Teaching Lessons During Bridge Games
We have a similar problem at our club that is also run as a member-owned, not-for-profit entity. The various constituents, ie.

Club Table Counts
Alan, It was sometime in 2017 that the ACBL changed their fee structure. Instead of charging a fee for the game plus a per table fee, they eliminated the game fee and instituted the $1 per table inclusive. Most special games are an additional $1 per person, or $5 total ...
Club Table Counts
I'm club manager for two clubs and in both cases, the table count for all games held (GNT, NAP, STaC, etc.) is recorded by the ACBL.
Attracting New Bridge Players - What Works and What Doesn't?
Fargo, season three in 2017, featured a bridge pro and had scenes at a Regional Tournament in Minnesota. Episodes had bridge themes such as "Principle of Restricted Choice" and "Law of Vacant Places."
