about me

I was a traveling pro for what felt like decades but was really only a few years. Since 2011, I've been a full-time Tournament Director for the ACBL, traveling the American and Canadian West doing my best to help people have a fabulous time at tournaments. I still play and teach when I have the time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, biking, watching Vugraph, and (slowly) learning to cook.

Country
United States of America

Hi Debbie - yes, Zoom with video is the default, but Jan is right - we don't want a poor internet connection to exclude someone from this event.

No - the ACBL is only using genuine North Korean software in this event. Seriously though - The default screenmate chat method is Zoom. If the two team captains want to mutually agree to a different format they are welcome to.

The ACBL is narrowing down the options to maximize security, value, and ease of installation and use. An email to team captains with specifications / links / instructions will go out at or before the registration deadline. Stay tuned!

Mike - please note the difference between NABC and NABC+ events. 10K, Super Senior, and similar event winners are NABC title holders but do not qualify for GLM; Spingold, Blue Ribbon, and similar event winners are NABC+ title holders and do qualify for GLM.

Hi Debbie -- The short answer is I don't know, as I think the BW junior entry system is keyed for NABC (per person) structure rather than the per team pricing structure we have here. Maybe a BW admin would have a better answer.

Matt, Free Zoom meetings of only two people are unlimited in length.

Hi Tracy, Video/audio chat with your screenmate is the required minimum - an OTS camera is the incentivized extra security measure.

Chris - my apologies for an incorrect initial answer. This will be covered in the FAQ, but long story short yes, if both teams are happy to play at any two of those (non-overlapping) times we will be happy to make that happen over the first weekend.

No problem: here's Spingold CoC https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.acbl.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Spingold.pdf and CoC for all KOs http://web2.acbl.org/coc/KOGeneral.pdf I believe this is the current version of each. Yes - teams are 4, 5, or 6 players; each player ...

Ai-Tai - the NAOBC was designed as an attempt at a more or less break-even event for the ACBL. The event will be heavily staffed by tournament directors, security personnel, and logistics / administration staff, much like an in-person NABC.
