DOES THE ACBL BRIDGE BULLETIN BELIEVE THERE SHOULD BE TRUTH IN ADVERTISING?
@Karen, wouldn't it be nice if the advertised price per night was the all in price, i.e., such price included all taxes and fees? That, would be truth in advertising.
What would you do about illegal note taking?
Geez, thanks for the heads up. I noted recently that I did not remember the exact auction and had begun to make a note of it at the table. It was not for the purpose of a playing the hand, but for the purpose of discussing the bidding afterwards. Anyone ...
Notes page for convention cards
I often take notice when I see a pair with Bridgewinners convention cards. It is especially useful in areas that I don't often play (and thus don't know the players) -- which I have been expanding. Foolishly or not, I give those with bridgewinners cc the benefit of the ...
Research on Sexism and Bridge: Have your Say
I don't know what "scientist" say with respect to the difference between women's and men's brains. Thank goodness there are physiological differences. I do know that prominent US "scientist" (from renown schools, I might add) said in 1925 that Negros (the term of the day) where scientifically ...
Research on Sexism and Bridge: Have your Say
1) What do you understand by the term ‘sexism’ in relation to Bridge? I see sexism the same in most contexts: it’s stereotyping and/or discrimination based on gender. Interestingly enough, it has been my experience that women in bridge can be equally opportunity sexists when it comes to ...
Research on Sexism and Bridge: Have your Say
@ Bill re: numbers 2 an 3....are they analogous? Men agree to play with certain women because they want sex with them...and women marry "bridge experts" because they want to play? If so, it seems, to me, that women get the better of the deal. I do note, however ...
Recent Disciplinary Actions
Does this mean that only team captains and those who surrender are subject to disciplinary penalties? Is that the message that ACBL wants to send? Is everyone else presumed to be ignorant, regardless of: years in tournament action; # of MP; years of ACBL membership? I am confused by the decision ...
Open Orlando Discussion <span>Thread</span>
@Sathya, the ACBL has not yet opened the hotels for Toronto, but several condos that I attempted to rent were already booked for the full 11 days of the tourney. Some folks apparently do plan ahead; unless Toronto has something else going on this summer.
Open Orlando Discussion <span>Thread</span>
@Elianna, for the last day of our stay (Fri) we elected not to pay the parking fees, and spend our time packing and at the movies in Disney Springs. Imagine my surprise when the parking was plentiful and close and free! The movie, one I wanted to see, was so-so ...
Open Orlando Discussion <span>Thread</span>
@Joanne, actually, other than the parking I liked the Orlando location in November! The weather was perfect. I found reasonable accommodations (2 bedroom condo for 6...which provided great opportunity to cook meals -- and cut down on costs less than 5 miles away) and easy access to the playing site ...
