How to handle "anxious" newcomers?
Mike thanks for the comments, they are so right on. I have students that are similar, but to them a 2NT is always a two minor suit (unusual notrump) hand. Likewise, opponent opens 1 heart and they overcall 1 spade (think they are responding to their partner) with a 4 ...
Do Free Plays for Winners increase attendance?
Randy - first time players at our club get a free play for future play, as well. Finds this works great. Glad you mentioned it since I think it works to get players back to your club.
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Randy, if you want bridge to grow. Get younger kids to play trick taking card games. I can't throw a ball, so you don't see me playing hard or soft ball.
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
It shows that the ACBL games are really a nation wide game to new players. It allows the ACBL to run ACBL wide games reports easier. --- I was surprised by my I/N players love to go to their bridge friends scores for the same boards using the common game ...
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Ed actually it appears (observation, there is not a way to formally measure) to be the opposite in our area. Mid size clubs having a physical site are dissolving with small community or Senior centers we one or two games a week are growing.
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Let's take a short look into the data currently and what will be available in a short time. ACBL is setting up a new club results reporting, it will provide the player the ability to review all their games reported to the ACBL. Yes I know that the current ...
Challenges and concerns for the bridge community
Is it time we really think about reorganizing the whole concept of duplicate bridge tournament structure. Do it more like poker. For example in the ACBL Land restructure our ACBL Championships. NO NABCs and no NAPs or GNTs. Championships for major events exist but with no side games, also no ...
Challenges and concerns for the bridge community
Side point: Audrey Grant is in the HoF.
How to handle "anxious" newcomers?
John at least you don't have your open game players wanting to have these players so they can have a bigger game. On Monday afternoons we have a limited game (0-500). Today was the Sr Pairs and as expected quetion "why aren't they playing in our game?" I ...
Motions before the Memphis BoD: Item 191-13
Thanks Len. Since it was my club that asked for the BOG motion to float CA team games. Others in my own district voted against it but one is a Pro player the other very tournament oriented. Jeff B, the gold may not be much but - 1. It encourages clubs ...
