A 'Bridge Center' Organization
I am skeptical about any effort to get an organization to do what it clearly does not want to do. The ACBL Board seems completely blind and deaf to hostile negligence of clubs and player development. I'm more in favor of changing the organization — in this case what's ...
A Club Organization
If the Senate, like the current BoD, is elected by unit board members, then clubs will continue to be neglected. I have never seen a unit board that knew anything about club management, or even cared to know. And why should they? I like a much smaller BoD dense with ...

ACBL Live
Does anyone have information about ACBL Live from the perspective of tournament managers and directors? Specifically, how can it be used for posting results of regional, sectional, district NAP, and district GNT tournaments? We currently post detailed results of District 21 tournaments using proprietary software or FastResults. I am wondering ...
