Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Paper or plastic?
So I bit the bullet and got the Bridge Buddy cards. Ran them through the teaching function on the Bridgesorter and had no problems reading the cards. These things are heavy .... my board case is a whole lot heavier than it was with the paper cards! Thanks for all the ...
Paper or plastic?
Thank you all for your comments. Does anyone clean their plastic cards on occasion? I've often noticed at tournaments that they do get dirty, usually spots of dirt like someone sneezed on them or such. The edges do stay nice and clean, though. Perhaps wiping them down with a ...
Paper or plastic?
I have a Bridgesorter as well. At first I was running it on a super-cheap Celeron based computer and had frequently card recognition problems. I upgraded the computer a few months ago and the problems went away!

Dealing machine issues?
Updating an old thread ... I was running my BridgeSorter on a pokey little laptop I had purchased for about $130. (I'm a Mac person and ACBLScore and dealing machine needed Windows). Just upgraded to a faster laptop ($399!) and all the problems with the dealing machine went away! Would ...
I'm a newcomer to this whole mess :-). Started my game a last year, mostly as a venue for testing my scoring software, but also to have an evening game nearby as all the other ones nearby are daytime. We usually have 6-7 tables, charging $9-$10 depending on the ...
from Jeff: " Does it require that a certain percentage of BOD members be club sanction holders?" I do believe that would be very helpful.
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thank you, Fred. You've made the world a better place.
