Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: Q7432 Q32 K32 J6
Wondering how best to get to 4H on the Moysian - could easily be right.
Pretend it is 1993 and you’re at a bridge club.
They need to have smokers and non-smokers entrances for these WBF/EBL events - including the junior ones. The air inside might be clean, but within 10 feet of the entrance requires breathing apparatus.

Fishbein, pinpoint astro, extended stayman and stayman in doubt.

Mine dropped seven points after the birth of my child. I can assure you that was pretty accurate.

Alan Shillitoe's bidding problem: KQJT82 --- A64 KQT6
You bid 4H, partner bids 4N. Your move.
A better rating system
John, it's nonsense - the biggest pickups to be made are in a strong field with a weaker rated partner. Find a few aspiring juniors who are going to start making waves in the near future and ride their improvements to ratings heaven!
Jumping the Gun (WBF World Electronic Bridge Championship)
I didn't phrase that clearly Tom. Electronic bridge has saved us cash - as opposed to purely the world online juniors (your point was correct) - we've managed to hold other U16 events in a purely electronic form too.
Jumping the Gun (WBF World Electronic Bridge Championship)
We've already had the online junior world champs for a couple of years - screenmates connecting via webcam - and it has worked well. I'd also add that it saved massively on travel and accommodation costs!
U31 junior event
I'm starting to think that longer term this is a more sustainable model for many of the age group championships
