Weather Update For Thursday 9/19

Forecast valid until 9/19/19

We are expecting another night of heavy rain that will extend into Thursday. 

Another 6 to 12 inches of rain is expected in southeast Texas and 2 to 6 inches in western sections of Louisiana.

With a lot of this forecast rain to occur tonight, people need to be aware of the dangers of flash floods at night.

It is much more difficult to see how deep the water is over roads at night. If you can't tell how deep the water is over the road, do not drive into it. 

Vidor Children's Checkers Club


The time has arrived for us to kick off season #2 of the Vidor Children's Checkers Club!

If this year comes anywhere close to matching last year's excitement and fun, we will be doing well. Last year, the Vidor Children's Checkers Club kicked off its' first year with a bang. We had plenty of members and plenty of fun learning the game of Checkers. 

Checkers is a MENSA game that deals with solving problems, thinking, studying, analyzing, visualizing and competition. Our children advanced each week and we held several tournaments throughout the year and saw their level of play improve dramatically. To top the year off, our Club in Vidor hosted the USA National Children & Youth Checkers Championship. David Austin and Tessa Franks claimed the USA runner-up National Champions trophy. They both also won the Texas State Championship.

This club is for beginners, those with experience and advanced players. Our club has a Facebook site "Vidor Children's Checkers Club". Check it out to find out more information. If you would like for your child to participate, please come for our first meeting on Thursday, September 19 at Vidor Elementary School at 3:30 in Mrs. Waldrop's room. Be there to ask questions and find out for yourself what all the excitement is all about. 

The club is taught by National Ranked and Texas State Champion Watson Franks. We will be training especially to compete in next summer's 2nd Annual USA National Children's Checkers Championship.
