Let's be fair. You should have said “They tried Winnipeg in the Winter”. Somewhat akin to “Minneapolis in the Winter”.

Interesting to have an international fugitive as the cover story.

Why did an old Bartles & Jaymes commercial just flash through my mind?

The operators of ANY online forum can “hack” into every user's account. Does anyone think that FB, Twitter and all the rest are completely secured from anyone else accessing your accounts?

Well, if they were to fire anyone, let's be sure that Linda Dunn verifies that all the proper procedures have been followed. By now, she should know how to do that.

An announcement on April 1st. Coincidence? You decide.

From that article:

“You have to follow HIPAA laws – even during a pandemic”

There you have it, folks.

FYI -

Colorado Springs is in El Paso County, Colorado
Tucson is in Pima County, Arizona

So is the news from Colorado or Arizona?

I keep being reminded of medical malpractice trials. Each side brings to the stand their “experts” to testify, and it's left to the jury to determine which of the “experts” to believe.

We continue to get conflicting testimony, even from the same “experts” who say one thing in one venue and another in a different (ie Fauci and WHO).

I think it is fair to remember that these games are designed for a couple of purposes. IMO, those are:

Provide a revenue stream in the absence of F2F games, and

Help to maintain the interest of the marginal player in the game of bridge.

Please Note: I use the word marginal in the economic sense, not in terms of bridge ability. These are the non hard core players, who can take the game or not. The concern over losing the “addicts” is far less than losing those who might say “well, if I can't play bridge, I'll take up something else”. Those we need to keep for any return to F2F club games.

Far down the purposes list is “provide an equivalent bridge experience to F2F games”.

Happy to hear that Ellis. That's a far cry from a district director that walked out of a BoD discussion about tax matters so that she could plausibly say “well, I don't know anything about that” as her district operated under some questionable practices. (Fortunately no longer on the BoD).

For many many years now, all GNT reimbursements/payments were the domain of each respective district. So your money came from your district, not the ACBL.

From my experience, many if not most districts are absolutely lax in regards to taxation issues. Lots of cash disbursements without regard for reporting, receipts or other documentation. And units are probably even worse.

I wonder how many are even filing their 990s.

You mean we should have….gasp….a contingency plan??

There you go again with your radical thinking.

OTOH, if a concern is member retention with club play shut down, the Bulletin might help keep bridge at top of mind by continuing to show up in the mailbox.

There's also that matter of setting a direction.
