questions for club owners
1. Unit 140 mostly concentrates on running their 4 sectionals and 3 STACs and a few other events. 2. I am not aware of LBIAD happening locally. We run our own beginner startup as detailed in another post. 3. I do some advertising in the local papers in advance of ...
Jackpots in club games - Increase attendance?

Club Play...Results
I am not necessarily a fan of the current ACBL policy of handing out sanctions to anyone anywhere, but dividing up territory per sanction is more like a franchise. It makes me worry about things like: 1. How territories are awarded to individuals? Seems like ACBL/District/Unit Politics would ...
Learning about our Forum: Club Play
Some day I would like to play bridge again for fun.
For Club Managers
We absorb the cost of the STAC (5.00 a table for our unit) By running 3 (Open, 499 and 199er) team games in addition to our regular schedule we show a profit. Otherwise its a wash between the slight increase in regular table count and the STAC fees. Now ...
ACBL Board of Governors Teacher and Club Manager Committee
I don't believe club appreciation games cost you any extra money. Just the regular sanction fee of $1 dollar a table.
