Hasta la vista, visa?
Cameron: For both philosophic and political reasons, although I would NEVER go to China, I agree that there is real risk for citizens of certain countries to go there (particularly with the US-China trade war). That being said, ANY country should have the right to bar a convicted felon from ...
A "Thank You" Would Be Nice !
Don: So what if there is a "lawsuit in the wind"?? Case law has well established (including a decision by the US Supreme Court) that private organizations can discipline their own members as they choose, provided they do not otherwise violate the law (i.e, discrimination based upon a "prohibited ...
A "Thank You" Would Be Nice !
Rob: Our unit, 140 (central NJ), has almost 3,000 members. Although I appreciate that we can apply for "Asst. Dist. Recorder" status (which I will recommend), I do not understand the logic in eliminating a Disciplinary Chair at the Unit level(particularly given the ineffectiveness of our District in ...
The Three-card Limit Raise: There must be a better way
Gil: I don't know if there is a reasonable solution to the problem you pose. A former partner of mine and I, before the introduction of the current chart system, used to play 2 over 1 as non-forcing, and 1nt in response to a major as forcing and unlimited ...
Steve: I agree wholeheartedly with going back to a 9:30 start time. In addition, as a purely voluntary organization, we incur few expenses, and coffee and bagels is not too much for ask for at breakfast time. It does NO GOOD to save a small amount of money if ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Randy: I cannot speak for Regional rates, although I believe they are the same. At the Unit 140 Sectional (central NJ) two weekends ago, the rates for ACBL directors were $159., $169., and $189., depending on their experience level. Rates for local directors, if permitted by the ACBL, are somewhat ...
Should This Type of Action be Recorded?
AGREED - One of the chief purposes of having a highly questionable action recorded is to prevent any such pattern occuring on a regular basis...How else is a Recorder to know????
The importance of understanding how ACBL players feel about bracketing
Melanie: As to your proposal, District 4 has adopted a modification of the KO approach you suggest -- NO TEAM is eliminated after 1 round. I am Tournament Chair in Unit 140 (central NJ). 20 years ago, on Sunday, we ran, concurrently, A/x, B/C/D and 299'er Swisses ...
Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
I find the discussion interesting... My take is: Since the ACBL has been almost UNIFORMLY unsuccessful for the past 7 years in hiring any top management position, why not try something new???
Frequent psyches by a particular pair
Rainer: I agree that psyching against inexperienced players is the worst of sins. At our club, I have no qualms about an occasional psych against the best pairs in the room, but I would NEVER do so against a "C" or even a "B" player.
