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.

Country
United States of America

Kieran - and if you can know what that committee score would be, while still playing the session, my hat's off to you.
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
[i]"League Counsel Linda Dunn convinced the ACBL Board"[/i] Winner of "Most depressing thought of the morning."
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Avon and Bill - it's full ostrich mode. Put the head in the sand and hope it's all gone when you pop your head back up. When one starts with the premise that major bridge regulatory authorities would rather have silence and a lack of disruption rather than a ...
An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Two choices....follow Ray Yuenger's advice, as it gives the best chance to catch them with actionable evidence. Or, coldly look at them and say "I see that you learned to play bridge the same way as XXXXXX" (XXXXXX=noted convicted cheat who copped results). While #2 may be ...
