WINTER TOURNAMENT INFO
MODIFIED DOUBLE ELIMINATION

December 26th will be here in no time, so include the last tournament of the year as part of your plans, and it’s big! If you’re looking to have one more chance to show off your skills, or just have a good time, please join us. If you’re chasing league points for the coveted Player of the Year, this is your last chance to catch up.

The Colorado Backgammon Club is including $100 in added money. In addition, the USBGF is once again teaming up with local clubs for the Local Club Initiative (LCI), which is promoting 30 BG clubs across the US to ultimately have one member from each club compete online. If you’re a member of the USBGF, part of the Colorado Backgammon Club and a Colorado resident, you are eligible. The Colorado State Winter Invitational Open Champion will be representing our Colorado Club in the Online LCI National Championship. Last year’s Colorado LCI winner was Charlie Raichle, second year running. The winners from each club will compete online beginning March, 2022. The winner and runner up (aside from bragging rights) will receive a free entry into an ABT Online! event of their choice, and 1st through 4th will also receive a Backgammon Elegance doubling cube (NO player substitutions and you must maintain your USBGF status.)

So, save your spot in what will be a fabulous tournament and a great time!
