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.

United States of America

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?

Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
Why not ask the head of Appeals & Charges directly and see what answer comes back?
Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?

Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?

Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
Just remember folks....the head of Appeals & Charges is the same person who was in charge of WBF discipline back in Chennai. And the same person who led the effort to defeat multiple BoD motions that would make expulsion permanent. And the same person who believes that everyone deserves the ...
Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
If so, it would have taken an affirmative vote of the entire BoD. Had this happened, it should have been included in the summary of actions that the Chairman of the BoG presents to the BoG meeting. Now, I will be the first to confess that my summaries did not ...
A new type of regionals
First off, there are tournament coordinators for all districts that work to minimize conflicts. Second, there is only the "Western Conference" anymore, as District 7 is now running its own tournaments. And even the WC is more and more becoming just a shell to run a newspaper, with only districts ...
A Recommendation for USA Bridge
Investments are just that....stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc. The ACBL does not keep all of its funds in "cash". The ACBL retains investment advisors to manage its portfolio.
Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Already done. Check with Ken Monzingo to see how it went. Without a clear, agreed upon vison of what an NABC is supposed to be, all you will get will be moving deck chairs around to suit favored constituencies. And that is what happened.
