about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

ATB -- Missed slam
If East can’t bid 3H... a novel idea is to bid 4D. West can probably find RKC from there.
Thoughts on the makeup of the BoD.
More or less, that's what I meant. Also, if you increase your player count by 20% with novices, congrats... you have a 2.5 table novice game? We're not all in areas with millions of potential bridge players.
Thoughts on the makeup of the BoD.
"I do know, that of those nearly three thousand clubs, less than one-tenth have novice games. This leads me to believe that that same small percentage are the only clubs trying to create new duplicate players." I suspect this has a great deal more to do with available markets and ...
