Reread. Am responding positively in the negative.

I like that. A massive initiative on the part of the ACBL. What form might that take?

I know a way to get you two together. Gang up on me. I still don't believe the data will tell us much that we don't already know. Even if something did come to light, I doubt that our Board, or anyone for that matter, will know what to do with it. It will be extremely difficult to promote something, on the scale necessary, unless we focus our energies on simple word of mouth. Find a way to mobilize our 162,000 members. If each brought one player more than they do now into the fold, every FOUR years, that alone would just about double the present ACBL yearly number of new members. One every four years. Does that sound unrealistic?

If we instead set these senior and super senior events in terms of percent of population, then say top 15% gets you into Super and top 30% into Senior. That way, when bridge someday does finally make its comeback, maybe 60 will again be senior. BTW: Using this formula what would the ages be in these categories today in China or Poland?

Went to your website:
So that's where Steve DeVico and Gail Covey are hiding!

Jeff, Don,
OK…Say we get the data. Then what? Let's face it, we really don't have much of a clue about how our game will ever get promoted on a grand scale. As Jeff points out, one size doesn't fit all. What works on Manhattan's upper East Side, may not resonate in a retirement community or in a rural setting. I happen to know that it doesn't even resonate as far as my club on the West side of Manhattan.

Maybe not left to die, but tackled differently.

A more in depth study would show exactly what you think it would. How about skipping that and getting to the part about what to do about it?

I couldn't have said it better myself. Perhaps we influenced a couple of Board members the other day into not voting to reorganize just yet. Not until this issue is tackled. One hopes.

And a smaller Board not having the skill set needed to run this organization will be beneficial exactly how?
That's the point so many of us want tackled. Expertise represented in all areas. If that takes 9, 13, or 25 so be it.

Homework. What we do is assign just five hands for them to work on over and over until they can “see” the way to play it without actually needing to play it out. Hand recognition.

Have you tried integrating it into your lessons? Especially your beginner lessons.

ACBL membership and tournament attendance is falling and long term stinks. Why would 13 people with no real understanding of why, be better than 25?

How many would there have been had you not announced you were directing?
