A Recommendation for USA Bridge
I think you significantly undermine your argument when you ascribe motives to the BOD members who voted for the Honolulu site without more than conjecture on your part. In particular, I think that attributing “self-interest of a paid trip to paradise” as the most likely reason that the BOD members ...

@steve, not placing blame, merely apportioning it more aptly. I understand that the loss was acknowledged with the choice of sites. I find the real chutzpah being Gary’s post that the membership paid for a holiday for the wealthy.
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
@Peg, my reply was in response to Gary’s initial post which stated that the membership was subsidizing the wealthy participants to the tune of $$$ dollars. I merely pointed out it was not the participants that caused the loss...and his piling on of those who decided to go was ...

And what was the subsidy to us regular, could never be confused with wealthy, folks? The loss was the loss. It is far more attributable to those who did not attend than those who did.
Honolulu BOD Journal
Ok...I truly am in another camp on this one. And although most are piling on on the District Directors (DD) in this regard, I choose not to. Why consider the trip to Hawaii a junket? I believe my DD has EARNED the trip. I am just one of more ...
Honolulu BOD Journal
@randy...or those seeking competent partners (or teaching opportunities) at compatible rates, would not have to work very hard either. I find it hard to fathom that the majority has not spoken up! But perhaps the majority is the rich majority....and if you have to ask the rates, you ...
Honolulu BOD Journal
@Randy, more importantly than Michael's rate(s)...why is there not a central data base to indicate the pro's rates....as well as his/her per diem and extras? It has been my perception that it is not only the ACBL that is not being transparent ... or does ...
Honolulu BOD Journal
I don't think the proposal applies to Hawaii...and the ACBL is not going back. The proposal, if approved, will apply to the locals in other places....and generally, there should be a substantial number of them....who should also pay the cost of the playing facility. In short ...
Honolulu BOD Journal
The proposal was not only to encourage folks to stay at the host hotel...but also to spread the costs for space for those who do not stay at the host hotel. If the ACBL is going to spread the pain, then spread the pain. If you are not staying ...
