Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

Jackpots in club games - Increase attendance?
We have 3 types of Jackpots here. 1. optional 50 cents per pair; top pair gets jackpot; split on tie. 2. optional 50 cents per pair; guess you game pct. Closest gets the Jackpot. I doubt either 1 or 2 has brought in another player. 3. Summer only; (NAP months ...
World Bridge Day
Non profit, member owned.
World Bridge Day
But the AA served as a catalyst, the events would have been hard to do without an valid purpose higher than a bridge club. And the newspaper articles were AA generated.
World Bridge Day
Don, it may be one way but has some success at our club. First year we held games outside the club at a college and in a restaurant during meal time. Got two new players both from restaurant. Every year during the afternoon game a member of the Alzh. Assoc ...
For Club Managers
Jeff and Joel et all maybe ACBL is doing this all incorrectly. Let me see your comments. STAC, ACBL-wide and InstMP should be like the Club Appreciation in October - A treat for the clubs and no extra charge? Or run like the Reach - players wanting the extra points pay extra ...
For Club Managers
The question may become does the size of the club or make up of the game matter? To really get more masterpoints often players want to go to the clubs making the minimum number of tables and having lots of weak players, not to larger clubs with lots of very ...
Replace SAYC
Don't know which bridgewinner article I should put this in. A little over 20 years ago the club where I now direct was going down hill fast. We used EasyBridge! Club still operating today. Some points: - EasyBridge! is designed to teach pretty close to SAYC. - Our drop out rate ...
The Death of Teams
Thanks for the comments Mike. I had heard it played the way you described. However, looking at ACBL live for the St Cloud tournament, almost if not all players had for the same session two different masterpoint values.
The Death of Teams
I realize I maybe wrong in reopening this topic area. But some other people have mentioned District 16 tournaments and I want to discuss two. My Unit's Regional and our club's sectional. The sectional was this last week-end. Teams evets in both of these tournaments 1. Made up ...
Four Table Mitchell?
Wow you got that to work Did something very similar once and our club’s most experiened player couldn’t find the right place. Of course ihe is a smoker and had returned from smoking and each time I got lost trying to find his table. His mind like other ...
