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

Obtaining a silver ribbon with essentially brand new duplicate players in NABC Senior Swiss Teams; a few years later they realized the importance of the 11 Gold points they had won. Awarded Texas Star by District 16 for Bridge Contribution.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Using Excel to Run Swiss?
Good Luck. Since you made your post I too have been trying to create an Excel interface. First for 4 to 7 tables use the proven movements like discussed at the MIT site http://web.mit.edu/mitdlbc/www/contrib.html#Manager These essentially match the ones we use for ...
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Can you edit your sentence please. One of the directors in the sentence needs to be player. But to the real question in point. I created this OP because we are having real problems in getting directors for our club. Our 4 main directors live 35 - 45 minutes away without ...
Using Excel to Run Swiss?
While you are waiting for other answers let me discuss how we handle this at our club for most IMP games. First this is not Swiss but Round Robin approach, however we do awards for wins as well as overalls. We essentially bracket the game. To meet ACBL club rules ...
Card dropped on the floor
In my ACBL training the following was discussed for defender cards. Take a pass card from the bidding box have the dropper (and the declarer agreeing to the location) place the pass card at the point of the original dropped card. Then determine if it could be seen by the ...
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Jeff Why consider this group? or Why does the ACBL give Jack a cold shoulder?
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Don there has been a second shift. KO to Gold Rush pairs. My last time in Gatlinburg several years ago GR was being first introduced. Attendance was low. Now in the Gatlinburg the GRs are show large numbers. Not sure if GR help or hurt attendance but it is a ...
What's going wrong with Gatlinburg ??
Jim good questions let me try a different twist. 1. Is solitaire on a computer cards? 2. Are people wanting to play with real people an opportunity? Is BBO their answer? In our club it appears 50+ years of age and previous pinochle players get into bridge the fastest and ...
More National Events
Mike in general your thinking is right but I've found my club players in I/N games in Memphis, Nashville, and Atlanta. I live outside of Dallas, Tx. Took my sister in law and her new to bridge at the time to Washington D.C. They played KOs mostly ...
More National Events
Greg I think I'm in basic agreement with you. When I go to a NABC and see one of my club players over 199 masterpoints playing in the I/N room - I ask them why they are not playing in the Gold Rush or a bracketed event to try ...
What If Gold Rush Meant Something?
Once out of Gold Rush they can go to a bracketed event like KO or Bracketed Round Robin (a.k.a. as Bracketed Swiss). Just a reminder - before GR the bracketed KO were the place to get gold. Some larger Regionals have separate B/C events too.
