Another Proposal for SF
A National Director told me that the directors had an informal survey of the actual players in a National Event about starting times. By a 70-30 margin the earlier (10 AM) was preferred. However the 30% were vocal about their objection. The results were given to BOD. Another issue to ...
Another Proposal for SF
That is exactly what we did in D15. All meetings were Saturday at 9 AM causing board members to miss the AM game. Our next meeting in Oklahoma City is scheduled for Friday evening after the AM and afternoon games.
Another Proposal for SF
I will inform D15 District Director. Really wish ALL National Rated Events would be at 10 AM and 3 PM. Contrary to a vocal minority, more players want an earlier time.

Hawaii NABC Childcare CANCELLED

"Under strength" 2!C opening bid - ruling?
I like to open a 4 loser hand or better as 2 Clubs. This hand is a 4 loser hand hence I would open 2 Clubs. No issue from me.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
I know folks who have stopped going to NABC because the national events are not a 10 and 3 start. Why pay extra to play in a regional event? A compromise is needed. Maybe 11 and 4. The existing model is excluding players who would like to play. Can we ...
