about me

Trying to do what's best for the game, often by clearing up misconceptions and misinformation.  All opinions are my own and reflect no bridge organization or group.

Past: Served for 9 years on ACBL BoD, 4 years as BoG chairman, lifetime member of BoG, 9 years on D19 board, almost every unit job from grunt labor to unit president.  Proudest bridge admin experience was being "first spouse" to a great BoG chairman.

Current: Retired, but sharing my experience and knowledge.

Country
United States of America

None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Does anyone know what time it is?
All of which drives home the crucial question: What are regional tournaments (and by extension, sectionals) created to accomplish? Answer that, from the perspective of both players and administrators, and you're a long way towards deciding if a 500 table regional is "wrong" or "right". And don't forget ...
World Bridge Day

Tom - you are one of the fortunate clubs.
BoG motion: Improved data analysis support to ACBL

World Bridge Day
If it gives WBF officials an opportunity to jet around the world, making "arrangements" and having "signing ceremonies", I know they will be on it in a flash. As to whether a self-designated day would increase awareness, let's just ask how many of you were aware of World Whisky ...
BoG motion: Improved data analysis support to ACBL
David - Are you asking the BoD to create this committee? I say this because if you are asking for a BoG committee to be formed, it can be done by the power of the Chairman, Richard Popper. Now, if you are wanting for this BoG committee to have specific reporting ...
Web Movement?
GG - Thanks for confirming my memory. I only knew him through NABCs, not like I ran into him on a regular basis.
Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
The Nigerian 419 scams go back decades. Used to recieve them at one company I worked for in the early 1990s - they came by postal mail in those days - and they actually had to invest in paper, envelopes and stamps. We kept them in a file in a filing cabinet ...
Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
There is an interesting balance since the ACBL is a membership organization. There is a need for members to be able to communicate with those who serve on unit and district boards.
