The induction of new members into he American Backgammon Hall of Fame is one of those events that our community looks forward to and enjoys. We are pleased, in this Spring issue of the magazine, to offer a transcript of the speeches made at the Awards Dinner in San Antonio in February, along with brief tributes to this year’s honorees: Hall of Famers Ray Fogerlund, Joe Russell, and Mike Svobodny, and Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Louise Goldsmith and Norm Wiggins.

David Presser and Igor Erovenko treat us to another of their series of fine articles, this time exploring the nuances of checker play after an opening cube in a classic double 3s blitz. For novice players, Steve Sax provides them with an insightful overview of basic strategy, explaining that choosing the right move is as easy as 1-2-3.

Bill Riles and Karen Davis provide coverage and great photos from the New York Metro Open in January (record attendance!) and the Texas Backgammon Championships in February.

Also in this issue, Phil Simborg interviews Tom Buckner, a USBGF Founding Sponsor, backgammon enthusiast and philanthropist, and the genius behind the line of P-40 backgammon boards and equipment.
