Between now and then we plan to have a good time and win a few events.

Hampson-Greco told me that they will be playing with the Nickell team as of July 2020. This was very disappointing as they are great players and terrific teammates and friends.
We are thrilled, however, that Thomas Bessis and Frederick Volcker have agreed to join Chip Martel, Brad Moss, Joe Grue and me.

It's strange that the ACBL singles out the NAP and GNT as things in which players not in good standing cannot compete. Why can those players enter, say, the platinum pairs and the Vanderbilt.

ok, this is my last response to this sort of thing. I frankly no longer care about the substance of the issue. But I totally object to all this griping. the numbering below corresponds to the mike's post.
1. No, we did know about this procedure. I think it would be a good idea if Mike or Peter briefs each new board on these long-standing procedures.
2. see 1. I doubt active members even know the ITC exists.
3. we responded to what we believed members wanted and our judgement what was good for bridge. If you would like to be on the board you can certainly now have my spot.
4. what makes you think it was a rush? we spent lots of time on it. this is the same as 1.

why would we have changed them if not in response to requests of the players? So that brad could drop off our team if we win and play in something else (now that you mention it, Joe said he liked playing with Anam . . .)

If Mike wants to argue that doing what we did violates the USBF bi-laws I'm ok with that (but this doesn't I'm sure). But to say that we shouldn't have done it because of some agreement between an old USBF board and ITTC and embodied in minutes during the founding of the republic makes no sense to me. I'm happy to have a discussion about substance but not about precedent.

i understand your point, but we plan on doing this and perhaps a
broader consensus will emerge. in the meantime, we really need your input on how to implement this change.

well, this is the first I have heard of this. if what you are saying is that the only prohibited dropoffs are for people being paid to drop off, it is possible the board could go along with it. however, it still involves substantial investigation into facts (and maybe motives) that we were trying to avoid

and that would satisfy one of the objectives of the change. however, it would not satisfy the other which is to make the USBCs an event in and of themselves which you can play in without fear it commits you for 2 weeks in a place you don't want to go or which you can't go for professional or family reasons.

Yes, in fact the ITTC-TAC is responsible for dealing with the kind of scenario, although I view it as unlikely. Maybe the new rules will not work out and we will change them again. But for the moment, we are asking for your help in implementing the new scheme, whether or not it is your choice.
We are grateful (in advance) for your work on this.

I'm fairly certain its not important in our partnership, since I never learned what it is!

Can't agree with Brad more. A great partner and team and beating the class of the bridge world in the finals.

I dont think the problem exists or if it does is extremely minor. I favor getting rid of it.
