about me

Elected to ACBL Board of Directors in 2009, term beginning January 2010. Running for a third term, and if re-elected, it will be my last. Have served in bridge governance and in many volunteer positions since 1992, exclusively in District 7. Past president of Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference and District 7. Also worked in some compensated positions (primarily: D7 News editor, 2002-2013). Duke University graduate, career journalist, retired from Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Lived in metro Atlanta from 1984 until December 2011, when Barbara and I moved to Knoxville to be near our kids and grandkids.

REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Non-Life Masters are THE most grossly underrepresented on the ACBL Board of Directors. Anyone care to guess how many of our "Group of 25" (talk about high numbers ...) directly feel what 70% of our membership feels? Full disclosure: I AM a Life Master, but I do my very best to ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Jan, as usual, is correct.
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
It is so disappointing to see this post laced with such cynicism. Stop looking into the mirror, folks. My Dad walked two miles against 40 mph winds in a blizzard, uphill both ways, to school every day, too. People such as Jan and Jay and Bahar and a vast majority ...
Re: Wilmington. Tournament chair Larry Harding says that rooms -- at the bridge rate -- in fact do exist, even at this late date. Call Pam Tryggeseth at the Hilton directly (M–F, 8–4), (910) 343-6123. It never hurts to contact the tournament chair any time there is an issue with ...
Votes for Hawaii
Simply to correct misinformation and answer a question. The motion was to move the fall BOD meetings from the NABC tournament site to Horn Lake. The dates would change from the Saturday or Sunday before the tournament through Wednesday afternoon, to three or four days in early November. Board members ...
Game Of Chance? College Club Shut Down
Ben, as your ACBL board rep, I assure you we will do everything possible to get this "judgment" overturned. After all, we do have education and interaction with the real world beyond classrooms on our side. Aren't those two reasons why colleges and universities exist?
Tournament Table Counts
Maximum MPs are awarded at each individual site, regardless of competition elsewhere. This was effective Jan. 1. Schedules at so-called "split sites" don't even have to match. Another reason why, IMO, "split site" regionals = two regionals.
Tournament Table Counts
In all discussions about regionals, regardless of the topic, it would make sense to remove Gatlinburg. It indeed is a "national," and when one counts only regional tables, it is larger (per session) than almost any NABC except Las Vegas. Further, although all of the volunteers are from District 7 ...
A Director Memo?
Your District Director should be able to carry the ball on this one. He or she knows the present pecking order and who makes assignments and supervises, and who is responsible for what. Several of the comments on this post are not accurate or up to date. League employees have ...
ACBL regional attendance - evening games, especially top flight KOs and Swiss events
Believe it or not, this year's 3161 tables -- while 216 tables more than a year ago -- is the third lowest of the millennium. Atlanta's record high was only four years ago, 3618 tables in 2011. There were 3447, 3412 and 3467 tables the three years before that. Atlanta ...
