League nights
While I agree the math works, the club perspective is one of those away games may result in a player of your club deciding he or she likes the other club better and or that playing at multiple clubs is nice and they decrease the number of times they play ...
League nights
From my limited experience of only playing for 5 years and running a club for 4 years, clubs my area are too greedy to think about letting 1 player play somewhere else other then their club. They have zero long term thinking for how to increase profits or the will ...
questions for club owners
1. Unit 171, we have a new president. Things still are not great, but a vast improvement. Prior, the previous two presidents, their mantra was to destroy our club. The unit acted as a protectorate of the two largest clubs in the unit. It would appear their goal was to ...

FOREX Challenges
Ray, from your comment above, my guess would be you are the typical player that results in new players never returning to the table. I think I have a pretty good handle on how to improve the FX C$ function at ACBL, but no way to tell for sure without ...
Teaching online the way I teach live
Yes, BBO combined with Skype is a great way to offer online lessons, and you can have up to 4 students at a time. I take lessons this way.
FOREX Challenges
I don't see how we can actually provide a well planned solution to the ACBL without direct insight to current banking C$ vehicles, methods, levels and fees. We could offer to put a 3 person group together and go to ACBL HQ for a sit down, or I guess ...
