Matthew: if airbnb impacted Hawaii shouldn't the tablecount have been substantially better than a 30% drop from the previous Hawaii NABC? Airbnb, in theory, represents players who simply want cheaper accommodations.
What percentage of the cost of attending ACBL Nationals are Card fees?
Don't forget that NAP events generate no card fee revenue.

Adam says: "Are we really that bad at anticipating room needs?" Speaking only for myself, the challenges facing tournament organizers is alot more difficult than seems be generally recognized. The net-net is that substantial work is being done to adjust to the new realities of our hosting model. Our current ...

Michael and Mike are right, of course, as to why there are more B and C NAPPERS now. My point was that now that we've gotten them to the NABC we should provide them with a good warm-up/lead-in event. And this field is relatively young. Note that the ...

3NT was dismissed too easily. True, KQ is a bad holding but I disagree with the argument that solid clubs are necessary after the 3 bid. Opener holding Qxx or JTx would likely be enough. Indeed, on the actual layout 3NT makes. If south declares on a low heart ...
Is bridge dying? Maybe, maybe not.
I posted a chart on BridgeWinners in 2013: https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/trends-in-club-bridge/ I don't have the data in front of me, but I believe physical clubs have a slight decline the last few years, and online club games have leveled off generally, with an anomalous decline in ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Others have commented about the 2003 Long Beach NABC which was a success in my opinion even though the tablecount was relatively modest for a summer NABC. Anaheim nationals seemed to have shifted to San Diego so that may open up possibilities in the LA area notwithstanding the cited difficulties ...

Mike: it WAS higher than $600K. This information is publicly available in the Bridge Bulletin archives - March IIRC.
