about me

Trying to do what's best for the game, often by clearing up misconceptions and misinformation.  All opinions are my own and reflect no bridge organization or group.

Past: Served for 9 years on ACBL BoD, 4 years as BoG chairman, lifetime member of BoG, 9 years on D19 board, almost every unit job from grunt labor to unit president.  Proudest bridge admin experience was being "first spouse" to a great BoG chairman.

Current: Retired, but sharing my experience and knowledge.

United States of America

ACBL - Running a KO with a qualifying swiss?

ACBL - Running a KO with a qualifying swiss?
You know, you could always contact ACBL HQ, and get the answer straight from the horse's mouth. Or one of the ACBL TDs that are in D19. Better than second-hand, possibly incorrect suppositions from BW.
Lanzarotti Readmitted and the ACBL?

Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Jeff - the BoD has had several outside experts give them presentations regarding the legal responsibilities of non-profit board members. The information given was poo-poohed by the BoD, and was quickly dismissed as irrelevant and unneeded.
Lanzarotti Readmitted and the ACBL?
Sadly, that's probably gist for a future poll.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Unfortunately, I'd want to share in Dave Corn's action.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
All it would take is one well placed dropping of a dime. To use an old 70s reference.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
"Blubaugh was expelled" is incorrect. "Lanzarotti was expelled" is correct. "Blubaugh was suspended" is correct. But then, any excuse to have a beverage....
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
The nominations are self-made. Anyone could put their name forward to the BoD for election. Membership on the BoD is not a requirement (note Weinstein's prior election), but is often a major "leg up". Let me just say that IMO Hartman's qualifications to serve on the WBF board ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Spin management, combined with fiasco damage control??
