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.

Puzzled by Evening Swiss Ruling in San Francisco
And Dick Stuart had a personalized plate for his car that read "E3".

Richard....I think you misconstrued something. I am very much for the equal and consistent application of rules and regulations, as written. And officials that do not do so are not on my "nice" list this Christmas.
