REACH vs. Sectional: One Solution
We also had no say over whether clubs participated in REACH. While none of the clubs in our Unit participated, many clubs outside our unit but within driving distance of our Sectional chose to participate. If there had been bad weather, we would not have expected to be compensated by ...
REACH vs. Sectional: One Solution
The REACH dates were set by the ACBL, not the District, and we found out about them in December. Our Sectional dates had been set for over a year. The District felt it could not tell clubs to forego REACH, and it decided to compensate our Unit from its share ...
REACH vs. Sectional: One Solution
John, as I stated in my OP there is no way to draw a direct connection between REACH and our lower attendance. Maybe the lower table count on Saturday was because the REACH players, who I presume are mainly I/N's, had enough bridge for the week after playing ...
REACH vs. Sectional: One Solution

REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
So if I were registered and my partner not, and we had, say, a 60% game, then I would receive maybe 2 gold points based on my national finish, and my partner would receive maybe 4 silver points based on our Sectional finish? Would I receive both the gold and ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
So in that session you would have some of the players having paid the $30, and others who haven't? How would you award the master points when some are eligible for gold and others not? Just trying to understand.
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Is that possible? Would we have to charge each player $30? Also, our club has never participated in the Common Game - we make the boards and hand records ourselves.
