ACBL Competition and Conventions Committee
The club I play at is a not-for-profit and is a membership organization. Lifetime membership costs $50 and gets you a $2 per session discount in open games and voting rights. 99 percent plus of the folks in the open games are members. The limited games not quite that many ...
Looking for a bridge club in Southampton
Can you be a bit more specific? Which Southampton?
Two questions on team games
1) Simple answer - because no one has written the code into ACBLScore to make it work. I have 4 programs that do a good job of running a Swiss with bridgemates but the scores have to be transferred to ACBLScore 2) I wish it were the only strange "feature" in ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Wizards of the Coast makes their money selling new decks of cards with new monsters, new powers, etc. I quit playing Magic the Gathering when I realized that I would be spending lots of money just to play at home with friends. Imagine if the ACBL added a new suit ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Directors don't get $189 per session, that is what the ACBL charges. Some of that goes to the director, depending on the director's pay rate. $91.50 per diem in very few places (like New York City). Here in midwest its usually more like $50 or $55. I ...

ACBLScore in a multiple monitor environment
Don't open two instances of ACBLScore at once pointing at the same files. The result is damaged files, sometimes beyond repair.
Alerting ... how much information is too much information?
The number is staffed Monday thru friday 'till 10:00 PM Horn Lake time (Central) which is 11:00 PM Eastern
In the middle of a tournament, a player collapses. Do you know what to do?
Thank you for your work as an EMT. You are so right about everyone being trained. First Aid was a requirement when I was in High School (1964) but I don't think CPR was discussed. I had CPR/AED training many times during my work years, and here at ...
