CHARLOTTE PUTS A CHECK ON MOVE TO THE AHL

     The ECHL Charlotte Checkers are refusing an offer to move to
the AHL.  Team President Carl Scheer said yesterday the team has
removed its AHL application and will remain in the ECHL.  Scheer
said the team had "made remarkable progress in the ECHL" and felt
that "with our current business plan we can help the ECHL grow
into a first-class minor league."  ECHL Commissioner Pat Kelley
announced that the Richmond team will also stay in the league,
with Hampton Roads and South Carolina also "a very good
possibility to stay" (Cliff Mehrtens, CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 3/22).
