April will be a good month for chess in northern New Mexico:

The annual Class Championship will be held in Santa Fe April 16-17, at Desert Academy in Ssanta Fe. The winner of each class will be invited to represent New Mexico in the Rocky Mountain Team Challenge, tentatively scheduled in July in Taos.

April 30 is the 17th annual Pir Maleki Memorial, held at the United World College in Montezuma (near Las Vegas). BY far the most beautiful location for a chess tournament in New Mexico.

It has been a pleasure hosting and playing in tournaments in the last couple of years, and I am grateful to know that Jim Johnston will be carrying forward the tradition.
