenage girls:

Aruba Thiago Gomez
Albertico Arends
Canada Emma Munits
Curaçao Rishaira Giterson
Turani Lodriguez
Vivian Troncon
Bonaire Chio Feng
Brazil Humberto Bifolco
Curaçao Mijail Eisden
Quincy Lopez
Gedion van Eiken
St. Maartens Oneida Arrindell
Trinidad Marcus Ramsundar
Devan Rampersad
John Mowassie
