Backgammon champs descend on Santa Fe

By SFR Staff

The Backgammon Club of Santa Fe's New Mexico State Backgammon Championship is coming to town this weekend.
The club regularly meets at 6 pm every Tuesday in the library at La Posada (330 E. Palace Ave.). This event is the first-ever American Backgammon Tour (ABT)-sanctioned event in New Mexico, and more than 100 backgammon players are flocking to Santa Fe for the event (and receiving a special room rate at La Posada). Special players' dinners are planned at Café Paris (31 Burro Alley) and ¡A la Mesa! (428 Agua Fria St.) over the weekend.

For a full schedule of events—including opportunities to be a backgammon spectator, though that doesn't sound too enthralling—read on.
