Two great minds (same pay grade):
I just posted something similar.

Kevin,
We are closing as of tomorrow.
Can you send us what you're sending to your players?
If you like, you show me yours, we'll show you ours.

Wuhan was just this past September. Several of our professional players made the trip and came back exhausted. From two weeks of bridge and a 20 hour flight, that is. Took two to three days to “recover”.
We will be here when this is over. When you do come visit us, mention this post and play as my guest. Bucket list…I love it.

I am hoping that on-line “Club” play will go a long way to doing just that. It will be a way for our players to feel good about being able to give back.

When bridge clubs start again….How exactly will small business survive months with no revenue coming in and rent to pay?

Hank,
It cost $52 to park your car while you are playing bridge at Honors. What do the players at your club pay?
It cost $5,800 a month for a decent two bedroom apartment within walking distance of Honors. $1.8 mil if you buy.
Movies are $15.
Prix fix lunch is $30.

So, it is all relative.
$35 for lunch and three hours of entertainment in Manhattan in a location down the block from Bloomingdales and across the street from the Bloomberg building is considered a bargain by my players. What to know how I know? We often sell out. That's 60 tables.

The average player at my club is well-to-do and can afford to pay $25 to play bridge on-line. If they knew that over $20 of that will be going to keeping their home away from home from going under, maybe they will not look at it as $25 versus $1, but as their way of giving back to try to protect their way of life.

BTW: Many of our members have asked how they could help. Pro's too. Staff too. We are all in this together.

Jay's idea is to tie players to the club they play at. They MUST play at that club. Of course problems arise when people play at two clubs or don't play at a club at all. But that should be no problem so long as we can identify those people Kevin referred to to help us out.

More kitchen table bridge, more bridge of any kind is good for brick and mortar clubs. Who calls me for instruction? More often than not the conversation starts out with,“I used to watch my…play and I was thinking…”
People covert what they see.

Too soon. We need to analyze the data from the two trial games.

All this may be true, but I just pulled off a Backwash pseudo Squeeze on board 22 and feel like there's no tomorrow!

For trial purposes we needed a small sampling of BBO players. I believe there are only three or four clubs involved in this trial. The selection was made to be as demographically mixed as possible. That's one reason both The Villages in Florida and The Cavendish in NYC were chosen.

The idea is to open it to all clubs that want to participate.
