Flannery Disclosure

David, now you have got me wondering (as a former regular 10K jogger). How does "exercise induced asthma" differ from other asthma.
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
No, Ray, something more like Stalin and the Politburo.
Murray Melton - Rest in Peace
Murray and Simon Kantor finished second in the WBF World Senior Pairs in 1994. If anybody has an accurate record of his high finishes in NABC events, please feel free to provide.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Ray, I believe the Socratic method assumes there will be some answers in between the questions.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Gene, why do people ask a bunch of questions instead of making statements?
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Alain, I believe he means "European Championships", not strictly continental European players. :)
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Good reason for written explanations, SAVED.
European Championships current standings
Is Greece the biggest surprise?
Does multi go for more numbers?
Yes, and once again I ask the question, "If scoring is matchpoints and you go for 200, is that considered a 'number'"
