George, you might plan to demonstrate the worth of your system using it in a match at JEC's table… or, alternatively advertise and set up a match with good opponents playing the more normal 2/1. It would be fun to watch!

Arno Weber, your comments are very rude and ill thought, reeking of a personal vendetta. Is there one? I suggest you edit or moderate. You come across as very unlikeable.

Also in Kamloops bridge is thriving! 21 tables of bridge an evening, four evenings a week is an approximate count, and on one of those evening the venue had to be made larger. There was an active teaching program, an excellent executive, and wonderful people there. It's a going concern… lots of socializing amongst club members. Most of the club members attend only tournaments in the western part of Canada, in particular, Penticton. There are a lot of newly retired professional people taking up the game.
If the atmosphere is pleasant and inviting and the game is pleasant with opportunity for advancement by caring interest of the other members, people will come.

That's why I think it would be good to make a minor adjustment to sections at a tournament…how hard could it be to just make a section that can be requested by non smokers if they want to avoid smokers?

Thank you to everyone who responded to this post. It wasn't meant to be taken trivially. I had expected more serious thought to the issue.
My own suggestion is as follows, for tournaments ie, regionals, or large sectionals: A section that would accommodate non smokers only, where one can be assured none of the opponents are smokers. And if one didn't ask to be placed in that section, or in fact, didn't care, then one would be placed anywhere, leaving those spaces available for whom the issue is a real concern.
For the local clubs, a discrete word to the offending party, to use nicorette gum for the day before they play might suffice.
For those of the responders who think I was being over sensitive, no. I ‘m speaking here of absolute stench in some of the people I’ve encountered at tournaments.
And, they absolutely don't know how they affect others, because one tends to become scent “blind” when exposed to the same odor over a long period of time.
If you are one of those people who smoke a lot at tournaments, are you aware that even if you won the whole kit and Caboodle, your number one claim to fame when you left the site would be that you stunk, … utterly stunk…

Make sure no one nominated has a criminal record … ie being a pedophile should disqualify a person from any ACBL position. Sadly, that did not happen in the past.

Partnerships are a work in progress. The initial ingredients in a partner are innate intelligence and passion for the game, and we go on from there. I was fortunate to recently find a partner who is a computer science expert, has the gift of total recall, a wonderful even temperment, studies the game, plays the cards well, and is newly retired. We started to ascend in the rankings at the club we joined, and within a few months won the club championship. Every mistake we make we correct,& we go over the hand records and discuss how we can do better next time. Every game is a happy experience.
Notice I didn't say I wanted a partner based on his bidding system or his masterpoints or his blue ribbon collection…
I value most of all that my partner is very very bright. He has no limitations.

Wrong. Don't.
Play on BBO until you find someone with whom you are compatible.

@Greg… The intermediate and advanced club on BBO, IABC, is meant for people just like you. Hondo171 teaches every Wednesday evening and would be very happy for you to sit at his table, a teaching environment. You get to play the hands, and discuss plays and bidding as they happen. You will meet friendly people at your own level and develop partnerships on BBO, and probably in real life, and improvement in play and bidding is sure to take place.
Good luck!

How do you think the stigma of the “C” word, compares with the stigma of the “P” word, Gary? Gary…??

Peg, that in itself is rude. You're depicting yourself as you are.

Ron, you are so right. Bridge winner's seems to be sinking into a toxic site. My best to you always. My husband and I enjoyed watching you play.
I wish you success in all your future tournaments.

This whole thread is disgusting. I agree with Nick. You pay officials to do their job. They did it. Finished. This thread shows that bridgewinners site is a potential threat to the whole game of bridge. Do you think I read this site and get any more respect for the game of bridge to see these rambling post game accusatory synopsis? I'm about to let bridge go…

Great answer… but in response to paragraph two.
Nerds are in, and I mean that in a nice way. Playing bridge is the best way to meet the smart guys, the ones that are the most likely to be successful. Bridge should be marketed to the gifted group at high schools, and public schools. These exist in Canada, but I'm not aware if they have these gifted programs in other countries.
