Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
Welcome to Bridge Winners, Joe! The shelf life of polls and articles is usually just a few days. This thread has run its course. But the numbers are convincing. 74% prefer 1 & 7 rather than 1 & 7:30. Only 16% prefer 1 & 7:30. The rest have no opinion or ...
ACBL Elections
Best of luck, David! But every time the issue of term limits arises, it is defeated. The current ACBL President, Bob Heller, has long been an advocate of term limits. He was able to get 13+ votes to be elected President but has been unsuccessful getting the magic number of ...
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
I was informed today that the Gatlinburg Regional (often referred to as ACBL's 4th NABC), based on polling of a large number of people, will have 9 AM, 1 PM and 7 PM start times next year (April, 2018). Previously it was 9, 1 & 7:30 PM Hopefully the ...
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
Let's try to stay on topic, please. Spingold & Vanderbilt start times are the same until most teams are eliminated and screens are used. Round of 32. Regardless this poll is on changing the current 1 & 7:30 start times to 1 and 7. It has nothing to do with ...
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
The ACBL has the numbers (if they care to share the data) but I would guess the few players who play 3 sessions a day (a dwindling number) play at 9 AM, 1 PM and 7:30 PM. The change to 7 PM would not be a problem. Indeed, the ...
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
The events you are referring affect a tiny number of players and my poll/suggestion did not mean that I wanted the 12 noon start time for the premier behind screen team events to change (I thought it was noon and 6 PM?). Nor does my poll refer to the ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
It is always difficult to draw conclusion based on limited data. Still, the Atlanta Labour Day Regional has historically been a 3000+ table Tournament (low of 2,945 in 2014; high of 3,618 in 2011). The number of players winning masterpoints ranged from 1704 to 1893 (except for the ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
As several have pointed out, a poll loses validity if the question asked advocates a clear preference. Further, As Steve M wrote, who are the people responding? People who regularly attend NABCs? almost never attend?, might attend if the schedule were different? These things matter. The ACBL has had at ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
I'm curious as to why there are so many abstentions (25 at the moment). I can understand abstaining on a poll for sensitive or political reasons, or if you are directly involved, or if your knowledge of the subject is limited.. Do the people who abstained have no preference ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
The way this post is worded it is clearly biased towards changing the start times. The current schedule has plenty of options to satisfy most people. For example, even with 1 & 7:30, there are still multiple daytime Regional 10 & 3 events for those who prefer that option. 10 & 3 ...
