about me

As a bit of trivia, together with Donna Compton practicing as Compton & Compton PLLC, we have represented more ACBL members before Ethical Oversight and Attorney Discipline Committee than any other lawyers. To give fair disclosure, this is about 15-20 cases, lifetime.

Also see www.playbetterbridge.com, for video clips and short PDF's of various bridge topics. 

We own the Bridge Academy of North Dallas which was the 13th largest ACBL club in 2017. see www.bridgeindallas.com 

Together with Gary King of Houston, we operate two bridge land cruises a year, one held in August in Santa Fe NM and one held in May in Galveston TX, see www.ulimatebridgevacations.com

My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
I should say that the 412M in revenue for the NRA in 2018 and 3.3M members separates it in size from the ACBL‘s budget of 18M and 160k members. While generally, i am discussing c(4’s) of similar size and budget; I am fascinated by the politics ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
In my experience as a lawyer, the non-tax deductibility of a donation leads to a lack funds which creates an unstable organizational structure both on Management and Board level. Think for example of the American Kindergarten through 12th grade public education (a non c3) and compare it with any 501 ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
The difference which debilitates a c(4) as compared with a c(3) is the non-tax deductibility of a donor’s gift.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Is this where I say the ACBL is not a 501(c)3, but a (c)4? Further, the difference is amazingly important.
Are you kidding me?
This is getting fixed on the new alert chart. We are announcing all transfers with the name of the suit transferred to. .... i believe.

Jeff, you have the support of the Bridge Academy of North Dallas, thanks!
