Am I Incorrect - OR .....
Within the last few years I was playing in a NABC+ event. 2nd second session. We had a Director call 2nd round (failure to Alert by both sides) (The auction had gone 1C by LHO Dbl by pard (not alerted - shows 15+ any dist) RHO bid 2H and I had ...
Traveler View - negative good will for the club?
Swiss Pairs is always barometer. I wish ACBL would try a one day Swiss Pairs at an NABC, but ACBLscore does not have scoring for European Style Swiss Pairs.
Traveler View - negative good will for the club?
I feel bad at the club (just the % is shown) for the players who think they have high scores the first 4 rounds or so and then can’t figure out at the end of the day why their game is in the 40’s%.

Part of the problem is with so many bridge players at the host hotel, most of us have elite status. I think OnPeak should have our numbers to send to he hotel so those with highest level get proper customer service. We never get a king bed when we come ...
Long Ago and Far Away
I made a motion in a BOG meeting that we should have a “Director Memo” like the player memo system for lots of reasons many of them positive. I think 3 people at the meeting supported my motion. I made the motion within the last year.

John - Dummy can call the Director if 1. An irregularity occurs then 2. Another player calls attention to the irregularity and does not call the Director Hopefully I have paraphrased what you said. A pet peeve of mine when dummy is players that won’t release their cards onto the ...
How I would revise our NABC Tournaments
Ed - Gatlinburg is unique. Has surpassed several NABC table counts. I think the closest we come Regional wise in the West is possibly Palm Springs that has made it to about 3,000 tables. Since Gburg is so successful, it seems obvious what the players want- super inexpensive. A lot ...
How I would revise our NABC Tournaments
David - Which is EXACTLY why ACBL headquarters should have moved to Vegas (they could have gotten a nice piece of property at that time) when they left Memphis and decided on Horn Lake. Blame the BOD for that one. The local volunteers in Vegas are worn out - if headquarters was ...
How I would revise our NABC Tournaments
Sorry Ray - was my fault. Original article is back here - copy still in BOG Forum. I ninja hid the other comments so it is a fresh article in BOG.
