Honolulu BOD Journal
183-12 should fail. The whole point of announcements of NT only really works properly when people always do it. As it is today I need to ask people when they don't announce it about once every 5 sessions or so. And while it is usually a 15-17 that has ...

Plus a lot of electronic devices are harder than one thinks to turn off. Like people turn off the ringer and "turn off" the phone screen, but it is still on and able to get amber alerts, presidential alerts, disaster alerts, etc. If there is one of these during a ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Fair, I'm personally more positive on the proposed change, but would not have posted without Jan's post. So maybe the negative folks feel more strongly or more moved to action. To be clear, I'm not strongly positive, but moving cost of space from hotel room cost to ...

Allow credit cards and advance entries to be sold is the obvious right fix. For that matter, you could allow after the fact billing too. ACBL members give their ACBL number to collect their masterpoints, ACBL could offer a service where they collect your bridge information and then bill the ...
ACBL Attendance Dropoff - 2016-2018
I don't know if you are intentionally misunderstanding Eric's point, but I strongly suspect based on the Canadians I know and the press about border hostilities increasing (for instance ) that the political hostility is not bridge related ...
You hold: !S87 !HAQ !DJ873 !CJ8432
If they never make doubled contracts you aren't doubling them enough. It is match points so +100 becoming +200 has a fair bit of potential value and is probably the most likely score.
