about me

I was active in the Professional Bridge Tour during its brief but interesting life.  I play once or twice a month in my club and attend regional and national tournaments when able. I've authored several bridge books and articles including the beginner rubber bridge book Simplicity Bridge in 2009. I'm focused on finding ways to promote our game of contract bridge at the high school and college age levels using new tools and marketing methods. Somewhere along the line I managed to make Bronze Life Master, but not liking the echelons above LM concept I just claim LM. I will continue to play at bridge, hoping to someday come close to learning the game.

Jackpots in club games - Increase attendance?
Speaking of Rotary, it occurs to me that virtually every Rotary, Kiwanis, and other service club has an unrelenting need to find a weekly speaker. The rules are that you must keep your presentation to about 15 minutes and you can't sell any product or service (but you can ...
Jackpots in club games - Increase attendance?
A surprising amount of our Rotary club annual operating expenses were raised via the $1/ticket 50/50 weekly raffle. Gotta be careful local 5-0 or busy-bodies don't think you are running a casino, lol.

Is your club profit or non-profit? I tried to get similar press a couple years back and everyone was open until I had to answer no to "are you non-profit?" Clearly AA is, and ACBL is, but our club is not. They didn't want to split those hairs. I ...
World Bridge Day
Refer to Nick's committee. (No idea gets by unmolested.)
World Bridge Day
Or, in the case of college bridge, instruction on how to make the transition from high school. (Got fooled good by that one. Went all the way to the dean's office to find out who was teaching bridge at my local college. Oops!)
World Bridge Day
First time I've heard Johnny Crawford's name in a while. Nice!
Replace SAYC
If I were gay I think I'd love you. I'm an accredited EasyBridge instructor, and yep, it's about the money, not the bridge. But why not get paid? Let's hook up at a national some time and get our Grand etc. out of the way!
For Club Managers
Doctor, it hurts when I do that. Don't do that. Duh.
Put Up or...
Half blind, but yeah, think you've got it. Yea! (Knew you had it in ya.) Let's look at this. Screw the damn gov't. SCOTUS is with us now. Let's get it on.
