The Huntsman Games
Jeff, as I understand it, they're running this three-day event as a STaC game (silver points) with open and 299er sections (single sessions) followed by a Swiss teams on the third day. If so, it sounds as if their clientele are existing members.
The Huntsman Games
I suppose we could publish a reminder about the event every year. And a reminder about the Gatlinburg Regional every year. And a reminder about the Las Vegas Sectional every year. And a reminder about all the other regionals and sectionals every year. There wouldn't be much other content ...
The Huntsman Games
The Bridge Bulletin published a piece about this, but it was 20(!) years ago, in the Feb. 1999 issue, on the occasion of bridge being included for the first time in the games.
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?

Fixed, thanks David.
I Don't Understand This
There's really nothing to discuss. We can (and do) always include the names of deceased members (whether they are current on their dues or not), but we are dependent on family/friends/clubs/units to tell us. Just like your local newspaper, the staff isn't omniscient; someone has ...
I Don't Understand This
Hi Steve, I'm not sure why we didn't get your wife's information, but I will list her name in the next issue. (This situation happens a lot: A member is ill for a long period of time, their membership lapses, and they pass away; we don't ...
I Don't Understand This
Family members, friends, or club/unit officials may all report a death, but we have someone on staff who verifies this by researching local records (newspaper obits or funeral home postings). So, yes, we prefer if the person who reports the death can point us to something that confirms it.
