Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
At Orientation Week of a university in Sydney some years ago, the banner at the top of the bridge club's stall had a typo - it said Bride Club. The number of young Asian women who wanted to sign up to the Bride Club was stunning.
HCl bridge tournament @ Newdelhi, India
One of the reasons I did not go back to the HCL after coming 4th in 2017 was that a whopping amount of Indian tax (about 30% IIRC) was taken out of the prizemoney. The hospitality was absolutely outstanding. The location was a group of hotels very close to Delhi ...
Turkish Bridge Federation - 2019 European Open Bridge Championship / Kusadasi
Which week is first - the Open (as in Orlando) or the Mixed (as in previous European Open events)?
Am I qualified for anything?
You can play in the Reisinger. Anyone can. A few years ago, one of the teams in the Reisinger scored closer to zero than average. We were lucky to be one of the teams who played them on Day One before they were eliminated. You have nine credits which allow ...

How to get 600 comments
The best laid plans of Marks and men gang aft agley, and leave us nought but grief and pain, for promised joy.

European Championships current standings
I thought the WBF info is that there are 24 teams next year instead of 22, with the extra two spots coming from Europe.
Club Library Books?
The most popular (I.e most borrowed) books at the library at the Bridge club in Sydney where I direct are, from most popular to tenth most popular: 1. A first book of bridge problems by Pat OConnor which won the 2011 American Bridge Teachers Association bridge book of the ...
Procedure After Failure to Call Director
Gregory - Regarding "not calling the Director", Law 9 (part T) states that all four players are equally responsible for calling the Director in this situation, including the dummy North. You seem to put all such responsibility on South and perhaps West, which is contrary to the 2017 Laws of Duplicate ...
