Looking for Strong Club systems
You mentioned Toad Club (which I was the co-creator of, as I was "The Toad"). I have an entirely new set of notes on the system I can email anyone who might be interested. Ken Schutze (the other co-creator). We won the NAPs several times playing this system.
Looking for Strong Club systems
I have all 5 of the old Danielson Relay Precision books (I thought it was planned there would be 8 but I never saw any after the first 5).

Jim Griffin's bidding problem: AT85 9865 73 AQ6
Partner had: Q9x -- AKQx K9xxxx and 6 turned out to be the winner (if you managed to get there). I secretly like the Bluhmer approach best, but that was not a bid that would have been understood at the table :-).

Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: QJ8 9 QJT97 AJ43
I've been -590 (or 690) before...and it won't be the last time I'm sure!
Frank Lin's bidding problem: A9852 QJ A962 Q3
Pass at MP, bid (vul) at IMPs...who knows? (I've been told there's a big bonus for bidding games). Partner can have way too many hands where it's cold (or not!)
