Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
It doesn't bother me if a Flight C pair wins some masterpoints for below average; it will encourage them to come back.
Symmetric Two-Bids (clubs and diamonds both strong and artificial)
I played these for a while, some time ago, also. They worked very well. However, the frequency of occurrence was very low, so we switched back to weak 2D.

In all these comments I have yet to see the word "chutzpah" used.
NABCs
During my working career, having the Fall Nationals over Thanksgiving was a great boon to me. It meant I could play four straight days without taking any vacation. Now, like everybody else, I'm retired, so that's not such a great idea anymore.
