about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

ACBL Board Happenings
Someone recently pointed out to me the motion to get rid of extended team games held by units. Action on the motion was deferred to the summer meeting. Our unit has been holding an annual round robin and an annual knockout for a very long time. Matches are usually held ...
System notes
BBO has long encouraged pick-up partnerships in its tournaments (including the ones awarding ACBL masterpoints). I haven't picked anyone up there for years now, but when I did it was a common practice for one player to post a card for the partnership to use, and to look at ...
BBO undos
Use hand diagrams instead of pictures of cards.
Jay Whipple, the ACBL, BBO, and clubs everywhere have joined together to set up real Black Point Club games online.
Are other individual clubs ever going to be able to set up their own games, or will this be limited to a small number of clubs?
Hospital Overflow
And another problem is staffing.
I Got Coronavirus Playing Bridge
My husband has some condition (not sure which one) that causes him to have pleural effusion if he takes ibuprofen for long. Maybe that's the kind of effect they're concerned about.
Bridge Bulletin Staff Opening
Definitely no reason to be located in Horn Lake to do that (unless they're going to start holding all of the NABCs in Memphis).
Bridge Bulletin Staff Opening
I think it's reasonable for it to be one factor to consider for what it's worth, but even when I'm not forced to work at home, I work closely with people who aren't in the same location as mine and it works well.
Closing the Club an Owners Perspective
I know the synagogue we rent from isn't charging us rent while we're closed, and I haven't heard from any other church or synagogue around here that's charging rent to a bridge club while not offering space. Most of the games around here are in churches ...
Bridge Bulletin Staff Opening
AS someone who expects to work remotely for the next 4 months (along with a lot of other people), I think the requirement is silly too.
