Thanks Rick

April 2nd will be the last tournament Rick organises in Santa Fe before taking off for new adventures in another town. If you are reading this you probably already know it, but he created the SFR and has run monthly tournaments in Santa for about 2 years now.
I hope you will all turn out for this one.
