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.

Designing a better "Ecosystem"
A new club just opened in the Tucson suburbs. If your definition of "full-service" club means 1) a fixed, rented location, 2) teaching classes, and 3) restricted MP level games, and 4) daily games - well, I guess it fits. So there's an example.
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
So, if we "force" units and districts to spend their money in the ways "we" want to...all will be right?
Designing a better "Ecosystem"
So...we want the national organization (and I simplify by using that term - not to ignore/minimize Canada/Mexico/Bermuda) not to make profits on tournaments, but want the national organization to subsidize teachers/clubs/recruiters/advertising/marketing/(add your own here). Didn't know that they had money trees ...
