about me

I recently completed six years on the Board of Directors for the Seattle Bridge Unit. I am on the ACBL Board of Governors and the Competitions and Conventions Committee. I also help manage and direct a once-a-week bridge club on Mercer Island. And occasionally I find time to play bridge too. Smile

Craig Zastera's bidding problem: A8 A932 T54 KQ54
This is an auction where if partner wants to play 3NT and doesn't have a stopper they need to check that you do.
Atlanta BOD Minutes and Exhibits
The amount of money this saves is not very much. I would prefer my board member to have a chance to watch a meeting before attending one as a member.
For the mathematically inclined and directors:
Given the response to my question, I am quite sure this policy violates the laws of bridge.
For the mathematically inclined and directors:
Out of curiosity, what was the result of calling the director mid-round to say that you were running late and the opponents were taking almost all the time? Because I certainly would be doing that a whole lot more often if I was going to get a penalty for my ...
