about me

As a bit of trivia, together with Donna Compton practicing as Compton & Compton PLLC, we have represented more ACBL members before Ethical Oversight and Attorney Discipline Committee than any other lawyers. To give fair disclosure, this is about 15-20 cases, lifetime.

Also see www.playbetterbridge.com, for video clips and short PDF's of various bridge topics. 

We own the Bridge Academy of North Dallas which was the 13th largest ACBL club in 2017. see www.bridgeindallas.com 

Together with Gary King of Houston, we operate two bridge land cruises a year, one held in August in Santa Fe NM and one held in May in Galveston TX, see www.ulimatebridgevacations.com

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A provisional Membership
Why in the world would we do an online version only? Why not try to be customer friendly? Right now across several districts there are ugly battles about publishing the district publication online only.
A provisional Membership
Jeff, presently “Bridge Life” (link below, used to be “Bridge A-Z”) is something that is not mailed but is available for new members — mailed for free from League upon request to clubs. It is not published monthly, but redone every few years. We switched to giving this out to new ...
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
I am lost. Teachers and clubs do a better job recruiting new members than units, Districts, the BOD and Management — all combined. Clubs and teachers could do a better job — with advertising support —- how about a television spot produced nationally with local market ad time placement funded by Units and ...
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
24 days per year of closure of our club per year equals approximately $40K annually in lost teaching revenue and card fees. More revenue is lost after the tournament than is gained in the week prior.
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
Sabrina, The ACBL BOD started clubs looking at the money flow when they raised club and STAC sanction fees by nearly %25 — and cut the Coop advertising rebate by 50% — all in a blatant attempt at recovering a disproportionate amount of the 1.8M Hammond Services Technology Contract loss — from ...
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
In other words, its the NABC’s that need players worse than Jeff Bayonne — but he loves creating new players.
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
Ray, the League needs to support the clubs better for its own long-term membership health. You are hearing “the clubs need our help,” but the League needs successful teaching programs to add a large number of new players so that sectional and regional outliers will “out.”
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
Ray, Starbucks does franchise stores. https://www.quora.com/How-much-does-a-Starbucks-franchise-cost. Really though, was that the point of the post?
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
Its the League that needs new players at clubs to spin off outliers who will move on to sectionals and regionals. Its not as if players can start at sectionals. The clubs with.teaching programs will always have new players — its the League that needs the clubs.
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
Bridge clubs will be fine, its the ACBL that is losing its value and importance. The League must help itself by creating more games players.
