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

Convention Cards in NABC+ events

Anyone for going back to the old Fall schedule or moving the Reisinger to the first weekend of the tournament?
Akin to the great "success" of the 10K events, how much of the participation in the Soloway was just a rearranging of the deck chairs? Perhaps this was a motivating factor for Mr Shuster, but I look forward to the real data on the other entries.

The cranberry points will only be awarded for events played on Thanksgiving. But there's a movement to have "leftover cranberry points" available on the next few days.
Current Rumours for World Bridge Games 2020
As long as the WBF relies upon a "local sponsor" model for financing its tournaments, timing will remain very short-term.
