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

Changes for All ACBL Special Games
Keith Wells - I believe (and correct me if I am wrong, Stacy) that the concern is that the deals for the special games are not separate and distinct, aka "special" vis a vis the regular CG deals. Not that they are to be "cooked" or arranged - just why are the ...

D3 has no club or unit qualifying.
