The Death of 4-Session KO's
I suspect the primary culprit affecting the decline of the 4-session KO, and IMP team play more generally, is our steadily aging membership base. Look at the average age of teams entered in your next 4-session KO (I will try to do so next week at Cincinnati's Flying Pig ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
@Michael: Consider yourself surprised and wondermented (!). The ACBL is indeed incorporated in the state of New York. A quick check to the ACBL Bylaws would have provided you with the answer. It's right up front: Section 1.1: "Name. The name of the organization is the American Contract Bridge ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
The requirement that every Committee of the Board have at least 3 members is a function of New York governing law. See New York NPCL sec. 712(a) ("The certificate of incorporation, the by-laws, or the board may create committees of the board, each consisting of three or more directors ...
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
I've started or been involved with at least 6 school-based bridge clubs, and we haven't had to pay stipends for any for them. They all presented different challenges and withered on the vine for various reasons, but lack of financial support wasn't one of them.
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem

Generalizations about when volunteers can get into schools are almost impossible, which is part of the reason why it's difficult to implement a school bridge program that can scale on any meaningful level.

BOD corrections to draft minutes are due April 15th. The minutes committee needs a little time to process these changes, depending on their length and complexity, so I would expect public posting sometime thereafter.
NABC event schedule
FWIW, the BOD passed a motion in San Diego requiring Board meetings to end before the start of the first NABC event (excluding the GNT and NAP Flight A events). Ostensibly, this would remove a disincentive from someone otherwise inclined to run for an ACBL Board Member position who also ...
Vanderbilt Unpopularity?
Soloway seeding = 75% Swiss finish/25% seeding point rank
NABC event schedule
Hi Peg, The 10K Swiss runs the first Friday-Saturday, which, although not an Open NABC event, is SOME consolation to the non-seniors. So, with the switch of the Silver Ribbon to the first weekend, the only people without a top tier event to play in are non-seniors over 10K MPs ...
