My unit currently pays our monthly fees via check as it has for many years, written on the clubs bank account. ACBL tried to make us pay via CC about a year ago and I refused their request as our unit does not posses a unit CC. I'm not sure what our Board of Directors will choose to do if/when is becomes mandatory. Our unit is a not for profit unit, so asking a member to place a CC on file is not an option in my opinion.

The Gulf Coast Bridge Association located in South Mississippi charges $7 per game with no extra fee for special/extra point games. The club also provides snacks and coffee at no additional charge. The building is club owned and was built in it's current location after Hurricane Katrina destroyed our old club house in 2005. Tuesday and Thursday games are normally 12-15 tables, with Saturday games averaging 4-5 and our 0-100 Monday game averaging 6-7 tables. Lessons are offered on multiple days of the week. We do not charge an annual membership fee.

STaC Fee $7
Sectional $11

Paul, you are correct regarding the facility. It is without doubt one of the nicest places to play bridge I've ever seen. However, you failed to mention the $25.00 annual membership fee and the fact it is community owned. Additionally, Mobile now charges $5 and $6 dollars per game with nothing extra for snacks. The Mobile club owns their club house and is responsible for those expenses.

Geoff,
I did not mean to imply that I did not understand Justin and Kevin's reaction to the accusation. After a 33 year career in law enforcement and having suspects attempt to play with my mind, I only hoped the U.S. pair would see this for what I thought it was. I hoped the pair would proceed with the steely determination needed to overcome the accusation and play up to their normal standards.

I was watching this on video when it started. My first thought was do not fall into the trap. They are trying to get inside your heads. I still believe this to be true as. Bathurst seemed visibly upset to me.

Of course professionals are treated differently at the table. I've never seen a ZT violation levied against a professional even when deserved.

Ray, Gene my experience with the arbitration process is that it acts like an appeal. In other words a decision had been reached and one party is appealing/arbitrating that decision. I am a retired law enforcement officer with 30+ years on the job, and I believe, that most individuals tried today in criminal courts are in fact guilty. However, I am not foolish enough to believe that all convicted persons actually committed the crime. The appeals process is made for these people. I believe the issue with a bridge arbitration process would be an attempt to keep the issue out of U.S. civil court and would be legally binding on all parties as long as it was a condition of contest. Arbitration is a legally recognized system of adjudicating issues without involving the court system.

As a newer bridge player, I was very surprised to hear there had been “whispers” about some of these pairs for years. It seems to me the NBOs would be much better served by putting a plan in place to catch cheaters first.

Well said Mr. Roman. I do believe Mr. Watzdorf is correct in one respect. I doubt the bloodletting is finished. I believe there are more pairs to come.

To ever be allowed back they must come completely clean and describe their cheating methods.

The NYT, once one of America's greatest, if not the greatest newspaper is a mere shell of its former self. In fact, according to whom you believe, the NYT is failing badly. So it is all about the money, and for my money I would say simply, goodbye NYT.

As a newer player, I read the casebooks in an attempt to learn this game, it's rules and the ethical thing to do when something happens.
