about me

I am on several ACBL committees. I was on the NAC (appeals committee) from 1984 until its demise. I joined the ACBL Laws Commission in 2006. I was added to the ACBL Ethical Oversight in 2010. I am particularly proud (and mystified) about being appointed to the ACBL Goodwill committee. My hobbies include my dogs, singing, wine, and watching baseball and basketball. Member District 17 Board and ACBL 1st Alternate Director D17.

Bridge the way it SHOULD be played.
Alan has a deserved reputation of being one of the fastest top players in the world. He has a long history with Jimmy, perhaps not recently.
How Long Should the 2-team Open USBC be?
The time commitment (even at 11 days) eliminates the availability of some potential participants. This of course is in addition to the time to go to the WC if a team should qualify.
WOLD is Senior USA1
Well done!
Orlando - The ACBL Reacts!
And how! AND Niagara Falls in March. AND Detroit in March.
Orlando - The ACBL Reacts!
KC was (IMO) a nice tournament in a good venue. I loved the playing space. The two hotels were connected by an indoor walkway. The only thing I hated was the weather. So it goes.
Orlando - The ACBL Reacts!
We didn't attend in 2016 for several reasons but one of them was the location on Disney property as we knew what the ramifications were. The Marriott was a wonderful site in Orlando. I wonder why they can't go back there.
JENKINS is Women's USA2
Congratulations! Now go be lions in Lyon!
