Many of your bridge players need lessons in bridge and manners. Not uncommon problem on bridge sites.

Over use of Times Roman font hard on my eyes.

This isn't price discrimination it's price gouging. Fees 2 to 4 times as high. I doubt the ACBL would be able to predict the consequences.

The biggest problem for local clubs in our area is rent and location.

If you want to be profitable you need to be able to put significantly more tables or be able to add more dates. Adding a problem at most sites.

Only one club potentially has a full-time situation the rest are at churches or community centers. The full-time possibility has new owners who have actually taken some of the dates back.

While as far as I know the area clubs show a profit, if they grow they are at risk of the rent going up.

I don't see the problem. People enjoy Gold rush. It's putting fannies in the seats. Maybe they should come up with Platinum rush for people under 10K. Just kidding, but it's not like it costs the ACBL more to give out Platinum than Gold so would seem to be a money maker.

Your not getting huge points for winning most gold rushes. Such a rule would just delay people making LM.

Just because defenders misdefended doesn't mean declarer gets to make. Neither does declarer not stating a line means they are automatically down.

There are 4 trump outstanding (possibly 4-0) and declarer doesn't even say if he's cross ruffing or pulling trump. Declarer is just asking to be ruled against.

How much will it cost the ACBL to double the number of GLM's?
ZERO, so who cares when the ACBL is blowing a million dollars every year on bonehead maneuvers that have nothing to do with bridge.

How will an electronic Bulletin help attract new members? The Bulletin is already available electronically and you need to be a member (or I assume know a member who will lend you their password) to access it.
