Changes for All ACBL Special Games
quarter optional, top score wins most games. Some have you estimate your result closest to estimate wins the jackpot.
Changes for All ACBL Special Games
It also reduces our administration of entries. Now virtually all games at the club are one price. Prior to the change the official entry was $7, but the often played special games normally required the players to kick in another buck. We, the club, provide purchasing entries ahead of time ...
Changes for All ACBL Special Games

Sad State of Affairs
Thanks Mike for this info
Sad State of Affairs
This post shows a very sad state of affair. If I read the OP correctly our last Sunday GNT stratified open [b]club[/b] game essentially matched the District 3 GNT attendance. We had 12 tables - 4 A (includes championship and A)level teams, B had 5 teams and C ...
Is bridge dying? Maybe, maybe not.
A return to the 1960's clubs masterpoint scheme? Then big clubs got the extra ratings for teaching and novice games. Instead now the large club recruiting gets you an (or a few) Upgraded Club Championship game(s). Plus since you have larger games your top awards are larger anyway ...
Poor pair game movements
You are correct Bud, I'm not thick just can't define by 2.
Poor pair game movements
Boy I must be thick. It seems one of the easier ways to run this game is as a two 12 and a half table sections. Make both sections have an EW sitout. Best if each section will have the same table number for the sitout. Let us assume for ...
ACBL Club Appreciation Team games.
Yes it is not that difficult but to many directors it is NEW. Compared to pair games it is more than just layout a set of Howell cards or Mitchell Table mats. You have 3-way (round robins), stationaries, and a different room layout that many of our directors have neither ...
