FOR THE PAST 21 YEARS, he has ruled supreme in an invincible draughts kingdom.

And from today, Ronald “Suki” King will be moving around the blocks of Barbados, teaching his local subjects how to become royal on the draughts board.

King will be the face of the new HIV and AIDS Block Draughts Project launched yesterday by Minister of Sports Stephen Lashley at his Mall Internationale, Haggatt Hall, St Michael office.

King, the world Go-As-You-Please draughts champion, will be pushing the effort in teaching youths from eight communities the fundamentals of draughts during phase one. (EZS)

My complements to Mr. King for his sharing of the sport that brought him popularity but sadly only that, the Government never seen it fit to use this icon as a Tourist product something we kept missing for years when it comes to our talents in this country. I remember the foot ball great Goddard who were left out only because he wanted more for his talent instead of being just mention in the new what a great player and nothing to build a family on. That's why I will always say that those in Tourism cannot be marketing specialist because of these good opportunities over the years keep slipping while at the peek of these special talents we have are then to old to make an impact.
I wish "Suki" lots of success and prosperity....
