USBC Final Results For Open and Women
when the world championship for an even numbered year is transnational, so that neither a country nor a zone is being represented, then the USBC is sort of unnecessary expanding on what Adam said, the Open has decided to hold a USBC on that weird year to qualify USA1 for ...
Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
fixed $ amounts, especially if varying by event type, means board must: 0) remember the goal of coupons 1) proactively realize that a change in entry fees impacts the coupon algorithm 2) re-assess every time the entry fee(s) are changed 3) act in a timely manner quite a parlay
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
cynical devil's advocate guaranteed profitable strategy is to LOSE in the round before BRP Day 1. Then no worries about drop-in. and the BRP field surely better by having the losers enter day 1 than having players capable of 1 more win in the KO event strengthening the field ...
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
"268 blue ribbon q's" show of hands - how many remember when: * once you played in the BRP, all other Qs vanished * if you did not play in BRP, Q expired after 3 years oh yeah, far far fewer ways to earn a Q back then [i][/i]
Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC

Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
suggestion to the board - defining a fixed $value allows zero room for growth. better approach is fix a %value. best = set a $ limit on out-of-pocket expenses for juniors you won't even have to make it retroactive for when i played as a teen
Buffett Cup 2019
no direct knowledge, but since this event is supposed to be an analog to golf's Ryder Cup, i assume there is ZERO prize money
The Mysterious "Sunday Times" Article
tangent Joe Conforte brought Belladonna-Forquet (maybe also Garozzo, but i only kibitzed Belladonna-Forquet) to play the 1976 end-of-year regional in Reno Nevada. At least during the open pairs, it was Conforte playing with Belladonna and they were being filmed. I don't know if that taping was used by a ...
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
compromise during an election cycle seems bizarre. Adam, the problem I see is that the GNT partnerships and team rosters are very different from what we will see in the Soloway that said, i believe ACBL blew it with the single, extremely flawed 1-time test case. they had the double ...
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
qualification to Max's #1 there MIGHT be byes in USBC to semifinal, but that is a rare parlay. More common is bye to R16 and this year one team has bye to QuarterFinal. those byes are not obligatory and are, in most cases, independent of the number of teams ...
