about me

Member National Ethical Oversight Committee, National Conduct Committee, Member National Appeals Committee, (before they did away with it),

member both Goodwill and Charity committees 

D20 Recorder (for many years, took a decade off, now I'm back), former D20 Disciplinary chair, playing duplicate since 1978 or so.


Personal property appraiser (real life: as in antiques road show meets hoarders)

I used to golf once a week, no longer (bad back and bad golf is a terrible combination). 

Before bridgewinners I used to do other things, but not so much any more......

Zero Tolerance question
