Checkers in New Mexico

It's been a while since there has been a New Mexico State Checker Tournament. In fact, it's been quite a long while.
Bob Newell is trying to find out what it will take to reestablish the checker scene in his state of New Mexico. The last New Mexico championship was held in the late 1980s, and the gentlemen who won the New Mexico Title has, unfortunately, since passed away.

Please assist Mr. Newell in this effort. If you are a New Mexico checker player, or if you know of checker players in New Mexico, help Mr. Newell to get in contact with them.
Bob Newell's goal is to see a New Mexico State Tournament held in Santa Fe in the Fall of 2005. Please help him make this a reality.
Contact Bob Newell at chungkuo@chungkuo.org if you can be of assistance in any way. While you're at it, take a look at Bob Newell's Checker Pages.
