Event planning has begun; details here as they develop; progress is slow due to lack of local players.

Checkers in New Mexico

It's been a while since there has been a New Mexico State Championship Checkers Tournament. In fact, quite a long while.

I'm trying to find out what it will take to reestablish the checkers scene in our state. The last championship was held in the late 1980s, and the gentleman who was State Champion has unfortunately since passed away.

Help me out in this effort. If you are a New Mexico checkers player, or if you know of checker players in our state, help me get in contact with them.

My goal is to see a State Championship Tournament held in Santa Fe sometime before the end of 2006. Let's try to make this a reality. (It has been slow going so far.)
