Club GNT Game
I think our district field sizes for GNT and NAP are similar as well. I think its both team vs pair and the fact that the GNT is not required for participation. Teams for our club are typically a special event scheduled once a month.(tournaments and holidays permitting) As ...
Question emailed to me.
Its a trick question. Clubs are a round suit.
Club Table Counts
Ray: I don't pass along the extra sanction fees. That way I only have to hear complaints about the price in a short window around when I raise prices. Otherwise I get to enjoy them for each special event. Rich: Thank you. I guess the only thing I have ...
Club Table Counts
My estimate for last year was that at $4 a table, It was about a break even proposition between the sanction fees and the extra tables of players trying to qualify in the last week. It was also something nice to do for the players who like extra red/black ...

Secret Sauce
We do not take our show on the road. The trick is to get them to come to the club. You need their cars to wear grooves in the pavement to the club. Transplanting players from an offsite location to the club doesn't take well. One step out of ...
Secret Sauce
I had noticed a lot of posts saying that free lessons don't work, don't ever mention the word duplicate and other things about not scaring away players. I wanted to show that our experience has been the opposite. Start them out the way you want them to finish ...
Club Play...Results
Steve is right about the telescoping nature of player revenue. You start out with a group of new players playing once a week and taking some lessons. As time passes the number of players that started in that group shrinks, but the number of times per week they play grows ...
