As a member of the United States Backgammon Federation. A not-for-profit organization devoted to advancing the awareness, participation, education and enjoyment of the skill based game of backgammon. I will work to promote growth and opportunities for players of all levels. I plan on helping to bring the federation to the attention of all players of this great game. I have membership information available. Or you can go to theUSBGF web page for more info.
