about me

I started playing Bridge seriously in 2006, after almost 40 years of playing once a year. and 21 months of playing once a week (plus local Sectionals and Regional)

Besides playing, I am a certified ACBL Club Director and now direct a small weekly evening game and maintain its Internet presence (posting results, Facebook page)

In 2013, I became coordinator of the Intermediate-Novice lectures presented at my Unit's weekly Unit Game, and a frequent lecturer there. I also often lecture at my Unit's Sectionals, and the local Regional.

In 2015, I became a certified Learn Bridge in a Day? instructor; in 2016 a certified EasyBridge! Instructor.

I have taught in a local Bridge in Schools program, and at a local Country Club. I also teach small groups in their homes, including supervised play, and I am available for playing lessons.

I have served on my Unit's Board of Directors since 2014 in a variety of volunteer positions, and also serve my District as a volunteer dealing with tournament supplies and equipment.

In 2016, I started the Newcomer Game 0-20 MP Section at my Unit's weekly Unit Game, I present most of the pre-game lectures and direct most of the games; we are averaging five tables each week in 2017; several pairs have "graduated" to the 199er section. 

In 2017 I joined the Bridge Heroes team for The Longest Day, happy to do my part to help fight this terrible Alzheimer's disease andother dementias which have affected so many.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

But the point of my comment is the reaction of the littles and bigs among the cards to the questionable ethics of the player.

Save Bundy's Sanity
The opponents should have been playing in your "relaxed rules" section and not in the "serious competitors" section where you were sitting! -- or were you in the wrong section? Oh -- we don't have those separate sections. Another of your "brilliant ideas (heh heh heh), it seems to fall on ...
Ramblings on the future of our game
Do they know how Honors does this on a relatively micro-level? Do you think the success you experience in Manhattan scales up to all of North America?
Summer NABC Wrapup
ACBL's attitude toward you has taken a major change in the time since the end of the Hartman reign as CEO. Is it still too dangerous to comment on how and why this change on their part? If not, I expect you'll have enough to say for a ...

Link posted on Facebook and shared with my Unit and th Clubs where I direct -- "another good reason to teach Bridge to youngsters"
Does the ACBL need more Washrooms at NABCs OR should players be kicked out of tournaments with cause?
Good Director Story
Tom A, I believe the technical medical term is "Cranial Flatulence."
Two Hour Bridgescore+ Training Class on Tuesday and Wednesday in Atlanta
My two guesses why Nic is never in trouble at Gatlinburg: 1. has Bridgescore+ on computer on-site 2. has ACBLscore running in parallel on another computer, has been importing gamefile from BS+ after each round of the Swiss, just switches over to ACBLscore
