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.

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ACBL non-member masterpoint policy
And, at one time, that was limited to the prior 12 month timeframe. Not sure if that still applies or has been recinded.
Three Card Majors
Sam has WAY too much time on his hands.
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
You know...between Jeff and Mike, we see a HUGE reason why there shouldn't be a dedicated allocation of any kind of board seats to "stakeholders". Why, you may ask. Both have, in these recent posts, highlighted the inherent conflict of interest between a club owner and the ACBL ...
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
Anyone who thinks that one can neatly separate "bridge business" from "business decisions" has a simplistic and naive view of the ACBL in my opinion. I forsee nothing but "turf wars" to come from that division. I think you should understand that better than most, Stu.

Ray: I have always felt that the circular (and incomplete) referencing in the CDR was designed to allow it to be read in whatever fashion is desired at the moment.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Michael K: It's an open secret - was the reason he was expelled for a second time.
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
Your comment #3 is very critical. Further, for as bad as the current situation may be, I truly fear for when name recognition (reinforced by appearances in the Bulletin) becomes the primary reason why people are chosen to the BoD. Put it this way...Joe Schmoe is an amazing talent ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
And so, cold-decking in a Swiss as done by Steve Sion would be a different case because there is no "collusion". Same with gaining access to hand records in advance of an event. It's amazing to me how so many folks want to make this more and more restrictive ...
Memphis Report from BOD Member, District 17
Mike is from District 7, not district 17.
Not Losing Money on NABCs
BY: Not being on the BoD, I can't answer that question. Left the BoD at the end of 2015. SM: Joe Jones is the ED and the CFO. The "Treasurer" is elected by the BoD from their membership. I believe that to be Claire Jones, but I could be ...
