about me

Trying to do what's best for the game, often by clearing up misconceptions and misinformation.  All opinions are my own and reflect no bridge organization or group.

Past: Served for 9 years on ACBL BoD, 4 years as BoG chairman, lifetime member of BoG, 9 years on D19 board, almost every unit job from grunt labor to unit president.  Proudest bridge admin experience was being "first spouse" to a great BoG chairman.

Current: Retired, but sharing my experience and knowledge.

A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Debbie - I concur that good CoC take work to create. However, one key element is for the drafters to try to come up with just about every odd possible situation and see how the CoC addresses the issue. Sit around for a while and ask the "what if"s. Then ...
Outraged by the USBF
Ozzie Jacoby won the Reisinger in 1983. He was born in 1902. Looks like 81 is probably the number for "eldest".

How about turning "The Longest Day" around? Instead of raising money for an outside charity that had 2017 revenues of over 345 MILLION (and which doesn't receive Charity Navigator's four star rating), how about we use it to bring new people into our bridge clubs? They can come ...
Declared Candidates for 2019 District Director Elections
Which led to the humorous result when a lady came up to me and congratulated me on my victory for the BoD. Told me she was a big supporter and voted for me. Only thing was that her unit voted 5-0 against me. Ooops.

Note the two items always front and center in any CEO report. Overall membership number and recent table counts. The analysis stops there. CEO gets those numbers higher = good. CEO gets those numbers lower = bad. Simple metrics. And wrong.

Doing my part to cover the "over".
Declared Candidates for 2019 District Director Elections
And no one from D2 filed to serve on the BoG. So the choice of who those three will be will be done by the D2 district board. Jonathan, you should have filed, if only to get floor privileges at the BoG meetings.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Mike C - I believe that an invalid result should be overruled. And further, that a valid result, no matter how distasteful, should be upheld. The question becomes: Is the result valid? And only investigation and comparing to regulations will answer that definitively.
Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
I know it becomes painful to remember, but the Hartman administration had several outside marketing agencies. He felt that we needed to go top-rank and hired GolinHarris out of Dallas (at a cost that started at 10k per month and zoomed upward). Then the Director of Marketing decided to move ...
Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
Why do I suspect that the proposed plan will be a long, multi-year affair. With a contract clause that if the client bails on the relationship before the end of that period, the guarantee is null and void.
