I think it ended by 1985. I don't believe they brought it back, but I wasn't keeping up with things in the '90s.

Don, I'm not sure about early ‘90s, I wasn’t playing then. But there was a requirement to belong to a “union” in the mid-80s. I remember joining the one run by Matt Guagliardo (sp?) ca. 1984. He had a booth set up at the San Antonio NABC (Spring '84).

Sounds like a great idea. I just donated.

That's your Unit. But you made a blanket statement (apparently meant to apply to all units) implying that it wasn't the Unit's purview, and that's not correct for all units. My unit owns the building and decided when play stopped and will decide when it will resume.

Steve, some Units run their clubs, or at least own the building. So, I think they'd have a say.

I also would have raised 1 to 2.

If partner had rebid 1N, 2 would have shown a better hand, so I would be stuck with passing or overbidding.

No, there is no way that there is 6 ft of separation. The tables are not even 6 feet long, IIRC. And if you have a 1st base and 3rd base, the dealer is no more than 2 feet away - unless he has really long arms.

RF, I agree. He might have bid if he had running s. And what finally made my mind up, if RHO has a fit and no stop, he's playing a deep game of poker by passing.

In District 10, Regional tournaments are run by the local units - not the District. The hotel/casino has let them out of their contract without any penalties and Unit 144 made the decision to cancel at this time. As President of D10, I support their decision.

The Sep 27- Oct 3, 2021 Regional will be held at the Gold Strike Hotel & Casino.

My local club is in Huntsville, AL. It closed as of Tuesday. The games are $6/person.

There are already a few hurdles to getting much local participation here:
1. Not that many local people are experienced at playing online.
2. Of the rest, some are not very computer literate. Yes, some might be willing to try.
3. $10 fee for 18 boards? That would seem like a total rip-off to them. I understand that it's a bargain for NYers, but our locals don't have that perspective.

I'm not sure why the cost has to be $10. It seems like there's enough of a cut for ACBL and BBO that the cost doesn't have to exceed $5 (could even be a little less)- and still be able to give a significant cut to the clubs. Maybe there are some other forces interceding here?
