Open San Francisco Discussion Thread
The host hotel Marriott Marquis provides excellent service. For those with Marriott Bonvoy status, the M lounge open 24/7 is outstanding. The B2 playing area temperature was much more comfortable yesterday. Only downside when staying at large host hotels are the elevators during "rush hour". While there are 6 ...
ACBL Reorg Fails by One Vote.
There are always reasons to say no and maintain the status quo. Kevin Lane was another disappointing no vote. All ten Board members who voted no have their reasons but the bottom line is that a proven dysfunctional failed governance model remains. Every consultant the ACBL Board has hired has ...
ACBL Reorg Fails by One Vote.
As a Canadian, I was very disappointed to hear that Leo Weniger, Paul Janicki & Claire Jones voted no. Congratulations to the new D. 19 Board member Julie Smith who voted in favour. Regarding Canadian separation this has been an on and off topic for decades. The reality is that while ...
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
Shuffling the chairs on the Titanic, moving players from one event to another. Not a viable solution.
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
There are several distinct issues. 1) Masterpoint Inflation. "We" all remember when you could only win fractions of a masterpoint at the club level. Once a month there was a special "Masters" game where the winners received one full masterpoint. It meant something! In 1985, 15 players surpassed 1,000 ...
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
Masterpoint inflation is a given and that's the way of the world. My concern is that there is little logic, fairness or equity in the ACBL masterpoint payouts among different events. A very different issue than inflation. I have written about it and lobbied the ACBL Board multiple times ...
BOD Restructure Vote
Not sure how accurate that chart is but it is a well known fact (at least to Canadians) that about 90% of the population live within 160 km (100 miles) of the US border.
BOD Restructure Vote
I strongly endorse this proposal and urge my District 2 representative Paul Janicki, who is retiring in 2020, to vote in favour. It may not be a panacea but the ACBL must move forward. There are only 13 people who get a vote in San Francisco. Posting here is fine ...
Colour Coded Playing Cards
Playing in the Blue Ribbon Pairs at a St. Louis NABC last Century I picked up a balanced 20-21 HCP hand and opened 2NT. As the auction progressed I realized I was actually 5-5-0-3 in some pattern! Later that evening, my roommate, Darren Wolpert, walked in and said "you won ...
Colour Coded Playing Cards
It is not just visually impaired or colour blind people who mis sort their cards. Most everyone I know, including myself, who have excellent vision, have discovered that a "heart" spot was a actually a Diamond, or even that the Heart Ace became the Diamond Ace when the dummy was ...
