Count the ACBL In
Kevin - I agree with that approach as well. What I am hopeful of is an unified and clear set of steps for the ACBL to take forward on. Peg & Gene - Considering that our attendance at many regionals are down, the space issue that screens present would not be terribly imposing ...
Count the ACBL In
Kevin, my good friend - I can answer partly why they are waiting until Spring 2016. The CEO might be required to run the idea of the cameras, in concert with the tech group that is modernizing the ACBL, at a formal get together (i.e. NABC) first. As it relates ...

The Videos Speak: Fantoni-Nunes
Change requires things to get a bit messy. And, change is sorely needed in our game. It is quite clear to me that the governing bodies have a lot of explaining and doing in the near future.
Did you use the recorder ? If not why didnt you do it ?
I have written more recorder memos this calendar year, then in the last 5 combined. It has been for all sorts of things. I do tho believe that in terms of the mechanics of the game itself, there maybe need to institute processes at regionals and NABC's to document ...
Why Gatlinburg?
Reasonable cost, pleasant area, and right time of year.
