Advice for new club owners?
Thanks Jeff, very helpful. Re ACBL Club Manager: what value do you get in separating this from your actual club manager? We just discovered that ACBL only allows one person to be tagged as "club manager" for their purposes, and we're considering who that should be. We aren't ...
Advice for new club owners?
Thanks Randy. I like this idea of a game report/notes from director, do you do it electronically or is it really on paper?
Advice for new club owners?
When you decide to move to Eastern Canada let me know, we have a club that needs you. :) Summers are much better than Atlanta. Appreciate the info, thanks. Why the outlay of time for the monthly calendar, is that just understanding the game options from ACBL? Or formatting?
Advice for new club owners?
Thanks Morris. Your web site looks terrific! I will take a look at some of these tips. Unfortunately I have little appetite for custom IT solutions at this time, we're trying to simplify/minimize for now. Without negatively impacting our members or service levels.
Advice for new club owners?

Improving my bidding & defence skills
Defense: counting declarers hand is critical, you won't advance beyond a certain point without this skill. Try this - after every hand you defend when you write the score on your sheet, write down declarer's shape in the margin (e.g. 5=3=3=2). Initially you will forget ...
Can you beat Zia? (logic problem)
If Zia was truly partnering me he likely wouldn't waste the brain cells, reasoning that all my other decisions had been wrong so passing it to me has to be in his favor.
Can you beat Zia? (logic problem)
Ignoring the Js, Zia can have three combos: AA, AAQ, AQQ. If he has AA then he will guess 14 since from his perspective there are more combos where the missing AAQQQQ can split 8-8 vs 10-6. If he guesses 14 he's either right or wrong (Mike says he ...
Effective Training Suggestions?
I'm also very interested in this and I've been watching for responses. Since there's none so far I will keep this alive by pointing you to this prior thread: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/a-few-questions-about-partnership-concentration-and-counting/ It's not exactly on topic, but close. There are responses (Ross ...
