Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
"Bermuda has never been an NBO" I don't think that's correct. Until Bermuda asked to be switched from Zone 2 to Zone 5, it was listed on the WBF website as an NBO in Zone 2. It is currently listed as an NBO in Zone 5. As I ...

Yeah. My point was that "nationals" in the 1920s were not ACBL functions. Since we're talking history, how did the ACBL end up an international organization? Those two that merged sound like they were strictly US organizations, at leas the latter one sure does.
Properly explaining a transfer accept
