World Bridge Day
Tom Moore, The Alzheimer's Association did nothing for your Club. Your members did it all. Bahar Gudwani stated that he re-negotiated the agreement with AA and there were some (unstated) benefits to the ACBL. I'll wait until I learn what those benefits might be. We should engage with ...
Image, the business of bridge, the ACBL, and pride.

But is bridge Fun?
Thank you all for your thoughtful comments. My original question dealt with the use of the word Fun to describe bridge. If we are promoting a bridge activity (tournament, lessons, Club, etc) can we come up with words that are more effective, that have more texture, that motivate and inspire ...
Board Journal for Atlanta
There are two interesting Cost-Savings Items on the agenda. Newly elected BoD members are currently invited to attend the Fall NABC and their expenses paid; in the same manner as sitting BoD members. Item 182-48FI waives that provision of the ACBL Codification. Item 182-64GO - Shortens the period during which the ...
Club Play #2...Poll.
A 40% response rate for the first 12 hours seems pretty high to me. I'd give it another 3 days before complaining.
For Club Managers
Jeff, I think my comments are clear. Further, I'm not suggesting, implying or in any way discouraging Clubs from running STaC events.
For Club Managers
Comment #1 - STaC's were created so that in the less-densely populated areas of ACBL-land, players would have an opportunity to earn Silver MP's without driving 6 hours to the nearest Sectional Tournament. It takes 75 Silver points to earn Life Master. It is easy to see that the ...
LBIAD
If our objective is to manufacture Duplicate Bridge players, then success would typically be measured in ACBL memberships and additional tables at Club games. If we aim to manufacture happy bridge players, then we need to integrate them into local social bridge groups. If the instructors only have connections to ...
Replace SAYC
Each person who teaches Bridge should define what constitutes success. If the goal is to add ACBL Members, then that would be a very different path than a goal of teaching people to play bridge. It is my belief that social/rubber bridge players only play one convention. They may ...
Replace SAYC
The SAYC card is fine for many players. We don't need any changes to it. If you are not familiar with the ACBL's Fat-Free convention card, take a look: http://www.acbl.org/tournaments_page/general-information/convention-cards/ We encourage all newby's to try the fat-free card.
