Questions on Bridge Mates and Dealing Machines
I clean my Dealer4 between every couple of board sets. Some cards leave more dust than others. Sometimes I have to clean the feed roller mid-set. The new ACBL plastic cards seem to be the cleanest I've used, and I don't have to clean the machine as often ...

Designing a better "Ecosystem"
I'm planning to build and open a full-time club next year in Pasadena, with lots of classes and a youth bridge program. I'm doing the research and planning this year, dropping in on Honors, Robson, Oxford, Laguna Woods, InTempo, and as many world-class bridge clubs as I can ...
