A Modest Proposal for ACBL Masterpoints©

A Modest Proposal for ACBL Masterpoints©In the style of A Modest Proposal For preventing the Children of Poor People From being a Burthen to Their Parents or Country, and For making them Beneficial to the Public anonymously written and revealed by Johnathon Swift. This is satire.

I recently made silver master and came to realize the extreme amount of money and time spent accumulating points. I thought there could be a better way

How bout everybody gets points when competing in a ACBL club game our tournament. Often people compete and spend a lot of money and get no points. Friends kids when they play sports get participation awards. Why not give participation mp awards in the ACBL? The award would be fraction of what the people. It costs very little for the ACBL to give out extra points so this is a low cost way to please clients.

You could also increase the masterpoint© awards for people who earned them legitimately so they will feel they earned extra. Add new Ranking levels or increase the requirement for Life Master etc to reflect the extra points in the system.

If you made the participation points pigmented then you might be able to make LM just be participating. Wouldn’t that be great and cheaper than hiring a pro.

Steve
