Draughts king seeks $$ assistance for World Champs

Draughts

Dickson Maughn, during a visit to Newsday’s Port of Spain office yesterday.

Dickson Maughn, the reigning national draughts champion, is currently seeking financial assistance in order to participate in the World Draughts Championship, which will take place in Estonia from October 1-17.

Maughn, who have captured the national title a whopping 13 times, is hoping to accumulate at least $25,000, which will cover the cost of his airfare and accommodation.

He is hopeful that he can get support from the Ministry of Sport, the corporate sector as well as members of the public, in his quest to put Trinidad and Tobago on the global stage.

For more information, call 352-8054, 684-9299 or 297-7407.
