about me

I work for the ACBL in Horn Lake, MS.  I relocated here after spending my first 50 years on the planet in Canada.  I made this massive move either because I'm crazy or because I wanted to further this wonderful game - you decide which.  Opinions I express here are my own, not the ACBL's.

Barry, most of the information that you're asking about is publicly available information. Go to, scroll to the bottom, look under "About the ACBL". The "Financial Information" link will give you most of the answers.

You can doubt it Barry, but you'd be mistaken. It was actually "Angie" who reached out and she does it every month.
It bothers me that I can't get this stuff straight--
Mike, you might think that but you'd be mistaken. The first two words on all four charts are "Bidding agreements". The charts have absolutely nothing to do with psyches.
T- Shirt ideas(bridge)
I actually own a t-shirt that says "I may be wrong...but I doubt it." It's one of my lucky bridge shirts the other being the one that says "Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need an expert opinion."
Announcement Question
Usually it's more of a thirst for a club lead. :)
