It is refreshing to read such a candid summation of the state of the union from a departing MBO President. The EBU equivalent leaves later this year (after 6 years in post, I believe) and it will be interesting to see if he is equally candid.

It's nice to see these reports if only to remind me that IMO they shouldn't exist in the first place. Appeal panels are almost always flawed in that the participants are rarely up to speed and I much prefer the WBF way of doing things

@Ronald: Your profile states, “BTW the NBB is the second largest bridge association in the world!” FYI NNB is the third (or even 4th) largest BA in the World!

Chris: It is a site which lists in a user-friendly way current and future bridge championships. It has a good search facility - choose any or all of date, location, event, etc. ‘A labour of love’

…find great bridge events to possibly play in.

I guess the appeal to those in USA is de minimis but for ROW, especially Europeans, it is welcomed. At least it is by me :)

Perhaps a more interesting question is…How many World Class players are there?

IMO Keep Bridge Alive is a wonderful initiative and should be supported by all bridge lovers

In my view, age limits and term limits are a good thing and a 20-24 person WBF Exco is not a good thing

In the space of a month or so, JG broke a 19-year-old ACBL MP record (well played and congratulations Joe) and Derek Oram broke a long-standing English Bridge Union MP record:

“Sometime in November last year, quite probably unbeknownst to those playing, Derek Oram broke a very long-standing record, becoming the top masterpoint scorer in English history. John Durden, who sadly passed away in 2005, had built up such a huge lead at the top that it took over 13 years to catch him up.

Masterpoint records from the early years are unfortunately a little patchy. When they were digitised in the 1990s, they went on to the new database in one big lump, so we have no way of knowing, for example, who was #1 in 1985. But from the data we have available, it seems likely that John had held the number one spot for at least 30 years, and it may well be longer.”

‘In his (Alan Hiron’s) obituary in The Independent, his friend, the colourful Irish player Des Deery, describes an incident in Prague, in which I was the sober driver of a small car containing at least seven drunken bridge players. We were stopped by the police, and the only official looking document I could produce was an EBU Master Point certificate. After perusing it the bemused policeman allowed us to drive on. According to Alan, that was the sole recorded occasion of the Master Point scheme having any practical use.’

Whatever their nicknames, now that they are long retired I can finally admit that they were a seriously talent cricketing family.
