about me

I live in the mountains of western North Carolina (US) and work as a freelance editor of nonfiction. The latter was preceded by two lengthy stints as a systems engineer in the telecom industry. I have written and self-published several books and ebooks (one on bridge, the remainder on chess) and have recorded several digital audio tracks. I last played bridge in 2007.

Effective October 29, 2016, I will try to consistently use the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hen," which means "he or she" or "him or her," and the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hens," which means "his or her" or "his or hers."

There's at least one retired director in my District who I believe is well-recognized as meeting the criteria, and I'd imagine there are others scattered about the country. Whether any of them would be interested in directing a CBIA event is unknown.

"My point is that he's aiming for a very tiny target market with no proven level of demand." I would be interested to hear how one proves "level of demand," except by running a small pilot event and seeing how many enter. Oh wait, you can't do that ...

To explore Richard's concern #1, I was looking at the second Sunday's results from last year's San Francisco NABC. There seemed to be oodles of players listed who potentially might be interested in a Monday-after event having the characteristics I described. I don't know whether this ...
