How Does Your Club Handle Director Pay, Recruiting, Partnerships, etc?
1. Mostly by the session with a small bonus for larger games 2. Again, a small bonus for running 2 games at once. We have one director run 2 games with our smaller games. They don't total as many tables as our larger games. 3. A small bonus for ...
Disposing of old cards
Visited Alcatraz a few years back. Apparently Bridge was a common recreation there. They had a display that included an old Autobridge. Surprised me - the one my mom had from the 50s and that I learned on was metal with somewhat sharp edges. Seemed like a bad idea for a ...
Live 4 Clubs and USEBIO files

ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Wizards of the Coast makes their money selling new decks of cards with new monsters, new powers, etc. I quit playing Magic the Gathering when I realized that I would be spending lots of money just to play at home with friends. Imagine if the ACBL added a new suit ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Directors don't get $189 per session, that is what the ACBL charges. Some of that goes to the director, depending on the director's pay rate. $91.50 per diem in very few places (like New York City). Here in midwest its usually more like $50 or $55. I ...
