Cornelia,
Following that logic, why would you ever leave your apartment for any reason? Virtually everything can be done or gotten online.
I've played both bridge and poker online and found both wanting. For me, the fun is in the face to face competing. I love the camaraderie that comes out of it. If you are able to get that from online bridge, so be it. I'm with Ken. We are not all cut from the same cloth. I love the ‘club’ half of bridge club. So do the 37,000 tables of players that choose to leave their apartments every year, year after year, for the shared experience of playing bridge in a social setting in one of my three clubs.

To paraphrase Bob Hamman, “43 years ago I may have been one of the youngest club owners in the country. I still may be.”

Interesting. Through 2014 evening table count has remained steady if you take into consideration the rise of online evening bridge play. Do we have numbers for the past five years. I would think this could be critical.

Glass works best. Sound and sight effective.

Interesting. Do the 75% play? Do they play in tournaments or online, or maybe old fashioned rubber bridge? Or do they just enjoy getting the magazine for old times sake?

Not only that but people want to be with people. A curtain?

Probably? You think?
ACBL are you listening?

Alan,
Maybe there are two different levels of players here. If the class is meant to feed the game, then it is perfectly timed. If the same players could attend either, then that would clearly be counterproductive. I choose to believe the former is in play here. Am I correct, Jane?

Not following. Does this mean that they've decided to schedule lessons at the one time a week that presents a conflict?

I'm sure directors work this out quickly enough, but it still is worth mentioning.

After they've been warned, in fact, multiple times over many sessions, wait for the appropriate time to take the board away. Best when meeting another slow pair. BTW: Try never to take a board away if the table ahead of them still has more than a couple of minutes left to play themselves.

I agree. Take away boards. If you lose a few of them, your game will be the better for it. One bad apple is more than enough. Several threaten your game or club. Get rid of them. All of them if you have to.

Having a liaison on the BoD might help. It should be someone who would be responsible for bringing us in, in a timely manner, on the decision making in all areas that affect clubs and membership. At least we would have someone there that could see to it that our voice is heard.

You know my feeling. There is almost no club and membership BoD members currently sitting on the Board, yet they are the body that has become the de facto voice for these groups rather than us, the Board that was originally established to deal with membership issues. I would propose that BoD be the body that could only vote on membership issues if, and only if, they were first proposed and brought to the BoD for a vote by the BoG.

Edward,
Are players with over 2,000 points really still chasing these minor achievement goals? I have been told that maybe 5,000, and of course 10,000 are significant, but even then, no one has mentioned color.

Because of space constraints, we only run 0 - 750 sections. I agree, Gold is the reason most play. BTW: Gold is meaningless for LM's so for them I guess the hook would have to be the sheer size of the awards and the Instant Match-Point aspect.

We had none in our box and didn't realize it until game time. Some Instant MP event this turned out to be.

Then bullying a man would be what?
It's offensive.

Is there a strong teaching program in place at one of the clubs?
