Move the Date of the Fall NABC!
Thanksgiving celebrates the day native Americans invited a group of undocumented aliens over for dinner.
Club Table Counts Revisited
I totally agree that the ACBL needs to have National Championship events for all levels of players.

There is a reason having two cards in the opponent's suit is called 'the death holding'.
