Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
I find the discussion interesting... My take is: Since the ACBL has been almost UNIFORMLY unsuccessful for the past 7 years in hiring any top management position, why not try something new???
Frequent psyches by a particular pair
Rainer: I agree that psyching against inexperienced players is the worst of sins. At our club, I have no qualms about an occasional psych against the best pairs in the room, but I would NEVER do so against a "C" or even a "B" player.
What does partner's double of GF 2!c opener indicate?
I abstained, because I objected to the form of the question -- it depends on what system you have agreed to play, not doing a ranking. With most of my partners, I play SUCTION (which would show a 1-suiter in d's, OR both majors). I agree that in the absence ...
Grassroots Participation in ACBL Elections
Don: In response to your query, the answer is NO. D3 schedules 4 regionals per year (only 2 of which "break even", or better). Over the past 6 years, several sites (7 tournaments) have incurred huge losses for the District (over $10k each), and I fear that another large loss ...
Grassroots Participation in ACBL Elections
TY, Ed. I'd like to think we have one of the hardest working and active Unit Boards in the East, for a Unit with 3000 bridge players. In addition, although our District is in deep financial trouble, 140 finances are in excellent shape, despite the attendance loss at Unit-wide ...
Grassroots Participation in ACBL Elections
To Ed and Steve Bruno: Ed, your cynicism is unwarranted. In Unit 140 (central NJ) board members receive no remuneration (except for an "optional" $100/yr to the Tournament Chair, whose expenses for transportation and other items are 2-3 times that amount); I hardly considered a bagel during our Sat ...
Grassroots Participation in ACBL Elections
Mike: I cannot speak for your unit. In our unit, 140, Central NJ, all nominees to the Unit Board must be approved by the membership at the Annual Meeting. Quite frankly, our most difficult task is getting people to agree to serve on the Board. We have a 2-term limit ...
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
I'm with Steve on this one. With the ACBL median age (not average) over 74, and the most of the "new" members being retired people, as opposed to young people, the fact that such people are not willing to travel to such an "out-of-the-way" (90 min. drive from nearest ...
ATB- missing spade contract
Len: Since almost none of my regular partners would play that 1nt is natural here (and, BTW, I agree with you that I would never do so, even if it were natural, with Ax of d's), I assigned all the blame to South, as I would have cue bid ...
Do you add 1Hcp for all 4 Aces?
Len: I made my comment, before reading the full thread. Please q.v. my comment above.
