Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Steve: I agree wholeheartedly with going back to a 9:30 start time. In addition, as a purely voluntary organization, we incur few expenses, and coffee and bagels is not too much for ask for at breakfast time. It does NO GOOD to save a small amount of money if ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Randy: I cannot speak for Regional rates, although I believe they are the same. At the Unit 140 Sectional (central NJ) two weekends ago, the rates for ACBL directors were $159., $169., and $189., depending on their experience level. Rates for local directors, if permitted by the ACBL, are somewhat ...
Should This Type of Action be Recorded?
AGREED - One of the chief purposes of having a highly questionable action recorded is to prevent any such pattern occuring on a regular basis...How else is a Recorder to know????
The importance of understanding how ACBL players feel about bracketing
Melanie: As to your proposal, District 4 has adopted a modification of the KO approach you suggest -- NO TEAM is eliminated after 1 round. I am Tournament Chair in Unit 140 (central NJ). 20 years ago, on Sunday, we ran, concurrently, A/x, B/C/D and 299'er Swisses ...
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 ...
