No nearly enough
It all crap, ACBL does not care about the clubs. It is not rocket science, they take our money and in return expect us to promote bridge, teach new players run sanctioned games, shut our doors for Sectionals and Regionals, do our discipline and support the League. So basically we ...
Club Discipline
No idea if there is a difference between Bar and Suspend. I tend to use them both to have the same meaning, but that might just be an English thing. I tried to add in a community service penalty few times, especially in the case of good players who should ...
Will This Forum Become More Than an Exercise in Herding Squirrels?
Kevin there is not a hope in hell of actually making that list public on this forum. Far too many prying eyes and ears. Back to making up boards and hand records and running the game. And periodically announcing World Cup Scores.
Club Discipline
I have worn a multitude of disciplinary hats. Unit 525 Disciplinary Chair. Laguna Woods Bridge Club Disciplinary Chair Costa Mesa Bridge club, chief cook and bottle washer. 525 Of course everything was by the book. LWDBC, I used the code although of course the final court of appeal was the ...

ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment

Don I cant pass them all along, so some games I fund it partly out of my own pocket, it mostly balances out. They know why its higher as in they get more or different shades of MP, I am actually embarrassed to tell them they are getting skinned by ...
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
Of course Don, the ACBL BOD probably doesn't much care about the WC or any other regional conglomeration of districs. But it probably should have cared that a sitting BOD member was being paid by a conglomerate of districts while serving on those bodies. But hey what else is ...
Tacos and Such
What happened was all the Units incorporated as 501c3 as did some of the clubs. But only some of the Units pass on the profits to the clubs. Some are very good about it, some do it but not very well, and some do not do it at all. If ...
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
Michael, As per WC budget, $108,000 to the publisher of the forum , 40k on mailing and printing. Monzingo was the publisher of the Print edition, and is now the publisher of the online edition. If it was worth it? Who knows? personally I liked the print edition, was it ...
