Blue Over Red Boards
"Colors are for children" A reference to coloring crayons that kids use I think.
GNT Format: Going Forward
If handicapping is a good idea, why do it just for flight B and not superflight, A, and C? Mike and I have to agree to disagree about this one.
How to Show 5-5 in the Majors
You can find Billy Miller's ACBL Bulletin article on "The Buzzard" dealing with slam going 5-5 major hands in the September 2010 issue. Its also available via the ACBL online archive of Bulletins if you're logged into your ACBL account.
Who should vote for ACBL board members?
I agree with Mike that many Unit board members do not have to run. Generally a desire to volunteer and help work for the Unit makes you a welcome member of the board. Chris, I don't know how it works everywhere but in my District the best way to ...
Donald Lurie's bidding problem: 864 KJT8 AQT4 AQ

I live in North East Wyoming and nobody plays that here. It must be a a Southern Wyoming thing they picked up under the influence of all your Colorado "air" wafting North. ;-)
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
At the Denver Regional a few weeks ago, the two session Board-A-Match teams started 40 minutes, 40 MINUTES, late. There was no explanation or apology.
Roman Keycard Asking Bid
I really like Kantar's suggestion that after hearing partner deny the queen, new suit bids should be to play. This means you can't make a frivolous queen ask knowing the answer. It does allow you to play in a another strain which can be very valuable. You don ...
