about me

I am a player, club owner and unit official living in Fernie - a city of less than 5,000 located in South-Eastern British Columbia, Canada. 

By far, bridge is the best card game going -  just wish I were better.  I do know that the more I know,  the more I realize I don't know!

Creating a BBO Club
I had sent an email to BBO on Monday and got this response this morning. Hello, Thank you for contacting us! We are very sorry but BBO has system overload problems. We have reached maximum capacity for almost everything. We have stopped giving hosting rights (temporarily) to anyone, until our ...
ACBL Reorg Fails by One Vote.
Do we know how each board member voted?
Half tables
1) This really isn't a concern at my club. I can count the number of times on one finger how often someone shows up in our small town/club without having first contacted me ahead of time. 2) No, not yet. I too am somewhat computer savvy but haven ...
What Does This Bid Mean?
Like occasional Bridge World MSC comments, "Should be unanimous"
Re: Nic Hammond's "Detecting Cheating at Bridge"
"Sleeping on the Couch". Sounds like a good name for a book! :)
How long should it take?
As you say, there are several factors which will affect things but my experience, while not extensive, is about 2-3 months to be competitive in a beginner game. An intermediate game is more likely in the 9-12 month range.
ACBL Club Department
Not only was Carol a caring and competent resource for all of my club questions, she always was able to point me in the right direction for any other non club inquiries I had. As Ken mentions above, I do hope that the priority of clubs at ACBL headquarters does ...
Advertising your club
Word of mouth is what has worked at my small club in a small town. I tried advertising in our local paper years ago without a single response. While our club's skill level is at the lower end of the food chain, the friendliness and hospitality is at the ...
