The Big Chile - Left Coast Crime 2011

So, are you ready to head to New Mexico after a week with DETECTIVES AROUND THE WORLD? A number of us are heading to Santa Fe in March for Left Coast Crime 2011, The Big Chile. The conference will be March 24-27, 2011 at the historic La Fonda Hotel. Steven F. Havill is one of the guests of honor, along with Margaret Coel. Martin Cruz Smith will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. Steve Brewer will be Toastmaster, and Marvin Lachman will be Fan Guest of Honor.

I've never been to Santa Fe, but I'm looking forward to discovering the city. If you'd like to learn more about the city, check out the Santa Fe Convention and Visitors Bureau website. Or, sign up for an insider's view of Santa Fe. Jenny Kimball, Chairman of the Board of La Fonda on the Plaza, the conference hotel, blogs at View from the Plaza.

Better yet, sign up for Left Coast Crime 2011, and join us in Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Seems like we stayed in Santa Fe one time overnight. Never vacationed there. Do you suppose they have golf courses?? LOL

Look, Kay! http://www.golflink.com/golf-courses/city.aspx?dest=Santa+Fe+NM That's a comprehensive list of golf courses in Santa Fe! I just don't know if they'll be open in March when LCC is there. But, you can probably entice your husband other times of year!
