ACBL's Future 2020 & Beyond (San Francisco NABC Report)
Sounds like you are speculating that climate was a factor in people's decisions. It would likely be quite expensive to cancel last minute due to weather considerations, but it would also likely be easy to quantify.

How can it possibly be "affordable" for everyone?

@Jonathan: you wrote "very affordable!" I ask: for whom?
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
@Barry: I am not equating ACBL fees with taxes, just saying that they are similar. As far as payment for services, taxes can be viewed that way as well. My property taxes go to pay for the services provided by the town in which I live.

Doesn't a portion of every entry fee in an ACBL event go to ACBL? They call it a sanction fee, but it is very much like a sales tax.

@Ken, ACBL was inflexible. Amir had to pay three years in advance just like he was told. I don't see anything approaching a sea-change.

So, when you said "This time when my membership ends, they can be assured that I will not be rejoining for the rest of my life." you didn't really mean it?

So, the best way for players to maintain their Gold Rush eligibility is to stop paying dues?
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Am I to understand correctly: ACBL charges a non-member surcharge of a few dollars per session when a lapsed member plays in a tournament and then requires three years of membership paid in advance (thus assuring the surcharge will not be paid for three years) to "release" any masterpoints won ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Non-member points are surely recorded, at least for lapsed members. Why the ACBL won't record points for everyone is beyond me; everyone who ever plays ought to be assigned a player number. Whether ACBL ever reveals the records for those who don't pay dues is another matter.
